His return to the UFC has prompted the UFC featherweight king Max Holloway who sends warnin to “Notorious” telling him to stay away from 145 pounds. Conor McGregor had ones defeated the Max Holloway, four years ago but the Hawaiian believes he could really defeat McGregor if chance is given for a rematch.

“There’s this fairytale,” Holloway said to MMA Tonight on SiriusXM Rush. “Everybody’s talking about him as the champion and this and that but his last four fights he’s 2-2 , one of them being questionable. He could have been 1-3 right now if we’re being totally honest. At the end of the day, there’s this fairytale to him and this fairytale breaks if he fights someone like me and I beat him.”

Max Holloway has ruled the featherweight, having gone eleven fights without a loss, with big opponents including Aldo and former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and could be the perfect match for the Irish UFC king in his return from his money match with Floyd Mayweather.

“He runs his mouth, he talks the talk, and he’s been walking the walk, so touché to him,” Holloway admitted. “At the end of the day, when I talk I’m not saying stuff to try and hurt your feelings. When I speak, I speak facts and if you’re getting mad, it’s because you know it’s the truth. That guy tries to push it off a little bit more in a WWE way and that’s him, that’s fair play to him. He can do it, I can’t do that. I’m pretty sure that if a lot of people could do it, we’d be doing it. You can’t and you’ve got to respect someone like that.

“He does it his way, I’m doing it my way. When I start running my mouth I start running facts, I start giving guys numbers, I start giving guys ideas of where I come from and where I work. He just kind of wants to get under your skin but you can’t be mad at the guy, that’s his personality. I’m not a hater. I respect him. He’s on his grind and he’s using it and he’s getting his, so fair play to him.”

The fight between Holloway and McGregor might not really come to fruition as McGregor has big names in the Lightweight division to destroy, names which include trilogy fight with Nate Diaz and prospective title fights opposite top contenders like Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and Justin Gaethje but a fight with Holloway will really be a test for McGregor, as the Hawaiian has improved since their fight back in 2013.

“At the end of the day, they want their fairytale to end, they know who to call but they don’t want to,” Holloway proclaimed. “They want to run off into the sunset and that’s them.”
