UFC Orlando Results, Thompson vs Holland
The UFC Orlando Results are in. Thompson vs Holland aired on ESPN+ December 3, 2022 live from Orlando and it was another entertaining night put on by the UFC. The main event had a lot of discussion about being possibly the fight of the year.
The main event, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson vs Kevin ‘Trailblazer’ Holland, had fans on the edge of their seats. In the second round it appeared a Thompson spinning heel kick possibly broke Hollands right hand when he attempted to block the kick, but that’s unverified. After three rounds of action, a bazaar turn of events had the fight called for a moment but then they realized it was a groin strike and Holland was allowed to recover and the fight continued. They fought on for another round where Holland was hit with some big shots that he took in stride. However, after the forth round Holland had enough and the fight ended by way of TKO from his corner. An astounding fight by two incredible strikers.
In the co-main event, Bryan Barberena vs #7 and former UFC champion Rafael Dos Anjos, which showcased that Rafael Dos Anjos has still got it. There seemed to be no answer from Barberena for Dos Anjos’ wrestling and ultimately his submission skills as he forced the tap from Barberena early in the second round.
Here’s the official post fight announcement and ring interview for the winner. Below that are the remaining results.
