Chimaev vs Holland Prediction
UFC 279 Chimaev-Holland prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Khamzat Chimaev (81%)
Method of Victory: Submission (59%)
Due to not being able to make weight, Khamzat Chimaev now faces Kevin Holland in the UFC 279 co-main event. Chimaev is one of the UFC's fastest rising stars, going undefeated to begin his MMA career. Meanwhile, Holland is starting to build momentum after winning both of his last two fights.
While Holland has more experience here, the opponents that he's recently beat aren't on Chimaev's level. "Borz" has dominated everyone put in front of him and his relentless striking attack might be too much for Holland to handle.
I could see this being a hard-hitting longer fight, making Chimaev winning by decision at +260 the best bet.
