Unpopular opinion

Max has taken so much damage in such a short span, Kattar's hands will be too precise and he will win. Yes I am a white belt but I made my account yesterday.

Holloway vs. Kattar
Max Holloway, DEC
Amazing boxing match between a pair of elites at the division. Kattar has clean hands. So does Max. Tough one to predict. I think Max has more tools up his sleeve, and his volume boxing will be the difference over 25 fun minutes.

Simón vs. Kelleher
Ricky Simón, DEC
Close fight on paper. This card is full of em. I think Simon will use his superior wrestling to get a 30-27 scorecards across the board. Gotta admire Kelleher's activity however.

Elliott vs. Espinosa
Tim Elliott, DEC
Tim is a great fighter. Has amazing takedowns and awkward striking that sometimes manages to work. He will beat Jordan with ease.

Ponzinibbio vs. Salikhov
Santiago Ponzinibbio, TKO, R3
FINALLY Santiago is back. Holy ****. Hope to see him make a statement against the rising prospect Muslim Salikhov.

Tafa vs. Felipe
Carlos Felipe, DEC
Carlos is a solid boxer who can put together good combos. Tafa is just a powerhouse. Felipe by decision or knockout.

Moras vs. Melo
Sarah Moras, SUB, R1
I'm sorry, but HOW the hell is Melo still in the UFC??? She is 0-3, and is sloppy and terrible in every area! She must be sleeping with someone. It doesn't matter. Sarah sucks also, but she knows how to take people down and submit them so she will win. Melo and Cifers may be the worst current women UFC fighters out there. BUT as bad as Hannah is, at least she lost to STIFF competition.

Soriano vs. Todorović
Duško Todorović, TKO, R2
First of all, who in the world nicknames themself 'story time'? This is an MMA nickname, not a class in preschool. Back to the fight. Picking Dusko.

Okay, for one of the first times I quite literally cannot choose between two fighters. So, Tapology, make your claim, who wins Calvin or Max? And why?

For me I know Max isn't going to wrestle or throw leg kicks. So, this is basically a K1 match with 4 oz gloves. And I cannot for the life of me decide who is the better of the two here.

I think Max is a better technical striker, Kattar lost to Moicano and Zabit and neither fight was too close and Kattar relies on his power more IMO.

@Tieoken it's a definitely a hard fight to think about. I'm not sure but my Gut is saying Kattar and I think this could look very much like the Poirier fight.Max does land a lot, but a lot of it isn't serious and he does get hit a lot too, his SAPM is 4.52.

Now, Kelvin's in higher than that and he also has low SLPM...but I don't think that's going to be the full story of the fight. This will probably come down to the judges and to put it simply I think Kattar is going to land the big **** that causes damage which will override the cumulative damage put out by Max. Holloway will probably get dropped or wobbled more than once. Kelvin hits really, really ******* hard and Max takes risks.

I just don't think anyone who wants to have a boxing match with Kelvin Kattar is going to have a fun night--even the great Max Holloway. Kelvin is a very good Boxer ( by MMA standards) and he's going to have 3 Inches of reach advantage. Max does have great conditioning but Kelvin gets better as the fight goes on.

Tldr: Holloway lands more but Kelvin lands the **** that matters for a UD. Or Max masterclasses him and has him hitting air all night.

I just think Max Holloway is a  more  versatile  fighter, If Max losses this it his own fault because the blueprint to beat Katter is just kick the **** out of his legs. I think if this  is mono v mono fist a kuft for 25 minute then it pretty 50 50. Doubt Holloway will be that stupid to do that and  he did beat Volk the secound time out. 


If you can't be bother to read, Holloway is an all time great for a reason and I don't think he passed it or if he did not by much

Taking Calvin Kattar by Dec. Its already been said and ill repeat it. Max Holloway has taken damage. Career changing damage. We see this with fighters many time, win or loose after the fight, where the war changes the course of their career. This is what happened to Tony Ferguson and has happened to Max Holloway. Kattar has less miles on his Engine and will outstrike the durable Max Holloway to decison.

@Xcon I don't necessarily believe that well see that come into fruition in this fight, but if anyone's gonna crack Holloway it probably would be Kattar. You could def be right

Gimme Kattar. Max almost always has a height and reach advantage that sets up his striking. Katter is bigger, is probably as fast (precision vs volume) but hits far harder.

And I know this is a hot take because Max is a fan favorite, but I didn't think either Volkanovski fight was a robbery. Both were really close fights where Volkanovski was landing more and doing more damage down the stretch both times.
