Max Holloway has declared that he wants to go down as the best UFC fighter in history, ahead of this weekend’s title unification bout against Jose Aldo.
Interim featherweight champion Holloway heads into UFC 212 on the back of a 10-fight winning streak and looking to dominate the longest-reigning featherweight title holder in the organisation’s history.
But the 25-year-old is looking beyond Saturday’s meeting with Aldo, in Brazil, to a future where he can dominate every featherweight contender that the UFC can throw at him.

“I want to be the best guy ever to do this,” Holloway said.
“When I’m done, a long time from now and people are still talking about my name as being the best undisputed fighter in the world. It’s the gold, everything.

“I want to be like Demetrious Johnson, taking pictures with 11 belts. Or even like Joanna [Jedrzejczyk] with her five belts.
“It’s cool. I want to be like these guys and just be dominant. I want to make sure there’s no doubt that I was the best to ever do this.”
