Max Holloway je u poslednjoj borbi osvojio pojas perolake kategorije UFC-a, kada je završio Jose Alda i tako postao šampion. Holloway se borio sa Conorom McGregorom u McGregorovoj drugoj borbi u UFC-u od kojeg je poražen odlukom sudija nakon tri runde.
Sada je Holloway izjavio u “The MMA Hour-u ” da ga j UFC pitao da li bi on odradio revanš sa Conorom McGregorom ali ovaj put u lakoj kategoriji.
If [the fight with Conor McGregor] happens, it happens. He said 155. When we were talking about the contract, UFC came to me and they were talking about 155. They also talked to me about Conor a little bit. They were asking me about it and then they came to me with the Frankie [Edgar] fight and it was weird. We got the Frankie fight, like I said, I wanted this a year ago. Now, we got to fight Frankie, he’s got the fight now. When we were talking about the contract they said, ‘What about  would you go up there?’ Then they asked about Conor. If they wanted me to go up there and fight him, I’d fight him any day. They kept talking about it, but at the end of the day Frankie was the one.
Holloway ima jednu borbu pred sobom i to protiv Frankie Edgara sa kojim će se suočiti na UFC218.
