the love he has for his son is the sweetest thing. proper father son relationship!!


Hawaiian’s have the nicest tat’s


People they probably somehow tranferred some videos from the regular GQ channel to GQ sports channel thats why all comments were lost.

Sean Beads

Max has top 3 of the worst tattoos on the roster

Adam House

His back tattoo only took 4 hours? Jeez I thought each wing would be at least 8 hours minimum

MoMo_ Beatz

"The world needs peace" continues to knock brain cells out if opponents...

Brenna Uyeda

Dang, McLovin's fake ID says Momona St, but there's no such thing. Max's street is real though.

ari arkatama



Those tattoos are atrocious


Gotta love these humble people that can still end your life with a single headkick.


What's up with the comment section?



Ron Thunders

i like how mad is about his religion. 8 think thats how all religious people should be in that they dont try toforce anything down anyone’s throat and its all about how the person feels individually.


Who is here after he got robbed in the second Volkanovski fight?

Hidden Shadows

I like the concept for the wings tatts and the chest piece


Can we get Conor McGregor on here?


What he said in the intro is a fact I just recently got another tattoo and was just saying a while ago I’m chill for a little bit on tats and now I have another idea for a tattoo and going to get it next week

Cristiano Ronaldo

Good advice at the end. If you're getting a tattoo it's gonna be worth waiting for and worth paying for.

Wtf. 10 comments??

sonic slaughter

How can you not love both of these guys fighting tonight? They are both humble, they have gentle souls but tough minds and fierce spirits and have overcome a lot. Having the fighters do the tattoo tour was a great idea and makes me want to watch it more in the future.


Ahhhhh I was praying you wouldn’t sell out from Jesus. You claim to know God, but your heart is far from Him. #repent

Ron Thunders

i would hate to be blessed by this man

Oskari Rintamäki

Ok these guys keep saying that they have these awesome tattoo artists that are booked for months and years. They tell you to do your research etc. These tattoos are so bad.

Guillaume Larue

only 4 hours for the wings. thought it would take much longer

MagicUK 0161

Max holloway is one of baddest warriors on the planet #RESPECT

I hate tats, but his chest piece is pretty dope, actually.


Imagine complaining about the pain of tattoos when you're a UFC fighter lol, you'd think a tattoo would be nothing to him.
