Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, considered one of the greatest fighters in the division’s history, believes he’s in position for a fight with Irish MMA superstar Conor McGregor. Holloway (22-6) has fought McGregor (22-6) once before, suffering a decision loss to the Irishman in the featherweight division in 2013. The Hawaiian is slated to fight Mexico‘s Yair Rodriguez inside the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas this Saturday and believes a win could set up a rematch with McGregor – most likely at lightweight, where McGregor has spent the bulk of his recent career. “We’re always on the shortlist for Conor,” Holloway said on The MMA Hour on Monday. “We’ll see what happens,” he continued. “At the end of the day, obviously, Conor wants Dustin [Poirier], or he wants Nate [Diaz], or whatever. But anybody at ‘55 [lightweight] or ‘45 [featherweight] after those guys, my name pops up. “You can go call [UFC Chief Business Officer] Hunter [Campbell] right now, ask him who can sell, who’s gonna sell numbers with Conor, and they’re going to drop my name all the time. At the end of the day, I’m always on the shortlist for Conor, so we’ll see what happens.” ONE’s Phogat hopes she can live up to McGregor’s expectations A potential rematch with McGregor would be huge for Holloway, but that’s not the only item on the menu for the 29-year-old. He also believes he‘s well-positioned for a fight with reigning UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, who he defeated by TKO at featherweight in 2015, and even teased a move to the boxing ring. “I got a win over the 155 [pound] champ right now,” he said. “I’m the best boxer in the UFC, so use your imagination my friends. It’s a wild world today.” The immediate priority for Holloway, of course, is his imminent fight with Rodriguez, who is considered one of the most unpredictable and dynamic strikers in all of MMA. “First things first, I have a fight on November 13th, and we’ll go from there,” he said. Holloway is currently riding a jaw-dropping decision win over Calvin Kattar, which saw him shatter multiple UFC records including the single-fight records for most strikes landed and attempted. That victory separated him from a pair of razor-close decision losses to Australia‘s Alexander Volkanovski, the first of which ended his reign as UFC featherweight champion. UFC: Chandler calls out McGregor, gets a quick response Highlights of Holloway’s CV include victories over an impressive list of current and former champions in Frankie Edgar, Jose Aldo, Anthony Pettis, and Charles Oliveira, as well as top talents like Brian Ortega, Ricardo Lamas, Jeremy Stephens, and Cub Swanson. McGregor, meanwhile, is riding back-to-back stoppage losses to Dustin Poirier at lightweight, the latter of which left him with a broken leg. In his previous fight, he defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone by first-round TKO at welterweight. McGregor made history in 2015 and 2016, becoming the first fighter in UFC history to hold titles in two weight classes concurrently, first knocking out Jose Aldo to win featherweight gold, and later knocking out Eddie Alvarez to win the strap at lightweight.
