Present at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas (USA), Ilia Topuria was able to watch the great performance of Max Holloway in contention for the organization's BMF title. Upon witnessing the Hawaiian's knockout over Justin gaethje, the Spanish-Georgian was unable to hide from the cameras, which captured his surprised reaction to the feat of his possible next opponent.

Current featherweight champion (up to 65,7kg.) Ilia Topuria hopes to defend his belt soon. After Holloway's victory, the athlete did not hesitate to show interest in facing him in his first title defense in the organization. Still without a decision made official by Ultimate, the fighter has other suitable scenarios for his next fight, such as an immediate rematch Alexander Volkanovsky.

After a devastating victory, Holloway did not rule out returning to the featherweight division, looking to regain the title he lost to Volkanovski. Despite his desire, the athlete is now committed to the BMF title, which could be put up for grabs if Ultimate elects an athlete deserving of the organization's 'thickest' status.
