    Mods add a poll please.
    Yair has got some pretty good hands and has some good wins. Max obviously has beaten everyone decisively in the division besides the current champ.

    The only way I can see Yair beating him is utilizing his narrow reach advantage to keep max at a distance. I don’t think he can do it, but I also thought KZ would embarrass Ortega. So what do I know?
    What do you think Sherbros?

    Nope

    Too hittable
    Gets sloppy in later rounds

    Max styles on him all night but it will be a decision win not a finish

    Of course he can . but he probably wouldnt . I could see Yairs unorthodox striking from a distance messing with Holloways suffocating boxing style . Again though just saying he could win but id absolutely bet on Holloway

    He can, but he'd be a massive underdog, imo.

    Of course. It's a fight. I don't think it's likely though.

    He can, but I don't think he will.

    He would have to outstrike him for 5 rounds, as he's not cracking that formidable chin.
    And it would have to be measured, so he doesn't punch himself out before the last 2 rounds, as that is when Holloway is at his strongest.
    Unlikely but not impossible.

    He has a lot of knockout power. Max better not try his taunting shit until he has him properly worn out.

    Hell no, Yair would fold in the 3rd.

    While hes still fresh he has to land something like a big headkick on Max, thats the only chance I give him

    Anything can happen in an MMA fight but I suspect it's very unlikely.

    His only chance is to land some wild shit out of nowhere that cracks Maxs chin
