Max Holloway Just Used Conor McGregor’s Own Words Against Him

UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and UFC superstar Conor McGregor have formed a bit of a rivalry over the years. Now the title holder has decided to use McGregor’s own words against him.

Holloway’s most recent loss inside the octagon was against none other than “Notorious,” giving the UFC featherweight title holder motivation for a rematch. Beyond that, Holloway went on to eventually earn the featherweight belt vacated by McGregor.

Consequently, the two mixed martial arts warriors often trade heated words over social media. Of course, Conor McGregor has not competed inside the octagon since 2016.

The fighter earned the UFC featherweight title, before moving up in weight to defeat Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt. McGregor then took a hiatus from the octagon to make his professional boxing debut in 2017.

“Notorious” has never defended his titles. Speaking with Daniel Cormier and Tyron Woodley on UFC on FOX, Max Holloway decided to offer his thoughts on Conor McGregor. Quoting McGregor, Holloway stated “If you’re fit to fight, defend your belt.” McGregor has made the record for the longest period of not defending a UFC title without cause of injury.
