    The guy is very lean and dry on the scale at 186lbs.

    He's 6'3 with visible abs on fight night at middleweight with very little muscle bulk. He's thin with a large frame.

    This dude will look awful making a scale read 171lbs and I think this is really ill advised.

    Cutting more weight isn't a solution to his deficiencies in defensive grappling. His takedown defense is non existent, as we've all seen. Cutting weight is almost never the solution.

    The point is for him to fight guys the same size as him. He was outsized at MW.

    Bad move IMO. WW and MW are both pedestrian divisions now thatve seen better days but WW has much better prospects on the rise and have much more wrestlers/grapplers that trouble Holland.

    Forget all of them, the fight that he should get is Neil Magny vs Kevin Holland or Randy Brown vs Kevin Holland (also 6'3)
    to see who the best 6'3 guy in 170 division truly is.

    I know he has beaten neal before.not sure if it was at 170 or 185. I would like to see him debut against someone like randy brown or mickey gall.he needs a win and it has to be against someone atleast some people would recognize.price,d-rod,Pereira or chimaev would all be super fun

    I’m a Holland fan ….His Tdd is awful and I feel his standup is extremely overrated

    He won't be losing 15 pounds. He fights really low, I believe his MW debut he was 192 lbs (in California).

    There's already WW's competing in the cage on fight night at weights higher than that. He'll just be cutting more now

    His X factor is he can rock guys from a lot of different angles, I think he’ll be good for 170
