After having his four-fight winning streak snapped by Jared Cannonier in September 2019, Hermansson made the most of his first 2020 appearance and submitted former interim title challenger Kelvin Gastelum in just over a minute at UFC Fight Island 2 in July.
Holland has had a breakout 2020 as he looks to join a shortlist of fighters who have gone 5-0 in a single year. “Trail Blazer” has picked up stoppage wins over Anthony Hernandez, Joaquin Buckley and Charlie Ontiveros, as well as a split decision win over Darren Stewart. Holland replaces the injured Darren Till on short notice.
