Neither fighter seems to have KO power.
Will this fight end in a decision?
Joseph by flying knee
Max has Christmas and other family obligations to attend to. I think Aldo will fight someone else in February.
Lol. I hope they hurry up and get this over with. I want to see Aldo vs Mcgregor II
Aldo's chin is cracked. You could see it in the Mendes and McGregor fight.
I think Max KO's him.
Aldo by decision, if not that Max by TKO punches
I just want that division to have an actual champ. Right now there are three. All basically undeserving.
I gotta go with Aldo even though Max has looked beastly.
You mean Maximilian Holloway
Both can KO each other. The lack of KO power is a myth.
i dont think max has the one shot ko power to put away jose. could see tko in the championship rounds with max putting on a flurry on gassed aldo
Not a myth. Max doesn't hit hard just often and well placed
He is positively scawny and throws with minimum commitment.
He has two KO's in his record, and 4 TKO's (one being an injury by Oliveira). A well placed punch or kick with the opponents head moving in the wrong direction can KO any fighter.
It's largely a myth fans like to attach to fighters. Some do have better skill, timing and power to KO opponents (Rumble, Conor, etc), but most fighters can KO an opponent.
I'm not saying Max can't hit hard enough to KO someone.
Simply that for a FW he really doesn't hit very hard... Volume and placement is how he gets guys.
But he doesn't have that "KO power" in the sense most people mean.
Like its unlikely he just pops a punch through the gloves and flatlines somebody.
Max holiday have how many KOs in his career?
What about the Frankie fight?
wheres the date mothephucka?
It's very rare someone pops a punch through the gloves and flatlines the opponent. Most KOs have power and placement behind them. Even a master KO artist has a hard time pulling it off on a well-defended opponent.
Of course, I agree and know what you mean: neither invest in powerful killer shots. Even Ali wasn't really a one-punch KO fighter, he usually worked his way to get the fighter to a situation he could finish them. Foreman carried a more powerful punch and had a different approach.
In any case: it will most likely be a decision.
