We’re getting some UFC 196 vibes with UFC 223 this week. In this thought experiment, Max Holloway will play the role of Nate Diaz, while Khabib Nurmagomedov will wear Conor McGregor’s face like a Halloween mask.
The correct take going into this Saturday night in Brooklyn, New York is to have Max Holloway body Nurmagomedov on the feet, force the Russian to go for a tired takedown attempt and then have Blessed tap out his opponent with a rear naked choke. If this is the will of the Fight Gods, we are 100% on board with the plan.
Last month, Mad Max was asked a super-fight with Khabib in the future and he didn’t blink once. Bless up at UFC 223 and make some MMA history.
Fast forward to the 5:00 minute mark of the video to check out Max Holloway and predict what it is.
