UFC Vegas 23 takes place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
We were looking forward to a well matched fight for a shot at Israel Adensanya's title, between Darren Till and Marvin Vettori.
Till had to pull out because of a broken collar bone.
None other than Kevin Holland stepped up to save the headline fight in the middleweight division.
MMA fans got to know Holland last year because of his impressive run of 5 consecutive wins and entertaining trash talk:
Best of Kevin Holland
Until he messed up badly in his last fight against Derek Brunson. It was so bad, Dana White left the fight prematurely. Disgusted.
Kevin will probably end up on Dana's good side again, if he delivers a great fight against Vettori. He seems to have learned his lesson:
