We still don’t know what’s going to happen with reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, but “The Eagle” offered his thoughts on Max Holloway’s UFC 231 performance.
Holloway defended his featherweight title vs. Brian Ortega in the main event, scoring a fourth round TKO victory after the doctor stopped the bout.
Nurmagomedov, who is still suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission, could potentially be a future opponent for Holloway.
