Max Holloway called Daniel Cormier in his usual hilarious way again after his win over Calvin Kattar last night. The former featherweight champion was tough Daniel Cormier for a while now, repeating the same style of call over and over. It has become a funny tradition, where each time Max Holloway is asked about possible future showdowns, he remembers mentioning DC at least once.
After his clinical victory at UFC Fight Island 7, ‘Blessed’ didn’t forget to continue the joke. In his post-fight interview, he challenged Cormier, saying he was coming for his office job now.
“DC played a joke on me when he bought his new house. It looks like a castle. Have you seen his new house? He spends all his money and there is only one ‘Money Fight’ and it’s me, DC … You eat whatever I work for … I come for your office job. I come for your retail job – everything. I take everything, DC, “Holloway said.
Max Holloway put on a spectacle worthy of a title fight in Etihad Arena in Fight Island, just like his opponent Calvin Kattar. While Holloway stole the show by winning 445 important strikes, according to ESPN Stats Info, which is the highest on record in a UFC fight, Calvin Kattar refused to back down and took the fight to five full rounds.
Max Holloway won the fight by unanimous decision with full scores on all levels. The final scorecards showed 50-43, 50-43 and 50-42. After the fight, he offered to get ready for the headliner of UFC 257 and said Dana White can call it if something is wrong, whether it’s with Dustin Poirier or Conor McGregor.
The one time Max Holloway called DC face to face
DC and Max Holloway share a great friendship and camaraderie and often spend time together at the gym or elsewhere. After several calls from Max Holloway, Daniel Cormier finally decided to meet his challenges by telling an equally hilarious story from one of their past encounters.
Cormier spoke of a time they were together at Holloway and the latter decided to take on DC, who is over a hundred pounds ahead of him.
“Holloway called me for a while. I kept trying to let him go. I want to let the kid get away with it. I want to tell you another story from The Ultimate Fighter. We were in this house, a beautiful mansion. Holloway decides he wants to test me. I think he’s only figured out that he can’t take me. He grabbed me and I literally threw his little one on the couch. And he was like, Oh my god! ”shared Daniel Cormier.
