Prediction: Holloway  |  Decision

Extremely compelling match-up, even if I wanted Frankie to get his shot.

They don't come much better or more interesting than this; two new breed killers in their prime who both have the tools to finish one another.It's very hard to imagine what this fight will look like.

I have no idea how it will play out. Will Ortega be able to breach the distance and stand with Max inside? Will Holloway, who was taken down by Mcgregor, but who fended off Aldo's takedown attempts, be able to keep it standing? Will Ortega be able to match Holloways pace, Can he match his cardio? If Holloway winds ip on the bottom on a bad position will he be able to defend the choke? How good is Ortega's chin and can it stand up to Max's volume? Can Max recover if he eats something heavy from Ortega?

I've no idea, and I don't really know to guess.All I can be sure of is that this fight is as premium as it gets. These guys are the bleeding edge of MMA. There are wins, and there are wins.This  aint no Justino Guppy feed.The glory that awaits the Victor will be beyond question, indisputable.

Man, what a fight.

Holloway by beautiful destruction. I don't think Ortega will be able to get a hold of Max or pressure him effectively enough to get off takedowns or land a shot that drops him. Could see the volume and pace becoming an issue in a 5 rounder, especially with those digging body shots. I think Max wins by mid to late TKO. He just has much better foot work that even if he doesn't get the finish I see no problem in him dancing around Ortega all night.
