Moments before shocking the world with terrifying knockout over Justin gaethje, Max Holloway staged another moment of rare mastery in the octagon of UFC 300. One of the big stars at the event held this Saturday (13), the Hawaiian promoted a strong image by breaking his opponent's nose with a round kick of rare mastery. The action was one of the many highlights for the featherweight legend (up to 65,7kg) over the course of almost 25 minutes.

In the images (see below), it is possible to follow the moment when Holloway connects the precise blow to Justin's face. Despite the obvious injury, Gaethje ended up 'saved by the bell' on that occasion.

Max's gala performance resulted in him winning the 'BMF' belt. The UFC's symbolic title confirms the 'Toughest' athlete in MMA.

Outperformed on the show, Gaethje has reason to regret. The stumble, in addition to the loss of the belt, momentarily removes the North American from competing again for the lightweight throne (up to 70,3kg).
