Exclusive: Kevin Holland hopes to put an end to the hype surrounding Michael “Venom” Page at UFC 299 by being unfazed and unbothered


<p>Unfazed by the excitement surrounding his opponent, who is making his professional debut, UFC star Kevin Holland is focused on collecting his paycheck as he faces UK fighter Michael “Venom” Page in the octagon at UFC 299 at the Kaseya Centre in Miami, Florida.</p>

<p>The 31-year-old is coming off a split decision defeat to Jack Della Naddalena, with which he obviously disagrees, and he will be looking to make a statement in his next match. Since his debut in Dana White’s Contender series, Holland has come a long way. Having competed in 36 bouts, he has won 25 of them (14 by knockout and 7 by submission). Since both guys have a reputation for being skilled strikers, the fight will probably be a stand-up affair. However, Holland has also shown his ability to take down opponents defensively, which may help him prevail on the ground.</p>
<p>In an exclusive interview with News18 Sports, Holland said that he is unfazed and focused on winning the welterweight match, which will feature a fight between two highly-regarded strikers.</p>
<p><strong>What is the route you plan to take in order to get the title?</strong></p>
<p>Titles are not really a concern for me. All I care about is being paid every time I fight. I thus worry about receiving a check every day.</p>
<p><strong>Do you think that having your opponent in the limelight will give you more incentive to put an end to the excitement around Michael Venom Page?</strong></p>
<p>Yes, it’s always a pleasant experience to approach someone you’ve heard so much about and shake their hand.</p>
<p><strong>How critical is it that you recover from the defeat in the last fight?</strong></p>
<p>I prevailed in my prior battle. Yes, that sounds fantastic, but that night, the judges were high.</p>
<p><strong>Are you and your opponent both well recognized for your proficiency in striking? What do you believe to be your greatest advantage before the fight?</strong></p>
<p>Basically, I’m trying to punch him as hard as possible in the mouth.</p>
<p><strong>He seems to be ignoring you as well, since he is reportedly eyeing the championship match against Leon. What do you think about this?</strong></p>
<p>No, they’re both from the UK, so he can still go fight there even if he loses here. That is unrelated to me. For my part, all I want to do is win, eat my steak, and go shopping.</p>
<p><strong>Do you believe that your UFC opponents have been more skilled than MVPs?</strong></p>
<p>Indeed, there has been more competition than I have encountered, but we’ll see whether it pays off on Saturday night.</p>
<p><strong>Given that your opponent is said to fight unconventionally, did you undergo any special training for this battle?</strong></p>
<p>Not really; it’s all the same regardless of whether he backflips or dances in the cage. The only thing that counts while he’s directly in front of me is that I still have to aim for his lips at the end of the day. If he chooses to dance, I’ll let him for however long he wants to. I’m not a dancer.</p>
<p><strong>What do you think will happen in the fight? What is your outlook for it?</strong></p>
<p>Be attractive, assertive, and in charge. Baby, it’s P.P.D.</p>
