Just days after a middleweight fight between Kevin Holland and Kyle Daukaus concluded in an unsatisfying no contest result, UFC is already working quickly to get the rematch going. The promotion is reportedly looking to make the fight for their November 13th event, per a report from Brett Okamoto of ESPN.
Should the fight be made official, it would join a card that is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Holland and Daukaus first faced off at UFC’s October 2nd show. Their fight concluded in the first round, as an accidental head collision hurt Holland and lead to a submission finish that came moments later. While it seemed at first that Daukaus was going to get a victory for the outcome, it was later ruled by judges that it would be a no-contest result.
With a new matchup already back on the schedule, Holland will be looking to earn his first win of 2021. He lost two main event appearances before his fight against Daukaus, dropping lopsided decisions to Derek Brunson and Marvin Vettori.
Daukaus will also be looking to return to the win column, as he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Phil Hawes in May.
