The UFC 287 PPV main card is moving right along and just witnessed Kevin Holland pull off a sweet third round knockout of Santiago Ponzinibbio.

The opening round was pretty competitive, with Holland fighting long and Ponzinibbio searching for a way to close the distance. Just as Ponzinibbio started to rally at the end of the round, Holland dropped him with a back fist after Santiago caught a kick.

The second stanza saw Ponzinibbio stay true to his leg kick, while checking the leg attacks from Holland. The jab was constant from Holland, who was delivering his volume from the outside. Holland buzzed Ponzinibbio again towards the end of the round with some hard punches, but again Santiago was able to quickly recover.

The ending came deep into the third round when Holland leaped in with a wild left hook that separated Santiago from his senses. Ponzinibbio fell to all fours and did a faceplant, and then Holland pounced on him with an academic ground strike.
