Max’s fighting style and talent earned him comparisons with former UFC fighting star, Anthony Pettis. In the 2012 World MMA Scouting Report, Max was rated number 7 in the featherweight division.

By the time Max Holloway made his debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2012, he was the youngest fighter on the UFC roster. His first fight was against Dustin Poirier, and he lost via submission in the first round. It would be his only loss in his debut year. At the end of 2012, Holloway fought a handful of times and emerged the winner. His skill and talent from the scouting report were proving to be right.

Between 2013 and 2014, Holloway fought five times, and won three of them, winning the Performance of the Night award for his fight against Akira Corassani. His losses between 2013-2014 came against UFC superstar, Connor Mcgregor and Dennis Bermudez in 2013. Holloway lost the fight against Connor McGregor via unanimous decision and lost against Dennis via a controversial split decision.

With the failures he suffered in 2013, Max came back better and stronger.

In 2017, Holloway in a title unification fight on June 3, 2017, fought Jose Aldo. Holloway also won the match via TKO and earned his first Fight of the Night award.

Holloway hasn’t been able to maintain his fighting consistency in 2018, pulling out of three different fights due to injuries. He is however expected to fight in UFC 231 in Toronto, Canada against Brain Ortega on December 8, 2018.
