Max Holloway admitted he would love a rematch against Conor McGregor and recalled the ‘cool’ moment the pair shared back in 2013.
The pair shared the Octagon a long time ago now in what was just the Notorious’ second fight in the UFC following his move for Cage Warriors.

The fight went the distance with the Irish fighter getting the decision but a lot has happened since then.
Holloway was just 21 at the time of the defeat and went on an incredible run of 13 consecutive UFC wins, including back-to-back victories against Jose Aldo.
The Hawaiian fighter is looking to stop a two-fight losing streak at Fight Island on Saturday when he faces Calvin Kattar but said a rematch with McGregor ‘intrigues’ him.
“I’m a competitor. I want to compete,” the former featherweight champion said. “People consider him [to be] one of the best guys in our sport. You know what I mean? Until today.

“I can’t wait. As a competitor, I’d love to [rematch him]. That was one of the fights that intrigues me.
“And like you said, we fought [such] a long time ago. And he knows that too.
He added: “At the end of the day, like I said, first thing’s first, we’ve got Kattar. We’ll figure it out after this.”
Holloway also recalled a nice moment the pair shared right before their weigh-in back in 2013.

He added: “He was super cool. I mean, like, the dude, like… we’d get in each other’s faces for weigh-ins.
“But right before the weigh-ins, we’re in the back and we’re standing next to each other because you’re like this (puts his forefingers together) before you walk out.
“And he’s like, ‘Hey.’ I told him, ‘Hey, nice shorts.’ And he’s like, ‘You too.’
“We had some cool looking shorts on at the time. And then that’s it. The dude is a good guy.”
