Off the back of an impressive victory at UFC Austin last Saturday, welterweight division mover, Kevin Holland has offered to share the Octagon with veteran Stockton native, Nate Diaz – who is still yet to secure his last contracted fight with the organization.
Featuring in an impromptu co-headliner at UFC Austin over the course of the last weekend, Kevin Holland managed to secure an impressive second round D’Arce choke win against veteran divison staple, Tim Means, bloodying the Albuquerque native en route to a dominant victory.
The victory came as Holland’s second of the year and second straight since his welterweight division return back in March at UFC 273 – stopping promotional alum, Alex Oliveira with a quickfire second round knockout on that occasion.
Nate Diaz has tirelessly campaigned to score his last contracted UFC outing, with Kevin Holland throwing his name into the hat
As for Diaz, the one-time lightweight title challenger has continually campaigned to score the last fight on is current contract with the UFC – still to no avail, as he weighs up a transition to professional boxing if he cannot secure his final contracted bout by August.
“UFC release [me] now please or give me fight with anyone in July or August,” Nate Diaz tweeted. “I have bigger sh*t to do.”
Replying to Diaz, Holland – also a native of California, offered to share the Octagon with the Stockton fan-favorite, insisting that he would be his “anyone”.
“Anyone? Ok, I’ll be anyone just for you lil’ Nate (Diaz)!” Kevin Holland tweeted from his account, which is now named ‘I’m ‘Anyone’ For Diaz’.”
In the midst of a two-fight losing run, Diaz most recently featured on the main card of UFC 263 in June of last year, suffering a rather comprehesive unanimous decision loss opposite incoming title challenger, Leon Edwards in the first five round, non-title, non-headliner in UFC antiquity.
