Kevin Holland must have some literal skeletons in his closet the way he’s trying to acquire the goodwill of his community. Jokes aside, the loud-mouthed UFC star has gained a reputation for being an outlaw, helping random people fallen on misfortune around wherever he is in Texas. Now he’s added another more traditional approach to helping his community, with charity.
Kevin Holland, many felt was pushed to wolves of the middleweight division too soon, in the form of fights against Marvin Vettori and Derek Brunson, where he was soundly defeated by both. Since his return to welterweight, where he has announced he plans to stay, Holland has had two amazing showings, finishing both fights in the second round.
As he waits for a fight, Holland in the meantime picks up his hobby of helping people, this time in a more traditional way but putting his twist to it. The idea was inspired by the Rapper, Trae Tha Truth.
Kevin Holland gives away free gas under his own The Helping Brother Charity Drive
Kevin was seen at Arlington Texas, where he was helping families get free fillings of one of the most expensive everyday products around the world right now, gas. Yes, as we said the idea was inspired by rapper Trae the Truth who did a similar thing for 100 families around Texas, after filling up a contest form.
Holland partnered with QuikTrip, a convenience store chain in the US, as he offered to pay for customers to fill up their gas tanks. This was done as a part of his Back 2 School Fuel Up” campaign alongside The Helping Brothers.
Holland shared a video of the same where he can be seen clicking photos with fans and accepting their gratitude for the kind gesture.
The gesture resounded well with fans who already held Kevin in high regard, thanks to his vigilante antics. On the professional side of things it has recently been a lul.
Holland last campaigned for a fight against Nate Diaz as he exits the UFC, a fight that ultimately went to Holland’s former rival, Khanzat Chimaev. Since then he has not campaigned for a specific opponent. Who do you think he should face next?
