    Does Aldo remember he has leg kicks that destroy people in this fight? It’s been far to long since he really used them. And it’s his best weapon

    I'm excited for the fight but I'm thinking it ends the same. I'm with Kevo if Aldo loses here I hope he goes to lightweight. I like Aldo but I want Max to win again. I really want to see Max and Frankie. I never heard what Frankie injured. Is he out long?

    If Holloway wins, he will have done something no one else has done and that's beat Aldo twice.

    He talked about the kicking game in the lead up to the first fight, but never followed through. This rematch is about altering that approach. He’s not going to outbox Max for five rounds.

    He has also abandoned his offensive wrestling

    Lame. I'd rather see them put Cub, Ortega, or Elkins in there.

    Father time is undefeated and Also while not being old, hes been in a few wars against top flight competition night in and night out, I'm not sure if he can maintain that killer instinct for ever. Max is just bigger younger and thats all it may take.

    I get that 100%.
    But a short notice fight.
    For a title he wants back.
    He knows he likely can't ride this out for a 5 rounder.
    Hoping he comes to finish and finish early.

    If I remember correctly he did outbox him for 2 rounds before he gassed. I'm hoping he kicks Holloway's legs off then to remind everyone about his devastating leg kicks and gets a finish.

    He'll also be only the second man in UFC history to defend the featherweight title.

    Maybe I need to watch it again but I remember the fight being very competitive in aggregate but because Aldo was winning early and then Max took over with pace even before he rocked him. Either way, it was a damn fun fight!

    I wondered if preparing for Frankie got him too focused on not kicking to avoid the wrestling. It was odd to see him abandon those; my dream is that he resumes them and Max has an answer- showing that he's the next era of FW.

    UFC champ Max Holloway wants to show he’s ‘the best’ by beating Aldo in back-to-back fights
