Yet, no matter how much momentum Holloway has at his back, “Blessed” sees his upcoming bout with Pettis as a clean slate. Holloway knows he’s been on deck for a shot at the 145-pound title for a hot minute, and none of that means anything if he stumbles in Toronto.
“At the end of the day, this winning streak ain’t nothing now,” Holloway said. “I have a date now on Dec. 10, and I’m going for 1-0. My time is coming, but if it doesn’t then it doesn’t. I’m going to get where I’m going no matter what. In my mind, I’m the best fighter walking the planet, and UFC 206 is just one more chance to go out and make them believe.
“It felt great just to get a fight but even better to get this fight in particular. This is a high-profile fight and one I know people really want to see.”
That’s what he brings to the table each and every time, and Holloway wants Canadian fight fans to know that’s what they will get
