Sport

Conor McGregor vs. Max Holloway full fight video to see McGregor pick up a decision win over Holloway in what would turn out to be a battle of future champions at a UFC Fight Night in Boston on Aug. 17, 2013.

Before Conor McGregor and Max Holloway rose to stardom, they faced each other early in their UFC careers. For McGregor, this was just his second UFC appearance; for Holloway, just 21 years old at the time, it was his sixth. McGregor was the better man on that night, sweeping the scorecards en route to a unanimous decision win on the preliminary portion of the card, but greater glory awaited both fighters.

Today, McGregor appears to be done with fighting after announcing a retirement in June, while Holloway contemplates the next step in his career after losing back-to-back title fights to Alexander Volkanovski.
