Afgelopen zaterdag 3 juni, tijdens het hoofdgevecht van UFC 212, heeft Max Holloway een nieuw tijdperk geopend voor de UFC Featherweight divisie. Hij won de titel door de dominante kampioen Jose Aldo te verslaan in de derde ronde. Veel fans vroegen zich af waarom Jose Aldo zo weinig leg-kicks uitdeelde. Tijdens de Fox Fight Club vertelde coach Andre Pederneiras hier meer over:

“Every fight the athlete enters he has some kind of injury, and Aldo is no different, he has his. Many people asked why he didn’t kicked. Aldo has a leg injury, so he couldn’t throw kicks or run during his entire camp.

“That doesn’t take anything away from Max Holloway’s win, we don’t want to say that. It was even funny because we would go back outside the Octagon between rounds the crowd said ‘tell him to kick,’ but we, the cornermen, were the only aware of it. We avoided the kicks because of this injury. We were afraid it would strain his muscle.”

“He spent his entire camp working on his boxing and his takedown, his ground game. Since Aldo felt well standing in the first rounds, he decided not to go for takedowns, but Holloway’s punch landed and everything changed.”

De Ultimate Fighting Championship is momenteel opzoek naar een volgend gevecht. Het zou goed kunnen dat de oud kampioen wordt ingeroosterd tegen Cub Swanson. Beide mannen kwamen elkaar al eerder tegen tijdens WEC 41 op 7 juni 2009. Houd MMA DNA in de gaten voor meer MMA nieuws!
