He is looking to get a shot at the championship and regain his title. Many believed ‘Blessed‘ won his second fight against the current champion, Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 251. The decision went against him, unfortunately. Volkanovski is scheduled to face Brian Ortega next.

Holloway, given he wins a fight in the meantime, is no doubt the next in line for a title shot. When he eventually returns is not confirmed as of now. But, one can expect him to take on a cream of the crop contender like ‘El Pantera’ at that time.
