Who is Alessa Quizon, UFC Fighter Max Holloway’s Girlfriend and Fiancee?

Alessa Quizon is an athlete, a professional surfer known to many as the special woman in the life of Max Holloway. While you may not have heard anything about Alessa until now, you should know a thing or two about Max, especially if you are a fan of combat sports. He is a professional mixed martial artist who competes in the featherweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Holloway has been fighting for a living since he was 19 years old. He made his UFC debut in 2012 as the youngest fighter on the promotion’s roster and hasn’t slowed down since then.

Holloway’s popularity spread across the globe in June 2017 when he defeated Jose Aldo to become the Featherweight Champion of the UFC. He went on to successfully defend the title three times before he was dethroned by Alexander Volkanovski in December 2019 at UFC 245. Perhaps not as much as he has strived to remain relevant as a mixed martial artist, Max has endeavored to have a steady love life. He was once married to Kaimana Pa’aluhi, the mother of his son – Rush Holloway, but the union only lasted for two years. They separated in 2014 and divorced in 2017. In early 2020, the fighter began dating Alessa Quizon to whom he’s now engaged.

As stated above, Alessa Quizon was born in Makaha, a town known and admired for its surfing waves and surfing history. Given that, it is only natural that Alessa has a thing for the water sport. Like her father Scott Quizon and her siblings, she grew up surfing. According to some reports, she started surfing when she was only seven years old. Three years later, she had started participating in local surfing competitions. Alessa got hooked and subsequently embraced surfing for a living.

Apart from being a professional surfer, Alessa is also a stuntwoman. She performed stunts in the 2011 American biographical drama film, Soul Surfer. The movie directed by Sean McNamara stars Anna Sophia Robb, Dennis Quaid, and Helen Hunt. It tells the story of Bethany Hamilton who conquered her fears and returned to surfing after a shark attack that claimed her left arm. As far as we know, being a professional surfer has been Alessa Quizon’s major source of income. It is through it that she acquired her wealth estimated at $200,000.

The Surfer Began Dating The UFC Fighter In February 2020 and They Got Engaged In November That Same Year

It has already been established above that Max Holloway was once married to Kaimana Pa’aluhi. The former child actress and model dated Max for many years before they got married on the 14th of February 2012. Their relationship produced a son named Rush Holloway before they parted ways in 2014 and ultimately divorced in 2017.

After their separation in 2014, Max dated a model named Moani Hara but nothing serious came out of that. Thereafter, much wasn’t heard about Max Holloway’s love life until February 2020 when it was confirmed that he is in a relationship with Alessa Quizon. Before he came along, Quizon dated Caio Ibelli who is also a professional surfer. They got engaged in 2019 but unceremoniously broke up for reasons that are not clear.

It is hard to tell how Max and Alessa Quizon met; the circumstances surrounding the beginning of their relationship have been quite a mystery. But the UFC fighter proposed in November 2020 and they became engaged. As far as the public knows, they are yet to walk down the aisle. However, Alessa now bears Max’s surname on Instagram. So it is possible they quietly got married. Since she changed her name, she has attracted more followers online. Below is a list of her social media pages and the number of followers she has as of October 2021:
