UFC On ABC 1 Full Fight Video: Watch Max Holloway Knock Out Anthony Pettis

In 2013, Max Holloway lost back-to-back featherweight battles against Dennis Bermudez and Conor McGregor. Following those setbacks, Holloway went on a nine-fight winning streak. That run earned the 25-year a shot at the interim featherweight title. Holloway faced ex-lightweight champion Anthony Pettis in that December 2016 matchup.

At the time of the bout, Holloway was the No. 2 ranked featherweight, while Pettis, who made his 145-pound debut in August with a submission win over Charles Oliveira, was the No. 5 ranked featherweight. 

Pettis lost his chance to claim the interim title when he weighed in at 148 pounds, three pounds over the featherweight limit. Pettis was a +190 underdog to Holloway, who came into the scrap as a -240 favorite. 

Holloway outworked Pettis and scored a TKO win at the 4:50 mark of the third round. The Hawaiian competitor defeated Jose Aldo by TKO at UFC 212 to win the undisputed featherweight title. 

Holloway defended the 145-pound title three times before he lost the belt to Alexandre Volkanovski via unanimous decision in December 2019. The two met in a rematch in July 2020. Volkanovski won that fight as well.

Holloway is the No.1 ranked fighter in the official UFC featherweight rankings. He faces the No. 6 ranked Calvin Kattar in the main event of Saturday’s UFC on ABC 1 fight card from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.
