Kevin Holland vs Santiago Ponzinibbio Prediction
Kevin Holland (29-9-1) is coming off the back of two consecutive losses. One to Khamzat Chimaev and the next to Stephen Thompson. While “Trailblazer’s” stock has taken a dip prior to his 2020 resurgence, Holland still has a lot to offer and is a problem for many welterweights inside the top ten.
Holland is recognized for his explosive power and varied striking techniques. He effectively uses his 81-inch reach to maintain a safe distance from his opponents.
Despite being skilled in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Holland mostly relies on his striking abilities during fights. He holds a professional record of 21-7 and has defeated notable fighters such as Joaquin Buckley, Anthony Hernandez, and Darren Stewart.
Santiago Ponzinibbio (29-6), is coming off an impressive KO win over Alex Morona last December, a catch-weight bout that scored Ponzinibbio’s performance of the night. Prior to that most recent win, Ponzinibbio lost two back-to-back fights by split decision, to Michel Pereira and Geoff Neal.
Ponzinibbio, known for his Muay Thai, has secured victories over notable fighters such as Neil Magny, Gunnar Nelson, and Mike Perry, utilizing powerful punches, leg kicks, and a high fight IQ.
Santiago Ponzinibbio has experienced long periods of inactivity due to injuries, which could affect his timing and sharpness in fights. While he possesses solid grappling skills, Holland could take advantage of his weaker takedown defense and attempt to take the fight to the ground.
In terms of stats for UFC 287, Ponzinibbio has typically more striking volume with 5.02 significant strikes landed per minute compared to Holland at 4.06. If Ponzinibbio wants to find a path to victory he’ll need to pressure Holland and close the distance by using his diverse range of strikes and kicks early in the fight.
I see this fight playing out as a back-and-forth scramble, with Ponzinibbio and Holland both having success on their feet. Overall, Holland has a better chance of success here and I expect him to grind out a decision victory.
