Stepping into the Octagon against a fighting machine like Khabib Nurmagomedov on just six days notice without the benefit of a full fight camp might seem like the very defininition of insanity to some people, but not for Max Holloway.
"I want to fight guys people think I have no chance against," he explained. "The true number one pound-for-pound (fighter) is someone who is willing to fight anyone in any weight class. I have the opportunity to be the youngest double champ...who defended his belt. It's history. This is history."
