Better Know a Fighter: Max Holloway

Max Holloway highlights, compiled by SideBang Enterprises. By the way, you may want to watch this one without volume. You’re welcome in advance.

If you’ve been paying attention, the name Max Holloway should be familiar to you. If you haven’t, put on that dunce cap and write “Holloway is stepping in for an injured Ricardo Lamas to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC on Fox 2” twenty times on the chalk board. That’ll teach you.

While Poirier is a tough draw, especially for a guy making his UFC debut, Holloway is no slouch himself, despite only having four professional fights to his credit. Here’s what you need to know about “the other Lil Evil”, Max Holloway:

-Holloway is a twenty year old Hawaiian prospect who has compiled a 4-0 professional record. Three of his four victories have come via decision, with his sole stoppage being a first round knockout against then 12-17 Bryson Kamaka in 2010.

-Don’t let the lack of stoppages fool you into thinking Holloway is a boring fighter. Known for his unorthodox striking and exceptional conditioning, Lil Evil blitzes opponents early and often. And despite being six feet tall, Max Holloway prefers to stay in the pocket against opponents.

-Holloway’s fighting style has drawn a lot of comparisons to former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. So many that Jeremy Stephens actually recruited Max Holloway to help him prepare for his bout with Pettis at UFC 136.

-In March 2011, Holloway won the X-1 lightweight championship with a split decision victory over WEC/Strikeforce veteran Harris Sarmiento. It was only his third fight as a professional.

-His most recent fight was a decision victory over then 3-5 Eddie Rincon on July 1, 2011.

It's rreeeeallllyyyy hard to get behind a guy who uses Rihanna as the music for his video. And by hard I mean its tough to put your hands on his slim hips because he's so into the music.

Seriously??? fuck this guy... this guy is SkankForce material... B Class cut... he's unorthodox as a fucking gypsy's vagina but he's just as sloppy as well... anyone in the lightweight division can dice this kid up... Poirier will just prove this... you can be a fancy fucking fruitcake all year round... but when judgement day comes... you're just a tooth fairy fucking light weight...

He's not the only fighter that shares a nickname with with another fighter...Anderson silva and kendell Grove for example...they share the nickname spider...although Holloway may not be well known YET!!! Believe me he'll establish a big name for him self GUARANTEE...mark my words and stay tuned people...#GODisGOOD

I'm Female, 26, and just this Christmas had a brief encounter with a man. It was wonderful. We met via internet dating on this site: ---onenightcupid.c0m---a good way to meet like-minded people, and he actually approached me first.We had an amazing day and later on he joined me at a hotel. It was like a fantasy come true. Amazing company, amazing sex too and a really warm and loving man.

Looks to like a good prospect to send into Stockton. He would fit in the Dirtweed Diaz bros.
As for the LIL Evil moniker, someone needs to be first to ask him where it came from? You know, like first as in actually doing some first hand reporting!
Hyperlinks and rehashes are fine, but they are for kids.

So we saw the elbow uppercut and the showtime kick attempted. He seems like a very exciting fighter...although he should know that the "H" is not silent when it comes after a "T"

Not that this reflects on him at all as a fighter, but why would you take a nickname that is obviously synonymous with another very well-known fighter.

Being compared to Anthony Pettis in my book is a pretty serious compliment. Well deserved too, the kid looks great in these vids. Now I'll go do my chalkboard writing.
