UFC 4 Update
While this isn't the UFC 4 Title Update 8.0 that is expected in February, the new roster update brings some important changes nonetheless.
Max Holloway Rating Reaches 5 Stars
UFC 4 ratings are measured in stars, and Max Holloway has reached the top of the totem pole by being upped to a 5 star OVR after his impressive showing against Calvin Kattar.
Holloway outstruck Kattar, an accomplished boxer himself, to an incredible degree. By the end of the fight, Holloway landed 445 Significant Strikes to Kattar's 133.
During the fight, Holloway pulled off one of the most cinematic moves in UFC history, looking to the commentary desk to shout that he is the best boxer in the UFC while dodging a 4-punch combo without looking, and landing shots afterward.
