After losing a unanimous decision to Poirier (25-5 MMA, 17-4 UFC) in the interim lightweight title main event, Holloway (20-4 MMA, 16-4 UFC) walked past press row with his head held high. Before vanishing to the back, though, he stopped to deliver a message to MMA Junkie.
Holloway, who is still the UFC featherweight champion, is a strong supporter of everything Toronto. The city’s NBA franchise, the Toronto Raptors have embraced “Blessed,” but fell to the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series just hours prior to Holloway stepping in the octagon.
It’s clear the Hawaiian saw the outcome, because he had the presence of mind to bring it up during a brief post-fight comment.
