ANDair Rodriguez has been respectful to his next opponent, Max Holloway, and recognized the Hawaiian star as one of the best in history. Both will star on November 13 in the UFC main event (broadcast on DAZN).

Rodriguez has lost only once in seven years to the UFC, falling to Frankie Edgar in 2017. He has been on a roll ever since, beating Jeremy Stephens in his last fight in 2019. ‘Pantera’ hasn’t fought in two years, but he never stopped training during this break.

“While I have been away, I have been able to work on many things, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually,” said Rodriguez. “I know Max held the belt for a long time and is one of the best fighters in MMA history. Fighting him takes me to the next level I need to be to become a champion. I have fought former champions before, but not. I was at a point in my mind where I was mature enough, “Yair pointed out.

Holloway will treat this fight as an interim title match leading to another showdown against Alex Volkanovski. ‘The Blessed’ is coming off a decision win against Calvin Kattar in January.
