UFC's Max Holloway MMA Stats & Records, Net Worth, Wife, Facts
Max Holloway is a mixed martial artist who fights in the UFC.
The MMA fighter started his fighting journey after graduating from Waianae High School in 2010, where he first started learning kickboxing. But, his professional MMA debut came on 11th September 2010 in the X-1: Heroes where Max won his debut fight against Duke Saragosa through a unanimous decision.
Since then, Max, who is learned in various martial arts such as kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu, and Muay Thai, has made a name in the MMA scene while fighting under the UFC brand. A tough opponent for anyone, he has fought 26 matchups, which include fights against artists such as Conor McGregor, Jose Aldo, and Dustin Poirier.
MMA Stats: Fights And Records
As we are on the subject of Max’s MMA career, let’s know it in a little more detail. As mentioned above, Max started his professional fighting career against Duke Saragosa and won the fight inside three rounds.
Max went on a four-game winning run since his debut - all of which occurred before his UFC career. He won the second match of his career with a Knock Out against Bryson Kamaka in the first round, a match which was held on 6th November 2010.

After four wins, Max decided to enter the UFC and was immediately matched up with an established fighter, Dustin Poirier. And this match turned out to be his first loss, as he submitted to an armbar submission move from Dustin in the first round.
Max bounced back from the upset in his first UFC game and won three back-to-back games. Unfortunately, his short winning run came to an end against Dennis Bermudez on 25th May 2013. Following that match, he again lost to legendary fighter Conor McGregor on 17th August 2013.
Two consecutive losses probably filled him with so much motivation that he managed to finish his opponent, Will Chope with a knockout, following the match against Conor. This win, which came on 4th January 2014, initiated his 13-match unbeaten run.
However, Max’s amazing run of wins came to an end on 14th April 2019 when he lost his Lightweight title to Dustin Poirier. The loss came after a five-round match decided by unanimous decision.
But Max qualified for another title match, this time against Frankie Edgar, for the Featherweight title. The match took place on 28th July 2019, and Max won the title, again with a unanimous decision on his favor this time around.
