Conor McGregor Thinks Max Holloway Is Not Greater Than Him!

Conor McGregor Claims He Is The Real Featherweight King!

Max Holloway defeated Brian Ortega via doctor stoppage at the end of the fourth round. “Blessed” dominated T-City, delivering outstanding punch combos in the style of Muhammad Ali. Many fans and professional fighters called him the best Featherweight competitor ever. Holloway is only 27 years old!

Jose Aldo is the only man who defended UFC Featherweight title more times than Max Holloway, with the score of 7. His title reign was stopped at UFC 194 when he was defeated by Conor McGregor via left-cross KO.

Dillon Danis posted a Twitter status. He claims Max is not the best Featherweight fighter since people forgot Conor McGregor, who earned victories over Max Holloway, Jose Aldo, and Chad Mendes.

they do Conor dirty by saying max is the best FW ever… Conor is, he beat porier, aldo, mendez AND max and more

Max Holloway and Conor McGregor fought at UFC Fight Night 26, on August 17, 2013. Irishman earned a dominant unanimous decision victory over the Hawaiian (30-27, 30-27, 30-26). But Holloway is the first guy who survived Conor’s brutal punches until the final bell!

Max Holloway broke many records in the match versus Brian Ortega. Holloway is officially the man with the most significant strikes landed in the history of UFC, with the score of 1,627! Don’t forget the Hawaiian had only 19 UFC matches, with a promotional debut on February 4, 2012.

Official: Max Holloway’s 290 significant strikes landed at #UFC231 are a new single-fight UFC record. More figures to come.

MORE: Holloway (290) and Ortega (110) combine for 400 significant strikes landed, a new single-fight UFC record. The previous record belonged to Diaz vs. Cerrone at UFC 141 (334). #UFC231

AND LASTLY: Holloway has passed Michael Bisping (1,567) and Frankie Edgar (1,463) for the greatest tally of significant strikes landed in UFC history with 1,627. #UFC231

Before a dominant win over Brian Ortega, Max Holloway earned two victories over Jose Aldo, and became the only man who defeated “Scarface” twice.

Conor McGregor believes Max Holloway is not greater than him, despite all the stats!!! You can read his thoughts below.

Let’s make a brief comparison. Max Holloway defeated Jose Aldo two times while “Mystic Mac” did it only once. The Hawaiian defended UFC Featherweight title twice, while Conor didn’t defend the belt.

And when you look at a UFC record book, Conor is the owner of the fastest Featherweight fight and title shot KO (UFC 194, 13 seconds). He is ranked all-time third for highest number of significant strikes landed per minute, with the score of 5.82 (Holloway is 5th, with the score 5.67). McGregor is also on the 1st place for most Performance of the Night bonuses – 6.

Max Holloway is on the second place for the UFC longest winning streak (13). He is also the fighter with the most UFC Featherweight fights (17, 16 wins and 1 loss). “Blessed” is the best for most Featherweight finishes too (9). Add three records mentioned above – everything looks clear, right?

It looks like Max Holloway leads on the scorecards. What are your thoughts on this? Is Max Holloway a better Featherweight fighter than Conor McGregor?
