What can I say? Max Holloway tried to do something amazing and ran into peak Dustin Poirier. Seeing him stagger backwards across the octagon in the first round of their title fight left me stunned.
To come back and put in on Frankie Edgar like it was no big thing... that is something special. I sat down to rewatch the fight and no single image could capture the feeling. Instead I put together this 16 image storyboard of their fight. As many of you know, I am writing and illustrating a book about MMA. It’s an anothology called The Year In Fighting: 2019, and these are some of the images you’ll find there.
Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
