Edging out Yair Rodriguez in a fight of the year contender, Max Holloway’s famed electric pace would allow him to get the better of his opponent over the full 25 minutes.
With Rodriguez opening up the contest with his trademark flashy style, Holloway would absorb a fair amount of damage early on, particularly to his lead leg.
As the enthralling bout continued on, however, Holloway’s pressure and high output would seemingly sap away at Rodriguez’s gas tank as the former champion secured takedowns to ensure rounds went in his favour.
