Kevin Holland stops a car robbery and captures the thief

Kevin Holland is having a very eventful week. Just two days out from his UFC Vegas 38 fight, Holland was involved in apprehending a carjacker in his neighborhood. Holland chased down a car thief through the streets of his town and with the help of his coach was able to stop the man and turn him over to the police.

Later that day, Holland went on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani to explain the details of the chase.

“I was driving down the street, some guy comes zooming out of a parking lot, some guys are running behind him,” Holland said. “They were like, ‘Hey, he stole my car.’ I was like, yo, I’ve been in quarantine for a week, I didn’t get to finish my fight, so let’s go have a little fun. I busted a U-turn and start going after the guy. The guy turns and hits a tree. I get out of my car, this is my moment, I run up on him, I go to grab the car and he reverses.”

Later Holland explained that Dorsey and the people who owned the car tracked the thief down who later hit a trailer being towed by a truck.  Holland trapped the man in his with his car and began to pursue him.

“I’m chasing down after him. I hit him with a little sweep, hit him with a little Khabib scarf hold. He was like, ‘I cant breath’, that when I picked him up and put him on the curb.”

Kevin Holland is straight off a disappointing bout at UFC Vegas 38 when his fight with Kyle Daukaus has called a No-Contest after an accidental headbutt. Holland is looking to run that fight back with Daukaus, but in the meantime, he is serving as a vigilante. The carjacker was turned over to authorities.
