Max Holloway locked up the interim featherweight title last night at UFC 206, but the surging fighter believes it may turn into the undisputed championship…
Holloway took on Anthony Pettis in the main event, and he proceeded to finish the former lightweight champ with strikes in round three. As a result, the Hawaiian fighter has earned a bout with the former, but now reigning champ again, Jose Aldo.
“Blessed” has been campaigning hard for a bout with Aldo for sometime, and he’s also accused the Brazlian star of ducking him. After his win on Saturday, Holloway told the media the following (quote via MMA Junkie):
“Like I said, this is my golden ticket,” Holloway said. “For all I know, that mother(expletive) (Aldo) is always getting hurt and pulling out. This might as well have been the true belt. Most true fans know the story.”
It looks like the UFC is hoping to book Aldo – Holloway for its February 11th card in Brooklyn, New York. But, while discussing that possibility, Holloway took another shot at Aldo.
“I don’t want to give up my son’s birthday and Christmas for Feb. 11, and (Aldo) don’t show up,” Holloway relayed. “This guy has a knack for not showing up to the fights.”
While it remains to be see if that fight goes down at UFC 208, it certainly looks like Aldo and Holloway will throw down in the coming months. Can the legendary Aldo put a halt to Holloway’s ten fight winning streak?
