He has a very technical and aggressive style and is very effective off his back. Held has a dangerous top game as well. His stand-up game[einset][/einset] is very controlled and technical, although not very explosive.
We’ll be watching Held facing Juha-Pekka Vainikainen (11-5) on November 6th. Vainikainen is coming off of a loss to Maciej Polok, who defeated him by triangle choke. Held, on the other hand, is on a two-fight winning streak. Both fighters are very well-rounded, so it should be an exciting matchup.
