Jersey tough! Frankie is a absolute warrior but Max was just too sharp great win for a great champion.— Dillon Danis (@dillondanis) July 28, 2019
Holloway was just too dominant in determining the proper range and even when Frankie did get in on a single or body lock, Max had an answer there too. This was a sharp performance and an improved Holloway imo. #UFC240— Kenny Florian (@kennyflorian) July 28, 2019
Good clean fight. Congrats guys.— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) July 28, 2019
