Screw that.  Dude got owned dominately last time around, which feels like it was just last week still.  Holloway clobbers him into oblivion this time.

José Aldo sees attack as the best form of defense against Max Holloway
Image
“I’m in perfect conditions,” Aldo said as reported by Guillherme Cruz of MMAFighting. “There are always small injuries, but nothing that takes any weapon away. I’m kicking, punching, I’m dong everything now. There are no serious injuries. You can expect the best kickboxing, the best muay thai. I will walk forward the entire time. I want to kick a lot in this fight. I want to put my hands as well, everything I learned recently, I want to go in there and do it.”

“I’ll smother him from beginning to the end, and he will have to worry about his defense. I always saw the attack as the best defense, so I was holding myself back, thinking ‘he has this strong point,' and that harmed me. Not anymore. I want to go in there and be myself, be who I always were. That’s what I want.”

Aldo was winning that fight till he started to slow down in the 3rd.... I'm in no way saying that I think his cardio will be better this time around on short notice camp, but skill wise Aldo is still the best in my opinion.  If he puts it together with a better gameplan this time, maybe with some leg kicks, I think he can beat Max. 
Where the hell is Chad Mendez?? Is he still suspended. The division NEEDS him right now.

Unless he gets off early, Mendes will not be eligible to compete again until June 10, 2018.

Max Holloway confused by Jose Aldo’s claim of renewed motivation: “It just blows my mind”
Image
“This guy — we fought him in his hometown, he was the champion — and for him to be saying that now he feels way more motivated.. fighting for your country and fighting in front of your people for your belt is not enough motivation, what’s going on?” Holloway said, speaking on the UFC 218 media call. “I’m motivated. The belt is great. You know what comes with the belt? Better payday, pay-per-views and a lot more stuff, but the belt is the belt. A fight is a fight.”

“I ain’t trying to go out there and get my butt whooped, my ass whooped in front of billions of people watching at home, thousands of people. That’s not what I’m about. I’m in the hurt business. I’m out there, and I want to win. I don’t care who I fight. I could fight this guy 10 times in a row. I’ll be motivated. That’s just what it is.”

“That’s this warrior spirit that I have in myself and this whole belief I have in myself. It doesn’t take much to motivate me. I don’t know why people talk about, ‘It’s hard to get motivation.' You’re in the wrong business, man. In this business you can get hurt. There’s another guy trying to hurt you seriously in there. This guy’s talking about motivation. It just blows my mind.”

Before Jose Aldo rematch came to pass, Max Holloway eyed 155-pound superfight
Image
Max Holloway is fast becoming known for an old school fighting spirit. The UFC featherweight champion is on an eleven fight win streak, eight of which have been finishes. Indeed, one of the Hawaiian’s most iconic images is beckoning Ricardo Lamas to a complete slugfest for the last ten seconds of their contest.

With all that in mind, it should be absolutely no surprise that when Frankie Edgar pulled out of their upcoming title fight at UFC 218, Holloway was completely ready to face any late note replacement. Even if he had find a lightweight to fit the bill.

“I was super willing,” Holloway said, speaking to MMAWeekly. “Money talks. I’m a fighter. Shit, I was saying whatever, I didn’t even care. I promised the people of Hawaii, I promised the people of Detroit that they’re going to see Max Holloway fight December 2. I promised my fans, my family. I promised you guys.”

“I’m going to fight no matter what.”

“People want to be called the best in the world. The best in the world is not getting ready for one guy,” Holloway said. “I was ready to fight. I was ready to fight anyone. My manager told me about 155 fights and we was ready to go up if we had to, but it is what it is. I got blessed with Jose. I get to prove to everybody why I’m the best in the world and Dec. 2 is going to be a fun night.”

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.
