UFC Fight Island 7 video highlights: Max Holloway styles on Calvin Kattar to win decision
Bloody Elbow 2.0 | Anton Tabuena

UFC Fight Island 7 was capped off with a stellar performance form the company’s 145-pound ruler, Max Holloway. He was firing on all cylinders against the #6 ranked, Calvin Kattar, out-striking him by a rather wide margin. Holloway used his usually high-volume style, throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Kattar. Credit to Kattar for taking everything and even throwing back some quality blows, but he was completely out-classed here. Holloway even took the final bit of the final round to taunt Kattar for his pre-fight trash talk. What a wild performance from a former champ!
