Max Holloway vs. Dustin Tips UFC & Poirier Odds 236
What is there to say about Max Holloway who has not already been stated? At only 27 years old, Holloway is currently making his case for the title of greatest featherweight of all time with two dominant wins over Jose Aldo at 2017.
Now, Holloway has his sights set on the title of greatest pound-for-pound fighter and is going around 155 pounds to become only the fourth double champion in UFC history.
Holloway’s sport is all about pace and pressure. He sets among the highest paces from the featherweight division, throwing about 15 strikes per minute and burying competitions under his persistent volume.
Even when a fighter can find the better of him early on, as Aldo failed in both of their fights, few are able to remain blow for blow with Holloway as the fight drags to the third, fourth and fifth rounds.
In many respects, Poirier is similar. “The Diamond” also works at a high pace, with mix striking. The two differ though is that while Max has electricity and can hurt opponents, his finishes usually arrive as a result of injury.
Poirier, in contrast, is among the single hardest blow-for-blow punchers in the lightweight division. He does not have to land many strikes to hurt an opponent as his litany of UFC wins shows. Poirier is a more ready grappler compared to Holloway.
