Former two-division UFC champion, Daniel Cormier, and the former UFC featherweight champion, Max Holloway, share a friendly yet back-and-forth taunting relationship. The Hawaiian, Holloway, has threatened DC multiple times that he will take the ‘Daddest Man On the Planet’ award from him.

The duo was on a UFC set together ahead of UFC 264 where Holloway appeared on the UFC weigh-in show. He had a match against DC in the EA Sports UFC 4 game. It seems like Cormier got the better of ‘Blessed’ as he earned a knockout win in the game.

Gotta be honest , ain’t much better than knocking a dude out with his own character in @easportsufc 4!!! Had to show this cat @BlessedMMA what’s up! #ufcweighinshow,” wrote DC.

DC has previously also clashed with the former UFC heavyweight champion Miocic in a fight in the game. And now he has also gotten the better of Holloway. Cormier provides the ratings and upgrades to the fighters in the game. As he is present cage side on the desk almost every weekend, he has a fair idea of every fighter’s recent form.

So, it’s only fitting he keeps the game updated for the fans and players. However, it feels like he is nourishing his skills as a player of the game too. Judging by his recent form, at least on television, it would take someone exceptional to get the better of him.

What’s next for Max Holloway?

Holloway was set to fight Yair Rodriguez this weekend. However, injury to the former champion meant that the bout had to be canceled for now. ‘Blessed’ is still expected to return soon.

Holloway absolutely demolished Calvin Kattar in his last fight in the first UFC card of 2021. It was hands down one of the greatest UFC performances in recent times. So, fans are hyped for his return. It remains to be seen when he really steps into the octagon. However, his virtual octagon appearance didn’t go so well as ‘DC’ trumped him.
