Max Holloway's Chase for UFC Greatness Backfires in Upset Loss to Dustin Poirier

Max Holloway's Chase for UFC Greatness Backfires in Upset Loss to Dustin Poirier

It wasn't all that long ago that the notion of a fighter winning two concurrent UFC belts in different weight classes was a fanciful one.

That's what Max Holloway was chasing when he fought Dustin Poirier for the lightweight title at UFC 236 in Atlanta.

And yet, Holloway vs. Poirier felt like more than just your usual window dressing for casual fans.

Every fighter who has won concurrent UFC titles in separate divisions always says they want to defend both belts—this is where being skeptical comes in handy—and thus far, none of them have.

Reaching the pinnacle of a UFC weight class is close to impossible.
