Fighter on Fighter: Breaking down UFC 223’s Max Holloway

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight kingpin, Max Holloway, will step up on six-day notice to challenge unbeaten Dagestani smashing machine, Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0), this Saturday (April 7, 2018) at UFC 223 inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Ferguson’s injury may have reduced a great deal of mixed martial arts (MMA) fans to tears, but it created a vacuum for Max Holloway to step up and be a complete bad ass. The odds are against Holloway. He’ll be facing a larger and seemingly unstoppable brute of a wrestling specialist, one who has been preparing for Saturday night for months. The bright side here is that Holloway is undoubtedly one of the best conditioned and most skilled fighters in the world, so the potential for an upset should not be overlooked.

Let’s take a closer look at his skill set:
