Holland was beyond happy after receiving a gift from Dana White.
Holland recently uploaded a post on Instagram hinting at retiring from the sport of mixed martial arts following his loss to Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 279.
His early retirement shocked a lot of fans, including UFC President Dana White, considered he retired at a relatively young age.
White, who is a big fan of the 29-year-old was recently asked about Kevin’s early retirement, Although Dana wants to give Kevin the freedom to do whatever he wanted, Dana was a bit disappointed for sure.
“He gets out of the fight with Derek Brunson and realizes that he needs to work on his wrestling more. So he dives in and starts working on his wrestling and I think what happened to him happens to you, you lay in bed and go, ‘Holy s**t!’… He’s an emotional guy. I think the emotions got the best of him. Just take some time, get back in the gym and whatever he wants to do he can do. But, it’s a little too soon for him to retire.”
While that was all White had to say about Holland’s retirement, it turns out the 52-year-old would get “Trailblazer” a gift shortly after. an emotional Holland can be seen reacting to receiving sneakers from White.
