Although the current UFC lightweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (Alexander Volkanovski) did not make a controversial decision when he last appeared in the octagon, Max Holloway (Max Holloway) Not drowned in the past.
When he was preparing to return to the main event matchup with Calvin Kattar on UBC Fight Island 7, the matchup was broadcast on ABC. The former 145-pound king understood what he thought was a bad scorecard. Frustrated with the wrong ending.
Having said that, Holloway admitted that after hearing the news of some UFC fighters, the sting of the loss is easier to accept, and they still rank him as the best lightweight player in the sport, and at the same time in recent He nodded in a tribute to Volkanovski. meeting.
“This is very important,”
“Not only fans. Competitors. People like Nate [Diaz]Dustin [Poirier]Justin [Gaethje], George [Masvidal], Coach and others, GSP coach [Firas Zahabi], “Big” John McCarthy (John McCarthy), the man who made the rules. I am not too angry. “
After making this decision, Holloway has been one of the stronger advocates of mixed martial arts open scoring. He had the opportunity to see the system sit in the cage of a recent Invicta FC card in Kansas. Work by yourself.
The promotion of the women’s all-around tournament has been testing public scoring with the Kansas State Athletic Commission. In this tournament, fighters, broadcast teams and spectators will be told how the judge will score a match after each round.
In addition to public scoring, UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping recently raised questions about accountability systems, which officials may routinely report bad scorecards, but seem to have little effect.
For Holloway, he is not pretending to know all the answers, but the 29-year-old Hawaiian can’t help but hope for a change.
“I know how I feel about public scoring, and I heard that the boss [Dana White] It feels like scoring publicly. Holloway said. “In the final analysis, this is how they feel, but it will not shake my position. We ended up in Kansas, watched the INVISTA battle, saw how it went down, and answered many questions. I thought it would have a negative effect on the battle, but it didn’t. That’s cool. We will see what happens.
“Also, as I said,’Big’ John McCarthy actually offers courses for judges and other things. I don’t know what the answer is. I don’t want to sound like a complaint, but I hope they will soon Discover and find us.”
The biggest drawback of this controversial decision may be that Holloway has now withdrawn from two games against Volkanovsky, which means he may have to work harder to get a third chance.
However, none of this seems to make Holloway focus on the task at hand, as he maintains the manner of fighting for Kattar for the first time since 2016.
Holloway explained: “Before I got the belt, I told you-the belt is just to show the world that I am a champion.” “I will treat myself as a champion belt or not. We are going to fight there. I I like fighting. I like fighting.
“People say it’s hard to get up. I’m still fighting five, five [minute] round. It is still the championship round. We are on ABC. I know that many pay-per-view fighters will reach this position, so in general, it feels the same. Fighting means fighting to me. “
