Hawaii's Premier Source For Fighters
On October 21st Max "Blessed" Holloway, who is one of Hawaii's best Lightweight fighter's, will take on one of Hawaii's all time great's in Kaleo "Light Out" Kwan for the Destiny World Lightweight Championship Title. Holloway who is the current X-1 World Event's Lightweight Champion, is undefeated with a record of 4-0, with win's over top Hawaii fighter's like Duke Saragosa, Bryson Kamaka, & Harris Sarmiento. With a win over a Veteran fighter like Kwan, it would only help to solidify his spot at being Hawaii's Best Lightweight fighter, but Kwan is no easy task. With over twenty Pro bout's under his belt, and his experience in fighting with MMA Promotion's like Rumble On The Rock, Strike Force, King Of The Cage, and most recently The Australian Fighting Championship's, you know he will be more then ready to step into that cage and make the most out of he's Title shot.
We had the chance to speak with Max, who is actually training in San Diego right now with one the best lightweight fighter in the UFC,Jeremy Stephens, who is winding his training Camp to take on Anthony Pettis.
MMAABSOLUTE.COM: When you first got the news that you would be facing Kaleo Kwan for the Destiny Title,what ran through your mind?
Holloway: Well my first thoughts was that he's a real cool guy and a nice person, but it's just bad timing because the way I'm looking at it, he's another guy that's in my way to get where I want to be.
MMAABSOLUTE.COM: How do you see this fight ending?
Holloway: Kaleo's a Striker and I'm a Striker and in every fight that I go into, I'm looking for the finish, but you never know it could end early or it could be a five round war. We'll see what happen's come fight night.
MMAABSOLUTE.COM: Your currently training with Jeremy Stephens in the mainland. How is that going?
Holloway: It's going real good, I get to follow Jeremy's training, his strength & conditioning. I'm feeling stronger, I'm eating good, I feel in shape. This is the best that I ever felt, I'm also doing a lot of Wrestling & Jiu-Jitsu up here, so I'm getting my ground game up. I'm feeling more like a complete fighter.
MMAABSOLUTE.COM: On a personal note, you are a few month away from becoming a first time Father. How has that affected you?
HOLLOWAY: It just pushes me to fight even harder because its like I have another mouth to feed. I already push myself hard but now I have to push twice as hard. People will see come Oct 21st.
