This was just minutes after I tore my ACL in a battle in Boston Massachusetts. It was when I dealt with off against the current featherweight champion Max Holloway, who I dismantled before and after this ligament tear, to win a lopsided success. It was dad against child in there that night in simply my 2nd UFC bout. Young Max is a hell of a fighter, I question what the future holds for my young Uce. Ligaments are needed in a fight definitely. Some can battle on however, where as some can not. I constantly believe there are moments in your profession that can make you or break you. I have had lots of in my storied career and this was most certainly one of them.

McGregor’& rsquo; s recent digs at Holloway on social media are probably a way to evaluate fan interest in a possible rematch, as the SBG Ireland standout states he has a few challengers in mind for his UFC return.Holloway, who trains out of Gracie Technics in Honolulu, recently took out of his scheduled featherweight title defense against Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 due to injury. Edgar, the previous lightweight titleholder, will now face leading competitor Brian Ortega in the new main event. The PPV happens next month, March 3 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
