New BMF champion, Max Holloway goes through a great phase in his career after a brutal knockout Justin gaethje No. UFC 300. Despite having some options to choose regarding his next step in the organization, the Hawaiian did not hide the fact that the biggest fight to be had at the moment would be a rematch against Conor McGregor, as the Irishman's return is official.

“It would be hard not to say that with him finally being announced that he's actually fighting, (ideally) Conor (vs. Holloway) 2. That's the biggest fight, I think,” Holloway told Rob DeMello.

By continuing his speech, the Hawaiian recognized that the natural path for his legacy is to face Ilia Topuria to follow.

“Legacy, in ideal terms, would be trying to return to a title. I have to go with [Ilia] Topuria, you know. He defeated the man I couldn't analyze. We will see. We're having a little discussion about Bible verses on Twitter right now, so you know, life is good. It looks like he will be next”, he concluded.

Rivals in 2013, Holloway and Conor faced each other at the beginning of their careers. On that occasion, the Irishman surpassed the Hawaiian's skills and triumphed by unanimous decision from the judges after a three-round battle. Since then, Max has been hoping to try to get revenge for the setback he suffered.
