Anthony Hernandez is a young 27-year-old fighter that is nicknamed “Fluffy” in the ring. He hails from Dunnigan, California and trains at the MMA Gold Fight Team. He currently has a 7-1 record coming into this fight and he has five submission victories under his name. Prior to coming to the UFC, Hernandez made his name in LFA and GKO as a submission artist. He had a chance to impress Dana White. This was with a submission victory in Tuesday Night Contender Series but it was overturned by NSAC. He made his MMA debut in February 2019 but he was defeated by Markus Perez via submission. He made it up in August 2019 at UFC Fight Night 157 where he had an impressive second-round victory over Jun Yong Park through an anaconda choke.

His hometown is in Fort Worth, Texas and his current fighting record is at 16-5. Holland made his name known to Dana White in the Contender Series where he won through a unanimous decision against Will Santiago back in June 2018. He earned his spot on the UFC roster and made his debut against Thiago Santos in UFC 227 but lost via decision. He learned his lesson and won his next three matches. His momentum was halted in his previous match in UFC on ESPN back in October 2019 when he submitted to Brendan Allen in the second round via rear-naked choke.
