Holloway, 28, sent the tweets after landing in Las Vegas on Monday morning. He began his statement by calling out fans who threatened reporters who believed Alexander Volkanovski deserved to win Sunday’s fight.
Life isn't fair. It's even more unfair for many many other people in the world than it will ever be for me. People are unemployed right now with no end in sight and it's not their fault.— Max Holloway (@BlessedMMA) July 13, 2020
Holloway then put things into perspective, explaining life isn’t fair, but he’s doing better than most. Despite the loss, Holloway said he’s grateful to have his health. He also feels like he proved himself at UFC 251.
It is what it was. Nothing changed for me as a fighter. We proved our point. I still have my five belts at home. I'm 28 and healthy. Blessed era continues. Bless yourself 🤙🏻— Max Holloway (@BlessedMMA) July 13, 2020
