UFC middleweight Kevin Holland recently got a few messages on Instagram from an internet troll who believed he’d be able to beat him in a fight, and it’s not hard to imagine that this is something of an industry hazard for professional combat sports athletes. Surprisingly though, not only was Holland happy to accept the challenge that the troll issued but the man in question actually showed up to take him on too. The interaction didn’t go anywhere near the way the troll thought it would of course, and he was dealt with incredibly quickly by the professional MMA fighter.
Kevin Holland actually shared a screenshot of the original messages that the internet troll sent to him and in fairness, it’s not hard to see why the UFC fighter actually took up the challenge:
This troll thought he was a tough guy or skilled or some bs. So I put his ass on a bus, paid for his hotel room and brought him in for a session. How it started- pic.twitter.com/fsBiEcnvoJ

This isn’t the first time that Holland has been seen on camera using his skills to handle an average person either, as he was recently seen stopping an alleged carjacking in action too. Holland is a highly experienced UFC veteran and he won his first contract the hard way, by winning a fight on Dana White’s Contender Series back in 2018. Although he lost his official UFC debut later that year, he turned it around incredibly well by rattling off three straight wins until he was submitted by Brendan Allen in his final fight of 2019.
Holland didn’t stay down for long though as he put in a very busy year in 2020 by fighting a total of five times, winning every one and tying the record for most wins in a single year. The end of that year saw the highest moment of Holland’s career when he managed knockout BJJ legend Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza in the very first round. He’s only competed three times since then, losing his first two main event fights against Derek Brunson and Marvin Vettori before having a no contest result against Kyle Daukaus after experiencing a clash of heads.
