UFC On ESPN 44 Press Conference: Arnold Allen Believes Beating Max Holloway Will Earn Title Shot



UFC on ESPN 44 press conference didn’t look too promising. Max Holloway has never been a trash-talker, he’s worldwide known for his humble personality. Arnold Allen can fire back if the opponent insults him, but he lacks creativity.

Billy Quarantillo is a creative guy, but Edson Barboza doesn’t speak English. Dustin Jacoby has a history of funny statements, but Azamat Murzakanov speaks only Russian.

Yet, two fighters could make Holloway vs Allen press conference entertaining. Ion Cutelaba’s trademarks are Hulk roar and very creative jokes. You can see the creative side of Tanner Boser’s personality when he’s under fire. Cutelaba always trolls his opponents, so let’s hope they are going to make this UFC fight night press conference interesting.
