Being in Boston apparently had McGregor flashing back to UFC Fight Night 26, which took place Aug. 17, 2013 at TD Garden. That was the night McGregor, who was 25 at the time, defeated a 21-year-old Max Holloway by unanimous decision.
McGregor, apparently in some kind of mood, took to Twitter on Saturday night to claim the home of the Bruins as “McGregor’s Garden,” and he did so at Holloway’s expense with some unflattering photos of the UFC featherweight champion.
As you might know, the McGregor fight was the last time Holloway suffered a loss. Since then, he’s gone on an incredible 13-fight winning streak that’s led him to become one of the world’s top pound-for-pound fighters.
Holloway took notice of McGregor’s cheap shot on Twitter, and all I can say is that his series of tweets in response was one hell of a takedown.
lol there you are my bratha. glad you got to relive your best years today in Boston
but if we talking about the past remember this. I was 21. You were 25.
This is me at 25
This is you at 21 http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Joseph+Duffy+38+seconds …
Also Dennis beat me that summer too so if beating 21 year old Max is a trophy to you congrats you share it with Dennis
You know who I share these trophies with? Nobody
And know this. I would beat 21 year old Max too but I would finish him in two rounds and not let him take my ACL
A Holloway vs. McGregor rematch is something I think we’d all love to see. And who knows? Maybe it’ll happen, but that’ll likely depend on Holloway winning next month at UFC 236, when he takes on Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight title.
