Max Holloway’s “Blessed” Era Begins – a Fan’s Perspective

Note: This is a column I wrote for Creators.

When interim titleholder Conor McGregor defeated Jose Aldo to unify the UFC featherweight titles in 2015, it marked the end of the Aldo era.

When Max Holloway finished Aldo to unify the 145-pound titles last Saturday at UFC 212, it was the beginning of the “Blessed Era.”

Holloway finished Aldo at UFC 212 in the third round to become the top featherweight in the world. Even being several adult beverages in – a result of finishing a Comic Con Pub Crawl – I was enthralled by the match, a little sad that Aldo lost – he’s one of my favorites – but excited to Holloway win the big on. It was the culmination of a five-year journey for the “Blessed” one that began at UFC 143 where he lost to Dustin Poirier.
