In his six fights inside the Octagon, interim UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has only been to a decision once. At UFC Fight Night 26 in August 2013, 21-year-old Max Holloway took McGregor the distance in a fight where both fighters suffered injuries.
In the opening round, Holloway injured his ankle. Later in the fight, McGregor tore his ACL. It wasn’t the typical performance from either of them, but McGregor came away with a unanimous decision win.
McGregor is scheduled to face 145-pound champion Jose Aldo on Dec. 12 in a title unification bout and has stated that a move up to the lightweight division is likely right around the corner. The now 23-year-old Holloway envisions an eventual move to the 155-pound weight class himself and sees multiple fights against McGregor in his future.
“Everybody asks me about that fight. I’m only 23. I turn 24 at the end of the year. I’m probably going to go up in weight. Me and Conor are probably going to fight a bunch of times,” said Holloway during a recent Q&A session with fans.
