UFC Star Max Holloway Pays Tribute To 'The History Of Croker' After Croke Park Visit

UFC Star Max Holloway Pays Tribute To 'The History Of Croker' After Croke Park Visit
By Balls Team

UFC star Max Holloway is currently visiting Ireland and the American has been particularly impressed with one Dublin landmark, namely Croke Park.

The undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion is currently ranked #4 in the pound-for-pound rankings having finished out 2018 with a sensational TKO win over d Brian Ortega in Toronto, Canada.

Holloway has been documenting his travels in Ireland, having already paid tribute to the 'unmatched quality' of Jameson Whiskey. Today, the 27-year-old documented his visit to Croke Park and thanked the stadium for sharing "the history of Croker with me and teaching me about sportsmanship in Ireland."

 

Croke Park seats 82,000 and they play Irish football, hurling, hand ball and rounders here. There is no pay even at highest levels so players have their own jobs. Teams are the counties you from so when you get older you compete against the same people you did as kids.

Amateur sports but not really exhibition matches. Just about having the pride to represent the best of your community by competing against the best.
