Holloway Bashes Aldo’s Dreams: That First Time I Was Holding Back A Little Bit

 

 

Max Holloway managed to successfully defend his title last night. He repeated the performance from the last Aldo match and got another W to his name via TKo at 4:51 of round 3.

 “I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. You’ve got to respect the man,” Holloway said in his post-fight interview at UFC 218. “The man’s got all the numbers. I gotta catch up on the title defenses and then maybe we can talk about it.”

“I just had to be myself. That first fight I was holding back a little bit,” Holloway said on Fox Sports 1. “This one I let myself go a little faster. It showed. He took this fight on short notice. He got tired the fist fight on a full camp. What do you think was going to happen the second time?”

Here’s how mmafighting recapped the conclusion of the match:

 Holloway alternating between the head and the body, just brutalizing Aldo against the fence. Aldo lands counter-punches, but Holloway is shaking it off. They’re trading now. Holloway gets the advantage and he’s bouncing fists off of Aldo’s head as the two-time champ tries to turtle up. Aldo shoots in and Holloway sprawls to end up on top. Ground-and-pound from Holloway as Aldo gives up his back. 30 seconds left and Holloway is drilling Aldo with ground-and-pound. Dean has seen enough and he calls it off. Holloway finishes Aldo in Round 3 for the second straight time.
