UFC featherweight Max Holloway is well aware of the attention his UFC Fight Night 26 opponent Conor McGregor is receiving going into their showdown Saturday night, but he has absolutely no problem with it.

Currently the youngest active fighter on the UFC roster, the 21-year-old Holloway (7-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) is soft-spoken and humble with a personality and lifestyle that is a far cry from his next opponent...

Holloway had trouble with Garcia. I can't see him beating McGregor.

i really like holloway, but mcgregor should be too much for him. i give holloway a chance if he makes it out of the first.
mcgregor throws almost only power shots, and he slips and uses angles like no other fighter i have seen in a while...not saying he is a talent like rory mcdonald or anything but his striking is very good
all aboard the hype train until he fights an elite wrestler ! lol

Conor by 1st round KO
<<<not biased at all

Holloway is definitely being overlooked in this fight though and while I expect Conor to take it I wouldn't be surprised if it's close.

I don't understand why Conor's such a favorite as he's only beaten one decent UFC calibre fighter in his career while Holloway's faced much tougher opposition. I wouldn't be surprised to see Holloway win this one and make Dana White cry.

Conner is a little overrated because he has done exciting things, just how it goes. I hope Max is able to give him a good fight and we have the chance to evaluate more of their overall game.

Max is young and tough. This is a tough fight though but I think it will be exciting no matter how short it is. Holloway is probably the most active striker in the division and he is either gonna play in to McGregors striking game or sock that dude in the face a bunch of times. Either way, I look forwards to their engagements while they last.

I'm still waiting for a fighter to come out and say something before the fight like: "I'm looking forward to seeing myself on my opponents Highlight reel getting KTFO'd"

Kinda like how I've been waiting for a Congressman to come out against more jobs in their district.

Get tired of hearing the same old obvious crap.
