Max Holloway pays classy tribute to Alexander Volkanovski just days after UFC 245 loss



Max Holloway’s lengthy run as the UFC’s featherweight champ came to end last Saturday night in Las Vegas when he lost to Alexander Volkanovski via unanimous decision after five very good rounds.

Holloway was a great champion inside the Octagon and an even better man and father outside of it as he continued to grow after winning the belt in 2017.

As crushing as Saturday night’s loss must have been, Holloway handled everything with class in his post-fight interview as he praised Volkanovski and said he’d be back.

On Tuesday Holloway shared this classy message about the new champ, who he will likely face again down the line:

He was willing to fight for an interim belt. If he couldn’t fight me he was willing to fight anybody even fighters ranked below him. When you’re a champ everybody is below you so Alex was carrying the weight of that belt before Dana wrapped it around his waist. Happy for Alex and Emma and their daughters, and Australia. Same ocean, different waves. See you in the lineup again

Here’s the Instagram post that went with it:

All class their from Holloway, which is to be expected.
