Kevin Holland officially retires from the UFC. Trailblazer, a former UFC welterweight who also fought in the middleweight division, made his retirement announcement from the league earlier this month. On his official Instagram page, “Trailblazer” announced his retirement, but not everyone is sure how long it will last.
“So I’m retired, I’m officially retired,” Kevin said during the launch of his new podcast. “I’m retired from fighting. I had a good fight, good payday, I had a good run. I see some of the people online: ‘obviously he realizes he’ll never get the belt,’ and my little psychedelic trip, that means I was wrong. I can’t be wrong on a psychedelic trip. I’ve lost coming out to Young Boy. That was my last hope, never losing coming out to Young Boy. Times are rough for your boy. But I’m really, really happy on the green side. Unless something super-duper magical pops up, yeah, I’m pretty happy with the way things are.”
Kevin Holland, 29, had some back stage conflicts with UFC welterweight / middleweight Khamzat Chimaev. Trailblazer didn’t hesitate to save the pay-per-view event and accepted a fight with “Borz” Chimaev who missed the weight. After first round loss against Khamzat, during the post fight interview he mentioned that, he got paid lots of money from Dana White for saving September’s pay-per-view event.
Regardless of whether or if former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub wants to support this silly statement, that could be the last time UFC fans see Holland compete inside the Octagon, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the part-time crime fighter will be through with combat sports.
“Brendan Schaub, he’s always saying weird stuff,” Trailblazer said. “He said something that I thought was weird and I thought it was Schaub’s page but I guess it’s his people. I message him, ‘what’s up with what you said?’ and they were like ‘this is not Schaub’ and I felt kind of dumb. We’ve got to get some boxing rounds in for some of the fly stuff he was saying. No MMA. He might take me down and I don’t have time for that shit. That’s why I retired, I don’t want to wrestle anymore.. I think he’s down [to box]. He’s not a pussy unless he’s a pussy and then he wouldn’t be down. For sure, boxing, me, Schaub, weight doesn’t even matter in that situation.”
