Derek Brunson on Kevin Holland: “He’s trying to back out… he didn’t think I’d accept.”

After Kevin Holland finished competing for the year, with a record of 5-0 in 2020, he turned his attention to Derek Brunson. Holland spoke to Ariel Helwani earlier in the week and stated that Brunson is the next fight he wants, at the UFC Apex.

After the interview, both fighters had some back and forth on Twitter, involving Derek Brunson verbally accepting the bout. Now, Brunson is claiming that he is waiting for a contract, but Holland is trying to back out of the fight.

“Bih shut up,” Brunson said on Twitter. “You keep getting gifts. Fighting debuts when you’re 5 fights in the ufc, old men and a guy with a 11-7 record. Hating on Buckley cause he’s getting shine. You don’t see Brendan Allen mentioning your name. When he choked you with ease. Gotta teach you some respect.”

“Holland knows the cards are full for Jan & Mostly Feb. He’s trying to back out the fight on the low. Never in my life have I seen someone talk so much and backpedal! 10 weeks til feb 27, 11 weeks til March 6. He didn’t think I’d accept. Waiting on the contract!”
