Max Holloway is blazing hot on an eight-fight win streak in the UFC. The young Hawaiian is looking to up his streak to nine at UFC 199 as he is set to face Ricardo Lamas this weekend.

Holloway has the third-longest winning streak among active fighters, behind Jon Jones’ 13-fight win streak and Demetrious Johnson’s 10-fight win streak, according to stats from MMA Junkie. Holloway and his eight-fight winning streak mark the first time a UFC fighter has won eight bouts in a row and has not fought for a UFC title.

Holloway also remarkably has the most wins in the UFC featherweight division’s history with 10 wins.
