UFC Orlando: What has been said?

“It’s not really a stand-and-bang (fight),” Holland said.

“It’s a real technical standup fight, and you have to implement certain things to get to ‘Wonderboy’ and have your way with ‘Wonderboy.’

“I plan on implementing those things, and I plan on showing that I can strike with the best of them.

“Its’s just a very, very fun matchup. Talk about a guy that’s fought for a world title, that’s fought some of the best out there at the top of the weight class for a long time.

“If you do want a number next to your name, you have to go through somebody like that.”
