Holloway was awarded the BMF (Bad Motherf—er) title. Gaethje had won the title from Dustin Poirier at UFC 291.

“That fight sucked the life out of everybody tonight,” UFC president Dana White said. “People ask me what I do. I sell holy s— moments. That was the ultimate holy s— moment. Let’s just talk about (their) fight for the rest of the press conference.”

Holloway was expected to win the fight via judges’ decision before he knocked out Gaethje. He picked up his 26th win of his MMA career.

“This is the moment,” Holloway added. “This is what the BMF is known for. If that’s not a BMF moment, I don’t know what is. If Justin was up, he would’ve given me those ten seconds.”

White added: “That’s why Max Holloway is beloved. He’s got the fight won and in there with one of the most dangerous fighters in the business. That’s like movie s—. It’s the fight of the year. If something beats that as fight of the year, holy s—.”
