Kevin Holland will welcome Brazilian Antonio Arroyo to the UFC on Nov. 16 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Holland recently announced the fight on his Instagram account.
Holland is riding a three-fight winning streak in the UFC after losing his promotional debut to Thiago Santos at UFC 227. During that time, he has beaten John Phillips by submission and defeated Gerald Meerschaert and Alessio Di Chirico by decision. “Trailblazer” was signed by the promotion after winning a fight on the Contender Series in 2018.
Arroyo made back-to-back appearances on the Contender Series, first on the Brazilian season in 2018, when he beat Diego Henrique da Silva by decision. However, he was not signed and returned for Season 2 to beat Stephen Regman by submission in the second round to earn a contract.
UFC Sao Paulo goes down on Nov. 16 and will air in its entirety on ESPN+.
