Since losing to Conor McGregor in August of 2013, Max Holloway has won 10 fights in a row, culminating in his interim title victory at UFC 206 last weekend.
The Hawaiian born fighter is now viewed as one of the gifted talents in the UFC with some even suggesting that he could go on to become an all time great, should he continue on his current trajectory.
At just 25 years of age, Holloway looks destined to become the UFC’s featherweight champion and, given the fact that he is still to peak as a fighter, he may well dominate the division for many years to come.
After disposing of Anthony Pettis with relative ease on Saturday night, ‘Blessed’ was quick to call out Jose Aldo, a man whose reputation in the world of MMA seems to be worsening by the day.
Where’s Jose Waldo? Let me know when you find him…. That motherf****r is always getting hurt and pulling out, it might as well have been the real belt,” Holloway said about Aldo.
“Most true fans know the story. Conor’s coach even said I’m the best 145’er in the world and then Jose’s over here saying he wants to retire, unretire, then he gets the belt, now he has the belt, now he wants to go up a weight class instead of fight so, I don’t know.
“Most true fans know the story and most true fans said this should have been for the real belt.”
However, after business was all taken care of, Holloway showed his human side in a heartwarming exchange with his son backstage.
‘I won the golden belt bra!’
