Max Holloway, you have officially been declared a Jersey Guy. The declaration came on Rear-Naked Choke Radio, as Joe Rizzo (@RearNakedChoke) declared it to Jason Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) after Holloway’s heart-felt tweet to Frankie Edgar after UFC 222.

Audio available for download on iTunes or on Stitcher Radio

Rizzo and Kelly took the opportunity to do a deep dive into the careers of Max Holloway, Frankie Edgar, Cris “Cyborg” Justino, and even the retiring Mike Pyle.

There was talk of the rash of split decisions at UFC 222, plus the latest on reactions from Nate Diaz, and the Burger King signing of new pitch man Conor McGregor (plus Holloway’s take on it). It was also the UFC debut of jiu-jitsu phenom Mackenzie Dern and the second promotional fight for Sean O’Malley.

As always, feel free to comment below or send feedback about the show to @RNCRadio or @CombatPress on Twitter, or on Facebook at RNC Radio or Combat Press, and on YouTube.
