Max Holloway-Became Champion by help of Supporting Wife
It was a great day for "Blessed" Max as he beat former champion, Jose Aldo, to claim the title and he got reunited with his wife.
After landing in Hawaii international airport, people flocked to the airport just to see a glimpse of the champ. After all, he made them all proud.
Max's current record is 11-0. His last known defeat was against the current UFC Lightweight Champion, Conor McGregor.
But of all the people in the airport, Max wanted to meet one special person and that was none other than his beloved wife.
He married his girlfriend in 2012. During the time, he was struggling to make it big in UFC but despite all odds, his wife pushed him further and further.
Whenever there's a big match coming up, his wife is most probably beside the ring to support her husband. He would often hug his wife before going in for a fight.
Children Between Them
It's been 5-years since their marriage and the Holloway family of two lives with one small member. The new champion is a proud father of a boy, Rush. #MiniBlessed, as Max would call him.
The duo welcomed their son on Jan. 4, 2012, around the time Max signed his first UFC contract. Two milestones in a single day. Pretty damn lucky, to say the least.
Both father and son share a special bond. When Max won the Interim UFC Featherweight Title, he called his son right away and shared the news with him.
In the heartwarming conversation, his son asked if he won the title for which he replied 'I won the golden belt.' Their son is currently studying at Kindergarten.
