Holloway is set to face Gaethje for the BMF title on the main card of UFC 300 in a highly anticipated bout. The Hawaiian is moving up to lightweight for the second time as he previously dropped a decision to Dustin Poirier in 2019 for the interim lightweight title.

In the fight against Poirier, the size played a role, but this time around, Max Holloway says he will be a full-sized lightweight come Saturday night at UFC 300.

“It was like it was a big 145er in there (against Poirier), you know?” For the Gaethje fight, we got some time. I’m putting on some weight and I’m getting big. I’m feeling good, I’m feeling strong. And I can’t wait for the world to see,” Holloway said to

With Max Holloway saying he will be a full-sized lightweight in there, he has confidence he will get his hand raised. The Hawaiian knows beating Justin Gaethje will be tough, as the Hawaiian is expecting this fight to eventually find its way into the Hall of Fame.

“I really want my undisputed (featherweight) title back. Then, maybe, we can come back up. But I mean, if (UFC matchmakers) give you a (lightweight) title shot right after this one, what do you say? First things first, and that’s Justin Gaethje. I’m locked in on him because I got to get through him to see the future… At the end of the day, he’s a future Hall of Famer,” Holloway said. “I feel like I might be a future Hall of Famer. This is a Hall of Fame fight. And if you want to be the best guy, you’ve got to fight the best guys.”

If Holloway beats Gaethje at UFC 300, he could be in line to get a title shot at lightweight. But, the Hawaiian could also return to the featherweight division and face Ilia Topuria for the featherweight title.
