Max Holloway Has Encouraging Message For Daniel Cormier Following UFC 241

Max Holloway has some kind words for Daniel Cormier following UFC 241.

Cormier put the UFC heavyweight championship on the line this past Saturday night (Aug. 17). He took on Stipe Miocic in a rematch. Miocic was knocked out in their first encounter back in July 2018, but got his revenge with a fourth-round TKO win over Cormier. Miocic is now a two-time UFC heavyweight title holder.

After the fight, Max Holloway took to his Instagram page to send a heartfelt message “DC’s” way.

I can't even remember how DC entered my life. He's like the kid who sits at your lunch table and talks to you just so he can eat some of your food. Now here we are… my big brother. Big brother to Khabib. Captain to AKA. Coach at Gilroy High. Legacy isn't about the belts you take from the sport. It's about what you leave behind. So many of us out here chasing things for ourselves and DC been out here chasing the next lunch tables, finding the next generation he can pay it forward to. I don't know what DC's family will decide to do. But I know he has nothing left to prove, and even if he did we'll all still be here proving it for him every day. And when we're done, it'll be some kids from Gilroy taking our spots, still proving what doesn't have to be proven any more. That DC is still and will always be the number one pound for pound daddest man on the planet. Bruce Buffer don't need you in there to do his job. But I need you to do mine. Rest up and get back to my lunch table big brother. I love you

Cormier said he’s mulling over the decision to have another fight or retire. “DC” will discuss the next move with his family first. One thing is for sure, however, it appears a trilogy bout with Miocic would have to be offered for “DC” to throw leather one last time.
