Max Holloway vs Conor McGregor 2- the fight to make?

During his run in the featherweight division, McGregor took on a young and extremely inexperienced Max Holloway in his second fight in the UFC. ‘The Notorious’ earned a unanimous decision win and continued on with his charge at 145-pounds. 

For Holloway, it was a turning point in his career. The fight against ‘The Notorious’ was his second consecutive loss in the UFC. After which he went on a 13-fight win streak that included a title win and two defenses. 

Eight years on, a lot has changed. McGregor and Holloway are no longer in the same weight class. ‘Blessed’ has a fight coming up in a few weeks when he takes on Yair Rodriguez. The common consensus is that a win over Rodriguez would land him a title shot against a familiar face in Alexander Volkanovski. It appears as though Holloway has set his sights on returning for a fight in March.
