Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The UFC has released the poster for its first December event of 2020.

An intriguing middleweight contest between Jack Hermansson and Kevin Holland headlines UFC Vegas 16, set to take place Dec. 5 at the UFC APEX and stream on ESPN+.

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.
