Middleweights Kevin Holland and Kyle Daukaus won’t get their rematch bout on November 13th, as Holland has recently been pulled from the lineup due to an undisclosed injury.
Holland’s withdrawal from the card was confirmed by Damon Martin of MMA Fighting on Wednesday. Their fight was set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Holland and Daukaus first fought earlier this month, resulting in an unsatisfying no contest.
The result came about due to an accidental head collision between the middleweights that seemingly knocked Holland out. The fight continued after the knockdown, with Daukaus securing a rear naked choke on Holland to finish the fight.
While it first seemed that Daukaus was going to be awarded a win for his fight, the result was reviewed and eventually finalized as a no-contest by officials at the event.
It was decided only days afterward that the middleweights would be booked to meet again in November.
It is unknown at the moment whether Daukaus will get a new opponent for November, or if his bout against Holland will be rescheduled. A recent social media post from the former CFFC Middleweight Champion insinuated that he wants to meet Holland next year and face someone else at the November 13th card.
“Hey [Holland,] Sorry to hear about the injury. Heal up,” said Dauakus via Twitter. “I’ll see you in February, but first I’m gonna handle some business.”
Featherweights Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez are currently set to headline UFC’s November 13th card.
