Max Holloway Entered ‘The Matrix’ With Amazing Head Movement At UFC Fight Island 7

Max Holloway Entered ‘The Matrix’ With Amazing Head Movement At UFC Fight Island 7

An amazing, slow-mo video of Max Holloway making Calvin Kattar miss by millimeters at UFC Fight Island 7 shows the former featherweight champ's Matrix-style head movement.

Holloway dominated his fellow American en route to a lopsided unanimous decision victory on Saturday, utilising his supreme striking skills. However it was his defensive genius that blew fans' minds.

In the final round, Holloway dropped his fists to his side and allowed Kattar free shots at his head - but slipped and dodged the incoming fire with jaw-dropping precision.

Holloway even shouted "I'm the best boxer in the UFC" while dodging punches from Kattar during the incredible sequence.

The commentary team compared Holloway to boxing's current pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez, but the skill is actually right out of the Muhammad Ali textbook.

"While not looking," said one UFC fan on Twitter, noting that Holloway didn't even have his eyes on Kattar. "That was the most savage thing I've ever seen."

"Never seen his head movement like that. I mean absolutely reading opponent's hands," commented another.

The 29-year-old Holloway also landed vicious elbow strikes, brutal body shots and some lethal spinning attacks as he set a UFC record of 445 significant strikes.

It returned the Hawaiian to the win column after he lost his UFC featherweight title to Alexander Volkanovski in 2019, then narrowly lost via split-decision last year in trying to regain it.

However the final scorecards after five rounds on Saturday were not close at all: 50-43, 50-43 and 50-42 to Holloway who produced one of his best performances of his outstanding MMA career.

His first victory since July 2019 could see Holloway face the winner of Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega, provisionally slated for UFC 260 in March.

As for the brave Kattar, he's probably still swinging blows at thin air and wondering exactly how Holloway keeps dodging him.
