Max Holloway Sounds Sleepy Again

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to roll out its UFC 245 “Embedded” video blogs for this weekend’s end-of-year extravaganza, featuring a championship tripleheader available only by way of ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) on Sat., Dec. 14, 2019 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Headlining this weekend’s fight card will be the 170-pound grudge match pitting reigning welterweight kingpin, Kamaru Usman, opposite bitter rival and division No. 1 contender, Colby Covington. In addition, Max Holloway defends his featherweight title against Alexander Volkanovski, while Amanda Nunes gives Germaine De Randamie a second chance to make history on the PPV main card.

Featherweight title challenger Alexander Volkanovski cruises through his workout but struggles with a hotel mini-fridge. Featherweight king Max Holloway leads his team on a hike at Red Rock Canyon and demonstrates his questionable tracking skills. Double champ Amanda Nunes does media hits and sightsees in LA.

After scrolling through the YouTube comments I was troubled to see I’m not the only one who thinks Holloway sounds “sleepy” again, a condition that had ex-champion and UFC commentator, Michael Bisping, worried ahead of UFC 226 back in July 2018.
