The man who dominated the featherweight division for so long, American Max Holloway, has lost 3 of his last 5 fights, all of them title fights. But the 29-year-old is still hot for a belt.

He fights Mexican Yair Rodríguez at UFC Fight Night 197 this weekend, hoping to earn another shot against current UFC featherweight champion, Aussie Alexander Volkanovski.

Rodríguez, who has not fought in 2 years, has lost just 1 of his past 5 bouts and is a dangerous opponent for Holloway in what should be a fantastic bout with plenty on the line.
