Max Holloway is unquestionably one of the hottest fighters in mixed martial arts (MMA) today.
"Blessed" earned his sixth straight victory last night (Sat., April 18, 2015) with an incredible performance over Cub Swanson on the main card of UFC on FOX 15, which took place inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
After beating Swanson at his own game for the majority of three rounds, Holloway put "Killer" Cub away with a highlight-reel guillotine choke late in the fight. It was the second straight submission loss for Swanson following a six-fight winning streak.
Although many fight fans were high on the Hawaiian coming into UFC on FOX 15, there were some questions as to whether or not Holloway could compete with the division's top five, and after submitting the No. 5 ranked featherweight, it probably won't be too long before "Blessed" is fighting for UFC gold.
At only 23 years old, Holloway is improving leaps and bounds each and every time he steps into the Octagon. Just think that the streaking Hawaiian probably hasn't even hit his prime fighting years yet.
Scary thought; Especially for the top-half of the UFC's featherweight division.
