    Can he take him down? Probably.

    The question is can he keep him there for any length of time?

    I don't doubt that he can take Max down. Will that be enough to win that fight? Hopefully we get to find out.

    Holloway's bottom game should be on point for this fight. If it's same as before when he was getting mounted by Conor, well, he is in for a long night.

    Frankie recently got pieced up by Aldo and had a ton of trouble with Jeremy Stephens. Holloway smashed Aldo and cruised against Stephens.

    Do you people who keep bringing up the Conor fight really think that the guy who was two fights removed from getting a gift decision over Leonard Garcia is the same as the guy who just destroyed Aldo twice?

    I can't believe how pumped this video got me for max vs frankie. I was sort of interested in seeing Ortega vs max after his performance against cub, but damn now I'm back to wanting to see max v frankie. Will be the hardest fight to pick a winner just because I like both so much.

    Sort of want to see edgar join the list of people to win belts in 2 weight classes- really can't ever count him out either.

    lost to gray- avenged
    lost to benson- idc what anyone says he won the rematch
    lost to aldo x 2- no shame there, aldo is OG

    but then max is so damn cool - been really awesome to see his growth. I remember his debut against poirer- he came in like a wild man, he seriously fought like he didn't give a fuck. it didn't work out for him in that particular fight but I've been a fan ever since.

    Would you rather watch Twinkle Toes Trigg (new referee) ?

    I think Edgar is gonna take him down.

    In the Aldo fight, did you guys see how easily Aldo shoved Max to the ground at one point when they were in the clinch? And he didn´t even try that hard. Max is a great fighter but not very phisically strong. And it takes godly tdd like Aldo's to stop Edgar´s takedowns. And even there Edgar got a few td, just wasn´t able to keep Aldo there.

    I can see Frankie taking Max down and getting him to wilt under relentless pressure. Conversely, I can also see Max sprawling and brawling and catching Frankie with punishing knees anytime he gets in close. I want Frankie to win but time isn't on his side.
