UFC fan-favorite fighter Kevin Holland is returning to action on June 18 against “The Dirty Bird,” Tim Means, in Austin, Texas, at welterweight.

Holland revealed the news in a sketch video posted to Twitter on Friday. It starts with Holland sitting at a table counting his $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus he received for beating Alex Oliveira via second-round TKO at UFC 272 on March 5.

The camera cuts to “Trailblazer” receiving the news that he’s fighting Means in June, who he calls “Big Bird.” Holland then notices someone dressed up as Sesame Street’s Big Bird. Trailblazer chokes him out and then proceeds to dump the bird into a trash can.

The video ends with Holland snapping out of a daydream. Watch below via the Twitter embed:
