Max Holloway will tell you that he is blessed, which is hard to dispute given his status as incumbent UFC featherweight champion. However, it is clear that the 26-year-old fighter supports his luck with a range of skills.
Holloway has set a 19: 3 record in his seven-year career, making him one of the most successful fighters in his weight class. He has used a blend of technical mastery of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai and indisputable boasting to rise through the MMA ranks. Holloway is currently driving a series of 12 games, with his last defeat in 2013 more than five years ago.
Before Holloway defends his title at UFC 231 against Brian Ortega on Saturday, December 8, he stopped at Men's Health HQ Station, to show the first five moves he used in the Octagon to dominate opponents and rise to champion status.
