UFC featherweight Max Holloway came out with a loss when he went up against, now, interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor, but would like to give it another go.
Holloway has been on a tear of late and will face off with Charles Oliveira at this weekends’ UFC Fight Night 74. Holloway knows he has business to take of on Sunday, but admits he would love another crack at the Irishmen.
Here’s what he told MMA OddsBreaker:
“I can’t sit over here and say he (McGregor) is not the real deal. He has been doing so much for the sport and doing awesome. At the end of the day, I want my rematch because I believe I can beat him. I believe I’m the best fighter in the world. That’s my beliefs and that’s what got me here. I can’t wait to rematch that guy. I’m not saying that when we fight again, I’m going to win and this and that, I’m just saying that — everybody was saying the first fight was good, and I should be happy I went to a decision with him. That’s being happy in second place or being a loser. I don’t want to be a loser, I want to be a winner. I work too hard to not be one. I want to rematch him and see how it goes. It should be great, The first fight was great, the second will be awesome. If UFC wants to talk numbers and their is big hype for McGregor vs. Holloway 2, let’s see what happens.”
