Max Holloway returns to action on Saturday night, when he attempts to regain the UFC featherweight title he lost to Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 245.

They say fighters are mostly judged off their most recent performance, and if that’s the case, “Blessed” is getting shortchanged.

Prior to the Volkanovski loss, Holloway went on a tremendous run as featherweight champion, to the point many considered him near the top of the sport’s pound for pound rankings.

And you only have to back to UFC 231 to remember how great Hawaii’s finest can be when he’s firing at all cylinders. Holloway’s title defense against Brian Ortega was highly anticipated. Ortega went into the bout undefeated, and the machup felt like one of those once-in-a-generation fights.

But Holloway had other plans. Ortega proved to be ridiculously tough, but he got to prove this because Holloway put on a clinic in the octagon. Ortega wouldn’t quit, but eventually, the doctors in Toronto ended it for him, earning Holloway a TKO victory at the 5:00 mark of the fourth round.

Now, as we get set for the Volkanovski-Holloway rematch at UFC 251, which goes down on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi on Saturday, you can take a look back at one of his finest nights in the cage in the video above.
