UFC FIGHT NIGHT: Brunson vs. Holland is set for this Saturday, March 20, live from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The main card will be available on ESPN and simulcast on ESPN+ in English and Spanish, starting at 10 p.m. ET (ESPN Deportes will be available at 11 p.m. ET). Live coverage begins on Friday, with the UFC Pre-Show at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN+, followed by UFC Live presented by DraftKings at 5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The Pre Show provides fans with exclusive insights and views on the biggest stories heading into UFC Fight Night.

In a showdown of high-profile middleweight contenders, No. 7-ranked Derek Brunson (21-7-0) will square off against No. 10-ranked Kevin Holland (21-5-0) as they each attempt to advance their win streaks and build a case for a title shot.  Following a record-tying year in which Holland won five bouts, three by knockout, the rising star aims to continue his momentum in 2021. The talented striker and grappler will have to get past the knockout-powered Brunson, who is coming off one of his most impressive performances to date against the highly-touted Edmen Shahbazyan, who he handed his first professional defeat. Brunson’s last loss came at the hands of current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in 2018.

In the co-main event, Gregor Gillespie ends his 16-month hiatus after the first loss of his career by taking on Brad Riddell who is 9-1 in the 155-pound weight class.
