Kevin Holland wasn’t at 100 percent for the majority of his UFC on ESPN 42 headlining clash against Stephen Thompson.

Holland’s management team, KO Reps, revealed that the fighter broke his hand in the first round of the bout. Not surprisingly, that was his most effective period, as he staggered “Wonderboy” with a right hand early. As time wore on, however, Holland didn’t throw the right nearly as much, and Thompson took control en route to a fourth-round technical knockout victory.

“[Kevin Holland] broke his right hand landing a cross in the first round,” the statement read. “Hand is very swollen. Being transported to the hospital. Congrats to [Stephen Thompson] and team.”

ESPN later reported that Holland broke the third, fourth and fifth metacarpal bones in his right hand and will need to undergo surgery to repair the injury. A timetable for Holland’s recovery is currently unknown. “Trailblazer is 2-2 in 2022, with finishes of Alex Oliveira and Tim Means and losses to Khamzat Chimaev and Thompson on his ledger.
