Yair wants to bounce back from UFC Vegas 42

Yair Rodriguez failed to score a win in his match against Max Holloway at UFC Vegas 42. The star now wants to get back on track and heal to get back to his top form. Yair believes that he can keep on climbing to the top.

Yair had a big chance in the fight of the year as seen by fans, but it took just 25 minutes for the former featherweight champion to knock him down and crush him when it mattered most. As soon as the fight ended, Yair knew it was all about making the next step, and he was ready.

He still thanked every fan who supported him all the way through the match. He was pleased with the way he played and wants to build from it.

‘Everybody, thank you for being here for me and for my family’, the star said. ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying. I just want to say, it was an amazing fight. Just keep moving forward guys. Thank you’.

Despite being out for the past two runs, Yair still showed that he can get a big break in their match when he closed out a huge match against Max. The star left with a loss on his record, but he was glad to walk it off with an inspired heart.

Yair also said that he could have done more to earn the win, but there was no way that he could have thought of that while in the cage. This is why he deserves a chance to win a lot of matches in the UFC soon.

As the fight ended, Yair leaned on his coaches for support. He had a swollen foot and his kicking game was affected for the whole match. Max was a menace, but he sure had a tough time dealing with an inspired Yair.

Despite the loss, Yair is still a major player at 145 pounds who has a 2-1 record. This gives him a good look in his next set of games and this might turn out to be the best one for him as he can get a chance to build a stronger pace.
