Max Holloway spoke about plans for a fun fight for the title of Islam Makhachev after winning the UFC 300

Max Holloway recently opened up about a potential title clash against Islam Makhachev and noted that it could become reality.

The former featherweight champion is preparing to make another attempt at 155 pounds as he is scheduled to challenge Justin Gaethje for his ‘BMF’ title at UFC 300. Max Holloway has clapped back at the criticism regarding his decision to move up for a clash with ‘The Highlight’ and will have an opportunity to possibly move into title contention if he becomes the ‘BMF’ title holder.

While speaking to Kevin Iole, ‘Blessed’ indicated that his move to 155 pounds might not be for only one fight and mentioned that there are plenty of options for him should he remain at lightweight following UFC 300. Max Holloway said:

“I’m in a situation, I’m in a place where first things first is [Justin] Gaethje but if I can go out there and get my hand raised [at UFC 300] like we plan on doing, there’s a lot of fights that can be there for us. And one of them being the [155-pound] champ, which I think would be a fun one.”

It will be interesting to see whether Max Holloway vs. Islam Makhachev materializes as a win over the No. 2-ranked lightweight could certainly result in ‘Blessed’ being in the lightweight title picture.
