In Numbers: Kevin Holland vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk

UFC
May 28, 2024
The upcoming Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view showcase, UFC 302, features a middleweight clash that will set the tone for the co-main and main event fights to follow.

Kevin Holland, the organization’s go-to crisis fighter to revitalize the lineup of any event, will return to the 185-pound bracket having competed at welterweight in recent years. He is coming off consecutive losses to Jack Della Maddalena and Michael Page but remains a top draw in the organization despite only two wins in last five outings. Meanwhile, his foe, Michal Oleksiejczuk, has lost two of his last three Octagon outings, suffering submission losses to Caio Borralho and Michael Pereira. The Pole holds a 7-5 record in the Las Vegas-based organization with 1 no contest, and will be keen on recapturing momentum starting with a victory over Holland. With that, let’s take a look at some of the statistical intricacies that bind the fighters together.

7: The ever-entertaining Holland has earned six “Performance of the Night” bonuses and one “Fight of the Night” honor, meaning that he has taken home incentive money in over one-third of his 20 UFC bouts to date.

5: In 2020, “Trailblazer” defeated Anthony Hernandez, Joaquin Buckley, Darren Stewart, Charlie Ontiveros and Ronaldo Souza, tying Roger Huerta (2007) and Neil Magny (2014) for the most wins in a calendar year in UFC history. All three men went a perfect 5-0 in their respective year.

1: For that remarkable run, culminating in his memorable performance against “Jacare” in which he knocked out the grappling legend with punches from a seated position, Holland was named Sherdog’s Breakthrough Fighter of the Year for 2020, the first such selection of his career.

7: Not one to be bounded by the calendar, Holland’s drive to maintain active participation is illustrated by the fact that he holds the record for most UFC appearances in a rolling 12-month period. He competed seven times between May 16, 2020 and April 10, 2021.

1,219: The American holds the 10th spot in middleweight history for total strikes landed.

4.24: Holland lands 4.24 significant strikes per minute with 49% accuracy.

19: Oleksiejczuk has 19 wins on his professional record with seven losses and one no-contest.

14: “Hussar” has rattled off 14 KO/ TKO finishes, constituting 74% of his wins.

5.06: He lands 5.06 significant strikes per minute which amounts to 50% striking accuracy.

61%: Oleksiejczuk demonstrates formidable defense in his fights, evading 61% of incoming opponent onslaughts while absorbing 4.26 strikes per minute on average.
