Despite losing his 145lb title to Alexander Volkanovski at the end of 2019, Holloway, who recently dismantled Calvin Kattar finally looks to be back to his best.

Best known for his pin-point striking and relentless pace pushing, the Hawaiian born mixed martial artist is a huge favourite among fight fans.

Speaking in a recent interview with Brendan Schaub, ‘Blessed’ has lifted the lid on what could be in store for him in the near future.

Addressing speculation he and McGregor could face-off in a rematch following the pair’s bout in 2013 which ended in the Irish superstar claiming a decision win, Holloway said: “I’m not here to kick a man while he’s down, but I think that fight with me and Conor is on a very short list with the UFC.

“If he was to win the fight (with Poirier) I think it would have been a little bit different, a little bit greater.

“I think that fight would have happened, but we’ve got nothing but time.

“He’s not going nowhere, I’m not going nowhere. Build the man back up, I’m going to keep doing my thing, let him do his thing… The UFC, we had talks here and there about it. It’s on a very shortlist for the UFC and I’m just excited for it.”
