    Holloway had plans for a big 2018 but instead this year has proven to be one he’d rather forget. Holloway has had to withdraw from three fights in 2018, being pulled from a scheduled title defense against Brian Ortega on fight week due to concussion-like symptoms. Speaking with Good Show with Ben Ennis & JD Bunkisyesterday, Holloway discussed how these incidents affected him and his ensuing battle with depression.
    Now though, Holloway is physically feeling better and is currently scheduled to face Ortega at UFC 231 on December 8. Still his struggles with his health, both physical and mental, have left a lasting impression on the featherweight champion.

    Money don't make you happy, but I'd rather be crying my eyes out in a Mercedes, rather than some shitty Peugeot.

    And being happy or sad has fuck all to do with depression. Most Mercs are shite, I'd rather have the equivalent Audi or BMW.

    Killing yourself to make 145 ain't got shit to do with depression.
