    On his Wiki page it only says he is of Hawaiian and Samoan descent.Im pretty sure Holloway is not a Hawaiian or Samoan last name.Was he adopted or did they just not list all his ethnicities.Anyone know?

    He is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
    Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
    Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
    And a hundred percent reason to do the damn thing :p

    Don't care about his ethnic %'s.

    I just know that he is champ at 145 and has had a better career than Aldo.

    If you notice.. the top MMA fighters that claim to be of Asian/Hawaiian heritage are half white (Penn, Holloway, Machida) It's almost like pure Asian blood don't make it to the top

    He is definitely not Samoan. I am pretty sure they are born over 145lbs.

    Fun little fact: Muhammed Ali was actually part Irish.

    The Irish have the GOAT boxer and now the GOAT MMA fighter as well.

    Some people can be intrigued by ethnicities without getting all weird about it, but I get it - You're Soooooo Not Racist! Signal received!

    Being mixed makes sense. Rare body type for a pure Pacific Islander.

    definitely mixed but theres no way he's part hawaiian/samoan; the girls usually hit 145 lbs by the time they are 10 years old. if there is any, it got diluted with filipino genes
