The upcoming featherweight matchup between Max Holloway and Arnold Allen promises to be a must-see event for UFC fans. Both fighters are widely regarded as two of the best in the division, with impressive resumes and skillsets that make them both formidable opponents.

Arnold Allen comes into the fight riding a twelve-fight win streak and has been touted as a rising star in the featherweight division. He has looked unstoppable in recent years, racking up impressive victories over tough opponents such as Dan Hooker and Calvin Kattar. A win over Max Holloway would be monumental for Allen and would put him in a prime position to challenge for the featherweight championship.

On the other hand, Max Holloway is a former featherweight champion who is looking to make his way back to the top of the division. He has been in many wars and has built a reputation of a fighter who will not back down from any challenge. However, with three losses to current champion Alexander Volkanovski, the road to the title is uncertain for Holloway. That is why he was willing to take a risk and fight a top-five opponent like Arnold Allen.

Holloway has made it clear that he is on a mission to take on all the top contenders in the division and prove that he is still a top contender himself. He believes that two of his three fights against Volk were close enough that they could have gone either way, and he wants to show the world that he still has what it takes to be a champion.

The matchup between Allen and Holloway is sure to be a highly competitive and exciting fight with a lot at stake for both fighters. If Arnold wins it is an immediate title shot opportunity facing the winner of Volkanovski -Rodriguez. If Holloway were to come out on top, it would set up an interesting scenario with the loser of Rodriguez-Volk and the possibility of another title shot down the line. Holloway knows the importance of taking on a tough opponent like Arnold Allen, stating “I’m fighting the guy who they’re talking about is next in title contention. A lot of guys thought he should have got the interim title. So, at the end of the day, to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best”

Rollo”s Take
Max Holloway will go down as one of the best fighters in featherweight history. Despite this, the man who has never dodged a fight, fighting legends like Aldo and Poirier and McGregor, will end up losing to Arnold Allen on Saturday night. For Holloway, there are only so many punches his chin can take, and the younger Allen, who has less wear and tear and seems to be entering his prime, will come out on top.
