    I expect the same thing tonight. Holloway is underdog, people are underestimating his skills, another hype train will be derailed tonight.

    Is he still an underdog?

    I thought for sure the lines would shift after he nailed the weight-cut.

    He looks healthy and ready to go. I think he likely wins this pretty handily, unless Ortega pulls off something crazy, which can't be ruled out entirely imo.

    Odds right this second say Holloway is -110 to Ortega as +100, so he's not an underdog.

    Max might be my favorite champ

    People that are underestimating him won’t anymore if he wins big tonight. If he does he’s gonna move up in p4p

    Woodley obviously! He's been underdog all but one of his championship fights.
    Including against Till.

    This is a very close fight and no way should Holloway be a underdog. Thats stupid.

    The only question for me is Max's health, otherwise he seems like a lock.

    honest question: why is brian ortega so hyped?
    he finishes dudes with great just bleed god style but he's always getting his ass kicked in fights until he scores a comeback finish.

    plus he is a PED user

    Ortega is no joke but I think people are forgetting how good Max is
