Kyle Daukaus versus Kevin Holland has been officially re-booked for a UFC Fight Night on November 13th. The quick rematch news came shortly after their first encounter ended in a no-contest.
UFC Vegas 38
Holland faced Daukaus just a week ago at UFC Vegas 38. Their initial match lasted just three minutes. During the fight, a sequence occurred where both men clashed heads in a special effort. Initially, Holland seemed to be knocked unconscious by the headbutt. But, he seemingly recovered from the accidental clash and continued to fight.
Holland was able to stuff an initial takedown as the pair of men fought against the cage. However, Daukaus could eventually get the takedown, take Kevin’s back, and sink in a rear-naked choke, forcing Holland to tap.
Initially, the ruling of the fight was in favor of Daukus by submission. Nonetheless, a second look via referee Dan Miragliotta changed the initial ruling to a no contest.
Kyle Daukaus versus Kevin Holland Rebooked
The referee and the athletic commission determined that the clash of heads should have ruled Holland unable to continue. UFC analysts Daniel Cormier and his partners in the booth thought that the fight deserved to be immediately booked again after the unfortunate result.
