Conor McGregor vs Max Holloway
Max "The Blessed" Holloway stepped inside the Octagon with "The Notorious" Conor McGregor at UFC Fight Night 26 in 2012. The fight was billed as a swashbuckling encounter between two upcoming and superbly talented strikers in the featherweight division. The fight did not go according to plan for Max as the charismatic Irishman eventually got the better of Holloway in the three round bout, defeating him via decision.
Max Holloway vs Jose Aldo 1
A UFC featherweight championship bout between former champion Jose Aldo and Max Holloway served as the main event at UFC 212 held in Aldo's hometown Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 3rd June 2017. Aldo was the champion getting into the fight while Holloway held the interim title. Holloway went on to silence Aldo's hometown crowd by picking up a comprehensive victory over the former champion, and unifying the featherweight titles.
Max Holloway vs Jose Aldo 2
Holloway and Aldo met each other within a year of their first bout at UFC 218 on 3rd December 2017 as the Brazilian looked to reclaim the title he lost in UFC 212. The second time was a much closer affair than the first as Aldo put up a valiant effort, fighting Max way more tactically than he had in their previous bout. However, Holloway never stepped off the accelerator as he kept shooting at Aldo throughout the five rounds, picking up a decision victory at the end of an enthralling contest. With the win, Max cemented himself as one of the best fighters in the game after this bout, managing to beat Jose Aldo twice in the same year.
Max Holloway vs Brian Ortega
Defending the featherweight title, Holloway faced Brian Ortega at UFC 231 in Scotiabank Arena, Toronto in a violent and bloody contest as Holloway laid a proper beat down on Ortega over four rounds in a main event bout regarded as one of the best fights of 2018. Ortega was so badly hurt that the doctors did not allow Ortega to come out for the fifth round. In the post fight interview, Max claimed that he is the best featherweight champion in the history of the sport.
