Conor McGregor’s legion of global fans will have you believing that outside of that one time against Nate Diaz, he’s been the terminator reborn in the UFC’s octagon. However, another fighter that had mild success against the mega star was Max Holloway.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion Max “Blessed” Holloway added another victory to his lengthy winning streak at UFC 218. The fighter defended his featherweight title in an entertaining rematch with former champion Jose Aldo in the night’s main event.
Now, Max Holloway is sitting tall on an twelve fight winning streak within the mixed martial arts promotion. The last time the champion lost a match was against reigning lightweight champion Conor McGregor, but he hasn’t slowed down since.
