UFC interim featherweight champion Max Holloway is already building up the expected fight with the undisputed featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
With his humorous #WheresJoseWaldo campaign launched upon winning the interim title in the five-round fight against Anthony Pettis, the young and active Hawaiian is making his case for what is behind his UFC title.
“Someone pointed something crazy out to me, man,” Holloway told FloCombat. “I am on a 10 fight-winning streak and I have more wins than this guy has fights in the UFC. And this guy was our former champion? Come on, man. People talking out saying my interim title is fake, but the last time I checked I’m the one who actually fought for my title. The sh*t didn’t get handed to me twice like this other guy.
“Some of these fighters, when the UFC calls they don’t answer. When Dana [White], Joe [Silva] or Sean [Shelby] call they don’t pick up because they don’t want to fight or they get the one dial tone and all they hear is ‘Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now?’”
The interim champion proudly promoting his hashtag campaign along with his “Cinemax” fans is seeing a bright future coming and is advising some sponsors to take notice.
“When Dana calls me I answer every damn time,” Holloway stated. “You know that and the fans all know that is true. Verizon needs to sponsor this new champ right now because I’m not one of those ‘Can you hear me now?’ fighters. Hey Verizon….give your boy a call and get in on the ground floor because the prices are going to blow up soon.”
