Max Holloway vs Dustin Poirier
Holloway (-205) is looking to expand his 13-fight winning series in his new branch as he moves upward from featherweight to lightweight. During the series, 10 fights were endings, nine by knockout and one by entry. All in all, the Hawaii native has a list of 20-3 with 10 wins coming by knockout.
The 27-year-old is the definition of a brawler, getting in his opponents’ faces and placing on a pace that is unmatched in the UFC. Holloway has incredible hand speed and continuously peppers his foes with strikes till they wilt under his stress. Blessed averages 6.9 significant strikes per minute, and it has landed 100 or more substantial strikes in four of his last five fights, including 307 against Brian Ortega at UFC 231.
Poirier (+165) has finally earned his title fight after eight years at the UFC, where he’s a 16-4-1 record, and is unbeaten in his last five bits. The Louisiana native has been close to title struggles but would seemingly always lose to prospective challengers. After three straight knockout wins, even though, he’s set himself in line for the interim lightweight strap.
Much like his counterpart, the Diamond loves to get into crazy, high-octane scraps. The 30-year-old is a really technically sound striker, rarely putting himself in much risk by keeping his guard high, and contains good footwork when landing an average of 5.59 considerable strikes per minute. In addition, he does possess a wrestling pedigree also and averages 1.75 takedowns a 15 minutes, but typically he keeps the conflicts standing.
It’s unfortunate we must wait until the end of the card to watch this possible war but it’ll be worth it. Holloway absorbs strikes but only walks right through the cries and seems totally unfazed while he swarms his foes till they crumble. Meanwhile, Poirier is likely better but I do not know if he will have the ability to create much distance for some living space. Poirier conquer Holloway in Blessed’s Octagon debut in 2012 by first-round entry. I expect a different result this time around.
