Anthony Hernandez vs Kevin Holland – 5/16/20 UFC Fight Night Pick & Prediction

UFCWhen you are looking at the battle here you will notice that it is another middleweight fight here. The fight will actually feature another upcoming star in Anthony Hernandez coming into the fight to take on a fairly well established veteran in Holland. The difference is that Hernandez has ended up fighting really well and does have a good fighting mindset once he gets in the ring.

Fluffy is coming into the fight with an orthodox stance and when it comes to fighting style he tends to favor the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The last fight for Hernandez was a win by submission over Jun Yong Park. The win allowed Hernandez to improve to a 7-1 overall, but 1-0 in the TKO/KO and he is 5-1 when it comes to submission fighting. For Hernandez he is coming in with a decent number of significant strikes per minute at 5.23, but also has been fairly accurate at 54.09%.

Holland is coming into the fight here with an orthodox style that has helped him out quite a bit, but also uses Kung Fu for his fighting style more than anything else. The last fight the Trailblazer was involved in ended up being a loss by submission to Brendan Allen in October. The loss dropped Holland to a 16-5 mark and he is 7-0 with the TKO/KO fights, but his submission record is sitting at 6-2. For his part Holland averages 4.16 significant strikes per minute. However, out of those strikes only 54.6% are actually accurate and landing in the right spot.

The tale of the tape will see Hernandez heading into the fight standing at 6’0” and coming in at 185 pounds. However, the reach that Hernandez has is going to come in at a total of 75 inches. Holland is heading into the bout with a very distinctive height advantage at 6’3” and 185 pounds. When it comes to reach Holland has another big advantage at 81 inches.

Anthony Hernandez vs Kevin Holland – Anthony Hernandez -115

The battle between Hernandez and Holland is coming in dead even in the line. The odds makers have both sitting at a -115 as of 5/14/20 when I am writing this UFC preview. However, what is going to make a difference in the battle here is the fact that Hernandez does throw more significant blows per minute and while his accuracy is only slightly lower, it will not make much of a difference when Hernandez is landing almost 1 punch more per minute.
