Holloway is getting fucked on this one. And Lamas is getting a huge break.

Max is getting fucked cause he's on a 8 fight win streak, that I agree with. This should be a good fight, but I think Max will take it.

Wow, never seen this coming!

Usually they don't do more than 13. I wonder if someone will be off the card? Maybe BJ Penn because of what's going in his personal life?

He's not really getting fucked unless you're talking about wrestle-fucked......which is a possibility, but Max's wrestling defense has improved a lot over the years. Lamas has been a consistent top 5-10 FW for the past what 8 years, ever since he came over from WEC basically. Has some solid wins on his record and in my eyes, one of hte most under rated fighters in all of MMA. Holloway has his work cut out for him in this one. Should be a fun scrap.

I'm assuming you are referring to Holloway not getting a Title shot. Problem there is you have 3 guys (Edgar, Aldo, and Holloway) that are all deserving. The only other option for Max is to sideline it until the Edgar vs Aldo and Conor situation unfolds. I think Max made the right call to stay active. A quality win over the game Lamas and I'd imagine Holloway's next fight will be for some sort of Title.

Agree about Lamas, he's about as well rounded as it gets, he doesn't get hit a lot either. I think this one will go to a split, hard to find a weakness in either's game right now besides Holloway being a little hungrier possibly
