    Fast forward he’s now had 17 fights in the UFC with an 18-3 record and currently on an unprecedented 11 fight win streak.

    He debuted with a 4-0 record against an established Dustin Poirier, who had to take him down and submit him.

    The other losses was one by a questionable decision to Dennis Bermudez and of course the 3rd loss fighting Conor McGregor at the tender age of 21 years old where he broke his foot and also forced Conor to shoot on him.

    This kid had it at the age of 19. He’s only 25 now. You honestly gotta stop for a second and wrap your head around what this kid is doing.

    Gotta give the young prodigy his props.

    He's a beast and such a down to earth dude
    Honestly don't mean this as a knock because he's probably way smarter than me but he always comes across as dumb and lovable

    Genuinely didn't think he would amount to much back when he got started

    I remember his debut against Poirier! He was getting the better of him on the feet before getting taken down. Feels like not long ago he debuted.

    The crazy thing about Max is that he's only 26 or something yet he's wiped out the top guys in his division.

    I'm rooting for aldo in the rematch but Holloway has proven to be a beast. He's young and big too. If he keeps it up maybe we'll see him make waves at lw too

    He's no Aldo, who became FW champ at the tender age of 23, youngest in Zuffa history, but has all the markings of a future GOAT imo. He'd starch Bermudez, Poirier and McGregor today, no doubt.

    Sure friend. Holloway looked like he had nothing for Aldo in the 1st. Aldo got wrecked after gassing out. Aldo had a tendency to slow down as fights went to the championship rounds but this time he became a zombie. If he is too old and his gas tank failed him again, the result will be the same but if that was a one off thing, he kills Holloway.
