At UFC 300, an event scheduled to take place on April 13, in Las Vegas (USA), Max Holloway has an extremely important commitment. The company’s former featherweight (66 kg) champion will move up to lightweight (70 kg) to face Justin Gaethje, in a fight valid for the ‘BMF’ (toughest fighter) belt. However, anyone who thinks that ‘Blessed’ is afraid of acting in a category he is not used to is mistaken.

On his official ‘YouTube’ channel, Holloway is excited about the new challenge in his career. In 2019, the Hawaiian had the chance to win the interim lightweight belt, but was unable to deal with the strength and skill of Dustin Poirier, being defeated by a triple 49-46. Now, ‘Blessed’ will face Gaethje, who is also a renowned fighter, the strongest, most powerful and natural in the division, however, as he is visibly ‘full-bodied’ and better prepared than the previous time, he guarantees that he will be able to change his record in it. .

“Everyone keeps bringing up the Poirier fight at lightweight. It is what it is, no excuses. I only had six weeks for that camp. (Now) I feel strong, great and I can’t wait to get out there and prove it. Do you want to see the difference? Stay tuned, April 13th. You will see the difference. I see some minds exploding“, declared the former UFC champion.
