Conor Mcgregor vs Max Holloway 2?
Conor McGregor and Max Holloway ever since the first fight have hinted about their second fight. Both the fighters on several occasions have shown interest in a rematch. Eight years since their first battle, UFC has never initiated a second fight between them. During his fight week of UFC 257, Conor Mcgregor talked about his second fight against Max Holloway.
“I would happily rematch Max, and after a performance like that, he’s put himself right up there. He’s a tall lad,” McGregor said back in January to The Mac Life. “He’s taller than me, so he could build up. He’s only fought at 155 once. It was against Dustin. He was a bit outpowered, but he could certainly do it. Against other lightweights? You never know. But the rematch would be 155, for sure.”
Conor Mcgregor is coming off two back-to-back losses in the UFC. He lost his last two fights against Dustin Poirier. The duo fought twice in a year at UFC 257 and at UFC 264. Dustin Poirier won the rematch fight via KO in the second round. Poirier won the third fight by TKO. Conor had won their first fight back in 2014. Max Holloway is coming off a dominant win over Calvin Kattar at the UFC event on ABC. He set up multiple striking records in that fight.
