    It is what it is.


    Congrats to Dustin, smashed Max to pieces.

    Now Max can go back down to fight manlets.

    Max is a fantastic fighter at featherweight, but he's not 1 of the best pound for pound. I think a lot of the top 10 lightweights can beat Max. Max does have an incredible chin & cardio though, so he would probably just take tons of damage at LW, his fighting style is bad for his long-term health for sure.

    I'm worried if he has to fight Volkanovski next. Volkanovski hits like a truck and he'll be the best wrestler that max has faced in a long ass time.

    Lol, ok buddeh, they all cut weight, there is a reason Dustin is at 155 and not 145 anymore, he was the bigger guy, his punches were clearly a class up.

    Your hero has been hospitalized multiple times because he couldn't cut to 155.

    Poirer said he's having trouble making 155 now so does he do the same?

    Am I missing something, or was Dustin Poirier - who has fought numerous times at 145 - not clearly MUCH bigger than Max Holloway?

    Doesn't check out - shit claim

  20. khabib average reach/frame for lightweight. most people have longer reach and are taller than khabib. conor/max strived at fighting shorter people with shorter reach. once that changed they got exposed. khabib had the shorter reach in most of his fights.
