Donald Cerrone is game for a fight against Kevin Holland at welterweight, after his fight with Joe Lauzon.
Holland made his welterweight debut against Alex ‘Cowboy’ Oliveira at UFC 272, and ended up finishing the fight in the second round via TKO. Holland made the move from middleweight to welterweight after struggling against the bigger opponents.
After the win over Oliveira, Holland turned his sights to another ‘Cowboy’.
“Honestly, I don’t know exactly who I want next. I just took out one ‘Cowboy,’ I’d hate to call out another but it’s whatever the world wants, you know what I mean? I give you guys whatever you guys want. You guys want me to fight at ’85, ’70, hell I’ll cut a leg off and go to ’45 if that’s what you guys wanted. I love my people.” Holland said. (H/T BJPenn)
In the post-fight press conferences, Holland walked that callout back. it seems as if he has turned his sights to Daniel Rodriguez.
