Max Holloway comes to the UFC with an unblemished 4-0 record and at only 20 years of age, already one of the youngest competitors in the Octagon

Holloway becomes Poirier’s third opponent over just a matter of weeks. Erik Koch was originally slated to face Poirier, and after injury struck it was Ricardo Lamas.

On paper, perhaps, but I guarantee it will still be a tremendous card.

MMA fans are soooo fickle.

Not to mention this fight isnt in Montreal, its in Vegas I believe. He's thinking of UFC 145.

Definately a HUGE step down for Poirer though. Would have loved to see the Korean Zombie rise up for the fight

Pretty disappointed. 5 week notice and ufc comes up with a newbie. No zombie. They could have plugged in ross rearson. And this fight is gonna take up a spot on the main card
