He used his length and varied his targets. His footwork was sharp, he was defensively responsible and showed good durability, and mixed in weapons we hadn’t seen him use too often in recent fights, like the spinning back kick that found Gaethje’s nose and left it shattered at the end of the first round.

Holloway stayed tight, stayed within himself at all times, chipping away, chipping away, chipping away until the opportunity presented itself for him to land something bigger, and then he did. It was that way throughout the fight.

Touch-touch-touch-POP! Touch-touch-POP! Touch-POP! POP!

On Saturday night, “Blessed” was indeed the best.
