UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway doesn’t plan to defend his UFC title until he gets a better contract.
In his last fight, Holloway won the UFC title after defeated Jose Aldo by TKO in June. During a recent interview, Holloway revealed that his fight with Aldo was the last on his UFC contract. Holloway doesn’t plan to fight again until he is paid what he believes he deserves.
“Now we’re just taking it one step at a time. I can’t force something. I’m not going to rush something. I’m not going to get mad over something that I have no control over,” Holloway said. “Like I said, I can control my feelings and that’s what I am focusing on, myself. It’s only giving me more time to get better, you know? Don’t poke the bear. They’re poking at me right now, but they’re going to see on fight night, so I can’t wait. I’m only getting better.
“I’m just asking for a fair shake. You see a lot of these guys, a lot of these other champions making what they’re making. I’m not trying to take anything away from them, but I feel like I’m one of the more exciting fighters under contract in the UFC. At the end of the day, I’m the king. I’m in my throne, you know? If you want to come see me, come see me.”
