Waianae’s Holloway Defeats Aldo for UFC Featherweight TitleJune 4, 2017, 7:51 AM HST · Updated June 4, 7:52 AM Wendy Osher · 0 Comments
The win came as Holloway landed a right hand, and advanced to the mount position, working Aldo on the floor with multiple strikes to his back. The fight stoppage was called at 4:13.
Holloway, 25, is now 18-3, while Aldo’s record is now 26-3.
Holloway is currently on an 11 fight win streak after last losing to current light weight champion Connor McGregor on Aug. 17, 2013 in a three round unanimous decision.
Holloway has been lobbying for a UFC event to make its way to Hawaiʻi. He has already suggested former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar in the featherweight division as his next challenge.
Fellow Hawaiʻi fighter Yancy Medeiros, 29, of Makaha, is now 14-4 after defeating Erik Silva in just over 2 minutes of Round 2 at UFC 212, landing a left hook and following up with punches while on the ground for the TKO.
