Ilia Topuria is confident he will be the first person to knock out Max Holloway

UFC featherweight champion Ilia Topuria is confident he will be the first person to knock out Max Holloway should they fight next time out.

Holloway is the No. 1 contender at featherweight and all signs point to that fight happening next time out. But, the bout is still not booked which caused Ilia Topuria and Max Holloway to take shots at one another on social media.

After Topuria claimed Holloway wasn’t going to fight him, which the Hawaiian said isn’t sure, the featherweight champ sent a warning to ‘Blessed’ ahead of the potential fight.

“God bless you brother. Nothing against you! But it brings me great joy to be the first to disconnect you.. it seems so fun,” Topuria wrote on social media.

Holloway has proven to have a durable chin as he has never been knocked out or dropped. But, Topuria is confident his power is different and is confident he won’t just beat Holloway but will KO him.

After Topuria’s comment, Holloway took to social media to respond to Ilia Topuria and vows to KO him.

“God bless brother. Same here my man. You should disconnect from social media. I know it seems fun but it’s really not it,” Holloway responded.

Currently, Ilia Topuria vs. Max Holloway is not booked but it is one of the biggest fights to make and the hope is it will come to fruition this year.
