Max Holloway sends out a stern message to the UFC featherweight division…
Newly crowned undisputed UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway made a big splash at UFC 212. Entering the octagon with the interim belt, ‘Blessed’ left with the unified title by knocking out the legend Jose Aldo.
Since that epic win, Holloway has made clear his intentions for the title; defend and break records.
Holloway Warns The Division
Unlike Conor McGregor before him, Max Holloway vows to stay and clear out the division at 145 pounds. As per MMAMania.com, the Hawaiian boss says he has no interest in moving up a weight class:
“At the end of the day, I will fight anybody, I don’t care. I really want to sit with Dana and my management first, figure it out, but I’m a fighter and I will fight anybody,” said Holloway during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour.
“I’m not racing through my division, I’m cleaning it out. If I haven’t fought you, get ready because it’s coming. And If I did fight you, get emotionally ready because you know what’s going to happen again,” he added. “A storm is coming and I’m not dodging anybody. I fought one of them and I wanted to fight the other guy before, so, I’ll sit with Dana, figure out our situation and see what UFC wants to do. I want Hawaii so hopefully we can get that done, too.”
“The division is under new management. It’s open 24/7, seven days a week. It’s the only place you can come see me, leave with a smile and take that ‘L’ with you. And if you want to come back again, you’ll leave with two ‘Ls.’ It will be a good time,”
“Like I said before, I’ma say it again. That guy was the 2015 champ. This is called the year 2017 right now and I’m the champ,” Holloway said about McGregor. “If he wants to come back down, he can come and get it. But if not, it is what it is.”
“He’s a guy who is always looking over the fence, always trying to look for the next great thing or whatever. Demetrious Johnson, he finds this motivation to keep defending. It takes a special human being to do that, and that’s me. I want to defend my throne. I want my fans to know and love me because I want to defend this. I want to show I’m the champ.”
“Come try to take over my village — off with your head, that’s what I’m going to do. This guy is always trying to look for the bigger thing, and that’s him. Good for him. At the end of the day, I’m not going to chase him around.
“I’m not going to talk about someone who isn’t talking about me. He gets to choose his fights, why will I cry or beg him to fight me? Get the hell out of here with that s—t. He should beg to fight me now.”
“I’m coming to the point where people are going to ask me to fight. I ain’t asking anyone to fight. I’ve got my throne. If he wants it, come see me.”
