Following recent comments from Jose Aldo, where he accused Max Holloway of “acting like a punk” and not agreeing to a February 11th bout, the latter’s manager has responded.
Aldo recently spoke with MMA Fighting.com, and while doing so, he blasted Holloway for calling him out, only to then pass on a fight at UFC 208. Well since then Holloway’s manager, Bryan Butler, posted the comments and picture below on Instagram:
#MMAnews FACT 1: This is the reason @blessedmma is not able to turn around and fight Aldo on Feb 11th. FACT 2: X-rays show re-injured the same injury he suffered in the 1st rnd of his fight with Conor. FACT 3: Doctors say no impact or training for 6 weeks. FACT 4: Max did not know about the potential fight date with Aldo until Dana told him in the cage and adrenaline was still pumping so this injury was not felt until after the events activities ended. FACT 5: Max has no hesitations in fighting Aldo and will do so when he can. #teamblessed #represented
If you missed it earlier, Aldo is also reporting that the UFC is interesting in having him fight for an interim 155 title next.
