Max Holloway ain’t nothing to fuck with

You think the UFC will stop sending its top men’s featherweight prospects to Max Holloway? Because so far when they do, all they get back is a box of bones. Holloway continued his up-and-comer ass-whipping tour on Saturday, dispatching Arnold Allen via unanimous decision in the pair’s UFC Fight Night main event. This fight was 95 percent Holloway stylin’ on Allen with his speed, pressure game and counter-punches and five percent Holloway eating Allen’s hardest shots and walking right through them like a man out on a Sunday stroll. So, your basic Max Holloway shit, in other words.

Plus, Nate Diaz is gonna fight Jake Paul in a boxing match at 185 pounds. What could go wrong? And Jon Jones teased us with retirement, while the UFC lines up a potential No. 1 contender fight between Sergei Pavlovich and Curtis Blaydes.
