Move over “Mystic Mac,” there’s a new featherweight prophet in town.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 145-pound titleholder, Max Holloway, predicted the Raptors would defeat the Bucks in game six of the Eastern Conference playoffs and advance to the NBA finals.
Lo and behold, Toronto topped Milwaukee last night by a score of 100-94.
Holloway is no stranger to calling shots. He told UFC color commentator, Joe Rogan, that Brian Ortega was going down in the fourth round of their UFC 231 main event. Five minutes later, the ringside physician condemned “T-City” to gatekeeper status.
It will be interesting to hear his prediction for his upcoming Frankie Edgar fight, booked for the UFC 240 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner on July 27, 2019 inside Rogers Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
One thing I feel comfortable predicting, is that the winner will move on to face “pissed off” featherweight No. 1 contender, Alexander Volkanovski at some point later this year.
