UFC Orlando: What was said?

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

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

“I plan to implement those things, and I plan to show that I can hit with the best of them.

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

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