Max Holloway is very much your UFC featherweight champion.
The 25-year old Hawaiian finished Jose Aldo for the second time in Detroit, Michigan to defend his title, finishing the Brazilian in the third round. The win likely represents a new era at 145-pounds, the division over which Aldo reigned supreme for so long.
As usual, the duo’s colleagues and fellow fighters were watching and enjoying the violence. Check out some of their reactions below.
Max is so good. And so Big. Such great cardio. Max is the man!!!!!
