Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier Odds & Tips UFC 236
What’s there to say? At just 27 years old, Holloway is currently making his case for the title of greatest featherweight of all time with just two dominant wins on Jose Aldo at 2017.
Now, Holloway has his sights set on the title of greatest pound-for-pound fighter and is moving around 155 pounds to become only the fourth dual champion in UFC history.
Holloway’s sport is all about pressure and pace. He places among the greatest paces in the featherweight division, throwing about 15 strikes every second and hammering competitions under his relentless volume.
Even if a fighter can get the better of him early , as Aldo failed in both of their fights, few can stay blow for blow with Holloway as the struggle drags to the third, fourth and fifth rounds.
In most respects, Poirier is similar. “The Diamond” also functions at a high pace, with mix striking. The two differ though is that while Max has power and can damage opponents, his endings usually come as a result of injury.
Poirier, in contrast, is one of the only hardest blow-for-blow punchers in the lightweight division. He does not need to land many strikes to harm an opponent as his litany of UFC wins reveals. Poirier is a grappler than Holloway.
