Chimaev and Holland were accompanied by a series of security guards in the cage. To the chagrin of everyone they indeed did fist bump.
And as soon as it was go time Chmiaev shot for a takedown. Holland recovered on the first one – however not so much the second. Holland’s scrambling was wastly improved. Chimaev had japanese necktie aspirations but recovered to try and d’arce choke Holland.
By the looks of if Holland is in real trouble from the get go. This one will end with him getting choked out by the looks of it. Holland ended up tapping in the end
The two seemed friendly in the cage afterwards which is hilarious considering the havoc they caused this week.
Impressive showcase of the grappling game
