Dana White: ‘Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway 3 makes sense’
Former featherweight champion Max Holloway has lost twice to the man that took his belt and current titleholder Alexander Volkanovski. Both fights went the distance and the second ended in a split decision that many thought Holloway won.
Holloway is the top ranked 145-pound contender and just defeated No. 3 ranked Yair Rodriguez in the UFC Vegas 42 main event on Saturday. Was it enough to warrant a trilogy fight with Volkanovski? UFC president Dana White thinks it was.
“Yeah,” White said when asked if Volkanovski vs. Holloway 3 would be a fight that the organization would be willing to make.
“It’s one of those things. They (Volkanovski and Holloway’s first two bouts) were razor-thin. He (Holloway) comes in and puts on a performance like this.”
Although Volkanovski holds two decision wins over Holloway, White thinks the two top featherweights have unfinished business.
“This is a guy that Volkanovski’s going to have to just get him out of the way and do it again,” White said during the UFC Vegas 42 Post-fight Press Conference at the UFC Apex on Saturday.
