Max Holloway (born December 4, 1991) is a mixed martial artist (MMA) from Waianae, Hawaii currently competing in the Featherweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) where he is the undisputed Featherweight Champion. As of September 2017, Holloway is the #4 ranked UFC pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
“It means a lot because I come from a little town on Oahu that is basically looked down upon. We are seen as the punks and troublemakers of the island. It just feels so good to make it when people are looking at you thinking there is no way I can. This also was a dream since I first started fighting. I’m 20 and living my dream doing what I love to do. It’s just hard to explain how I feel because I can’t put it in words.” Holloway said when asked how it felt to be signed by the UFC.
