The two have already fought each other in the UFC with Holland coming out victorious with a signature dominant knockout win were throughout the fight he was constantly taunting and mocking Buckley's skills. After this loss, Buckley came back with a bang and delivered one of the greatest knockouts the UFC has ever seen with a spinning back kick knockout over Impa Kasanganay.
It is fair to say that Holland did not have any sympathy for Buckley after his loss.

The Onion: Parents Cheer As 8-Year-Old Son Chokes Out Opponent In UFC Jr. League Match
The Onion published a satirical piece on children fighting in the UFC's newest feeder league.
Read an excerpt below:
Standing up and shouting at the referee as his opponent landed an illegal knee from half guard, Mitch and Ashley Felden cheered on their 8-year-old son, Tanner, Saturday as he secured a submission victory in his UFC Jr. League match. '“It’s great for a kid’s confidence when they learn how to roundhouse kick an opponent,” said Felden of his son, revealing that he had bet part of the child’s college fund on the fight. “MMA has really taught him resilience, he didn’t even cry while getting his face stitched up last time. We enrolled him in combat sports at 6, which is actually a pretty late start these days. He’s taken to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but a lot of kids switch to wrestling once they get to high school. We’re happy either way, as long as he’s pummeling people.”
At press time, UFC suspended Tanner for seven months after he climbed over the octagon cage and attacked his opponent’s trainer.
