By: Tristen Critchfield Dec 14, 2016
Holloway is unquestionably proud of his Hawaiian roots, and the
island is just as proud of him.
The newly-crowned UFC interim featherweight champion recently
received a warm homecoming greeting upon his return to Waiane,
Hawaii. Holloway defeated Anthony
Pettis via third-round technical knockout to capture the
interim crown in the UFC 206
headliner this past Saturday, his 10th straight victory in the
“Blessed” could receive an even bigger welcome should he be
successful in his next venture. The win over Pettis sets up a
future title unification showdown against Jose Aldo. UFC
208 in Brooklyn has been targeted for that matchup, but nothign is
official as of now.
