I hate how champions who just won the belt are trying to do superfights... you have to defend the belt multiple times and clean out a division before it a "superfight"....

Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendez, and Jose Aldo can all beat Max... he needs to worry about those guys before he goes moving anywhere.

Max Holloway unfazed by the threat of Jose Aldo leg kicks

“I got 250 cupcakes coming in,” Holloway said. “Who doesn’t like the new flavor? I want to try a new flavor. But, hey, there’s the other ones, the same ones. I’ll eat them again. These guys are like cupcakes to me. They’re all on the menu.”

“Time tells all. That’s the beautiful thing about the sport,” Holloway said. “You can do all this, you can say all this, but when you get in there, you can’t lie. You can’t lie to yourself. This guy is talking about leg kicks. He’s out there training with Mikey Garcia. Mikey Garcia comes and calls me out. What the hell are these guys talking about?”

“I was expecting leg kicks [in our first fight], but I was expecting him to shoot, too. All these strikers. They always tell me, ‘This guy is going to strike with me.' Name one guy who fully struck with me. All these guys try to strike with me, and they end up looking for takedowns.”

Dana White questions the injury which forced Frankie Edgar out of UFC 218

“My question for Frankie – and I haven’t talked to Frankie yet, Frankie is in Russia or something right now, I think – but how do you break your orbital in training? Unless it was a freak knee to the eye in wrestling or something like that,” White said as reported by MMAJunkie.

“Who’s hitting you that hard in your training camp that you break your orbital? That’s insane. Anybody know the answer to that question?”

“You know what’s funny? So, the Detroit show is on par to sell out,” White explained. “We’re selling out. The show’s going to be a sellout. You know when you’re going to sell out because of how many tickets you have left and how many days. We put José Aldo on the card, and…. Tickets. Yeah.“

“We’re going to find out how hungry Jose Aldo is and how bad he wants that belt back. He’s getting this opportunity because Frankie fell out. Life is all about jumping on those opportunities. I actually liked it that Aldo wanted this fight like that. It’s awesome. I’m excited. I’m excited for that fight.”

Max Holloway believes it’s being relatable that helps relationship with fans

“I think it’s just how relatable I am,” Holloway said at the UFC 218 media day in regards to his warm reception. “I’m not far off. You know, Kevin Durant once said something super cool I thought that was funny, he said ‘look guys, I’m a superstar yes, but we’re not that far off. I drink sometimes, I give shit to my friends, I slide in DMs’. We’re the same. We’re the same people.”

On Saturday, Holloway will be facing his first title challenger — the man he won the belt from in the first place, Jose Aldo. The two meet in the main event of UFC 218, and instead of showing any signs of frustration at the late name change, Holloway remains buoyant about stepping into the cage once again.

“I’m excited,” he said. “Every single fight I grow, I grow. I’m never, ever okay with being okay, I want to be the greatest I can be, and I’m getting ready for the greatest Jose Aldo. I hope he’s getting ready for the greatest Max Holloway because he’s going to see it.”

What's funny is that Aldo being on this card has much less to do with its success than the real reason for it.
