    People saying he looks bad but he’s a naturally lean guy, prob weighs about 165-168lbs on fight night so dropping 10-15 lbs is gonig to look worse on him than someone who’s more chunky.

    I won't stop being skeptical till he actually makes it to the cage tomorrow. Anything can happen between now and then if the CTE issues he was dealing with are lingering.

    BTW - I could have been hearing things but didn't he say he was dealing with undiagnosed depression and was not aware he had it. That could be some of the CTE symptoms or the cause of his odd (in the sense they are unsure what caused his odd behaviour before the Khabby fight) issues.

    That said, if he is healthy I think he'll school the living hell outta Ortega and stop him in the 4th - Ortega's size will help him survive but Max's skills and ability to adapt should pull this off for him (provided he is as close to 100% as is possible for him).

    Think Uncle Dana won't let Max fight @145lbs anymore after this fight. 155lb Max should be exciting to watch tho

    Holloway has never ever missed weight. He is skinny in person. I don't know where this nonsense comes from that he is too big lol

    Because if you look at his 212 & 218 weigh ins he looks basically dead

    See his UFC 218 weight cut if you think this is his worst cut.He definitely looked better here than he did at UFC 218.

    Bout tree fiddy. But that won’t happen.

    Max is scared off Ortega. Last time they were scheduled to fight he was shaking his head so fast saying he had blurry vision.

    He pulled all the cards to not Ortega

    You must have not been around then, I was literally attempting to diffuse this narrative left and right personally. Biggest waste of my life ever. This place is a cesspool at times.

    Max Halloway makes me sick...I hate his personality, his stupid smirk and his periodically screaming like a retard.

    Ortega looked worse, if Max is forced to move up I fail to see why Ortega shouldn't be the same. Ortega clearly cuts more weight than Max.

    Both looked pretty bad to be fair but if they can still rehydrate and perform well that's all that matters come fight night, I still wish something could be done about these weight cuts.I wish they would weigh them before they step into the octagon, have a scale literally at the cage door so the crowd and everybody watching can see, at least the weight bullies would get exposed publicly, Nobody wants the stigma of being known as a weight bully.

    Grats on doing his job.... Must've been hard for him to do something he was supposed to for once.

    Compared to his last fight, he looked good at this weigh in lol. Last time he looked like they were forcing him to stand straight after they tortured him with starvation.
