UFC Holloway: “I’m a water fist?” Alan KO Commitment
Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway (31, USA) vowed to knock out 12-fight winning streak Arnold Allen (29, UK).
UFC featherweight ranking No. 2 Holloway will face No. 4 Arnold Allen in the UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Allen Main Event held at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri, USA on the 16th (Korean time).
Holloway was furious. Some fans accused Holloway of being a water fist. He said, “I see a lot of people talking about ‘water fist’ Holloway. So this time, I have to finish somehow.”
Holloway holds the record for most wins by knockout (TKO) in UFC featherweight history with eight wins. However, he is more of a volume puncher who pulls out a referee stop (TKO) by accumulating multiple punches rather than knocking out an opponent with one punch. That’s why some anti-fans mock him as a ‘water fist’.
So he has to be KO this time. He can’t even serve. “If I submit Allen, the water fist nickname will stick around,” Holloway said. If I win by KO this time, people will be reminded of the power of my fists,” he promised.
“’I’m still here!’ is the motto of this match. You could borrow the words of boxer Roy Jones Jr. ‘Looks like you guys have forgotten me!’ Let’s see what happens. I’ve been through this before, and I enjoy it.”
In 2021, after two consecutive losses to Alexander Volkanovski (35, Australia), Holloway gave 445 effective hits to Calvin Cater (35, USA), who faced him, giving him a brutal defeat. After dodging Kater’s fist, who claimed he was the better boxer, Holloway humiliated him by shouting, “I’m the best boxer in the UFC!”
Holloway’s plan is to provide martial arts lessons to rookies who are coming up in this match as well.
Holloway and Alan safely passed the weigh-in on the 15th and were ready for the confrontation. Both fighters came off the scale at 146 pounds (66.2 kg), a full featherweight general boundaries limit.
Holloway’s opponent, Allen, is on a 12-fight winning streak (10 UFC wins) based on solid boxing and wrestling skills. Now, as the final gateway to the title fight, he must overcome former champion Holloway.
“Everybody knows about Holloway’s work,카지노사이트” Allen said. He’s one of the greatest featherweight fighters of all time, and he’s definitely going into the Hall of Fame. That’s why he’s confident that if he beats him, he has nothing more to prove.”
The UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Allen main card will be broadcast live on TVING and tvN SPORTS from 9:30 am on Sunday, April 16th.
