Max Holloway didn't pull any punches when talking about his lack of interest in a rematch with Conor McGregor. 

"That was on a very short list for UFC if everything went well in his last fight and it didn't," Holloway told TMZ Sports about the possibility of a McGregor rematch. "And I don't wanna kick a dog when it's down. At the end of the day, we'll see what happens. We're in a game where everything is about timing. We're about perfect timing. So we'll see how it goes."

McGregor, of course, lost to Dustin Poirier by second-round TKO in January. McGregor did beat Holloway all the way back in by decision, however. 

As for Holloway, he's fresh off a January victory over Calvin Kattar, which snapped a two-fight losing streak. He also suffered defeat at the hands of Poirier in recent years, losing to him by decision in with the UFC's interim lightweight title on the line. 


&#;Conor was the first one that asked me how I was He has heart&#; - Max Holloway

If these two men face off again, it may be when both have a few more miles on the clock.

It feels like a lifetime ago since Max Holloway and Conor McGregor faced off in The Octagon.

Back in August , in Boston, McGregor was a unanimous decision winner over Holloway in a fight that saw both men battle through injuries to go the distance. McGregor's star was on the rise and he would claim interim gold at lbs within two years, and become undisputed champion in December

That loss saw Holloway, aged 21 at the time, slip to in Mixed Martial Arts but he went on to win his next 13 bouts and become UFC featherweight champion. Earlier this year, after health issues cost him the UFC headliner against Khabib Nurmagomedov, Holloway lost for the first time in almost six years when Dustin Poirier took a decision to claim the interim lightweight belt.

Holloway dropped down to featherweight, three months later, and defended his crown against Frankie Edgar. On December 15, he defends his title against Alexander Volkanovski () at UFC in Las Vegas.

Ahead of that fight, Holloway spoke with MMA Fighting about his relationship with McGregor, who is now stepping up to welterweight to take on Donald Cerrone. The Hawaiian says all the sparring between himself and McGregor, over the years, has been "business" and never personal.

He spoke highly of how the Dubliner was quick to reach out with messages of support when, in , health issues saw Holloway miss out on fights with Nurmgomedov and then Brian Ortega. Holloway commented:

"Conor was the first one that asked me [how I was], that tweeted how everybody was saying this stuff but nobody was asking about how I was when the whole [Khabib] thing happened.

"When the July thing happened [with Ortega] and then even walking out to the Frankie Edgar fight, he showed me support. He has a heart."

Holloway did go for health screenings in and early and heart issues have been ruled out. He has been cleared to fight, with little fuss, twice this year.

Having gone the distance against each other, and never took the trash-talking far, McGregor and Holloway do seem to have a bond forged in combat. Holloway is keen to step up to lightweight again but McGregor may well be tied up with welterweight bouts [Cerrone then Jorge Masvidal] in

Meanwhile, No.1 lightweight contender Tony Ferguson has signed his bout agreement for an April 18 tilt with champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

This will be the fifth time the UFC has tried to pair both men off against each other and fight fans will be hoping injuries and weight cut issues do not again intervene.

Watch: what happened when Conor McGregor fought Max Holloway in the UFC

Last night was a big night for former UFC Featherweight champion Max Holloway. He defeated Calvin Kattar in the UFC’s first-ever show on the ABC network, putting together a masterful performance in the process.Max Holloway has stated that he’d be willing to fight Conor McGregor again, so what happened when the Hawaiian took on ‘The Notorious One’ back in ?

Conor McGregor and Max Holloway fought on the first UFC show on Fox Sports 1

Conor McGregor knocked out Marcus Brimage in his UFC debut

Conor McGregor burst onto the UFC scene as a Featherweight back in March , knocking out Marcus Brimage in his debut. It was a massively impressive showing, and the Irishman’s natural charisma immediately marked him out as a potential star.

UFC President Dana White immediately had big plans for Conor McGregor, and booked him to headline the preliminary portion of the UFC’s first card on the new Fox Sports 1 channel in August , facing the UK’s Andy Ogle.

Max Holloway meanwhile had debuted in the UFC just over a year before Conor McGregor, in a losing effort against Dustin Poirier. Just 21 at the time, ‘Blessed’ had then won three more UFC fights in the Featherweight division before dropping a tight split decision to Dennis Bermudez in May

Despite his young age, Max Holloway had already garnered the reputation of a man willing to fight anyone at any time. When Andy Ogle was forced to withdraw from his fight with Conor McGregor with eight weeks to go, the UFC turned to ‘Blessed’, and Holloway accepted the late-notice booking.

What happened when Conor McGregor fought Max Holloway?

Conor McGregor came into his fight with Max Holloway as the betting favourite, despite having far less UFC experience than his opponent.

And the opening round showed exactly why this was the case. Conor McGregor picked at Max Holloway with all kinds of strikes from the outside, looking supremely confident. He used his length and reach to keep the Hawaiian at bay whilst landing everything from uppercuts to wheel kicks.

Max Holloway was clearly not the same striker he is today, and didn’t seem to have much of an answer to Conor McGregor’s attack. However, things changed up dramatically late in the second round.

Conor McGregor uses his ground game for the first time in the UFC

The latter part of the second round saw a curious decision from Conor McGregor. He took Max Holloway down and showed off his ground skills, controlling the Hawaiian. And the third round followed the same pattern, as ‘The Notorious One’ used a ground-and-pound game to outwork ‘Blessed’, eventually picking up a unanimous decision.

It turned out that Conor McGregor had implemented this gameplan as he’d torn his ACL in the second round of the fight. The injury would keep him out of action for almost an entire year, although his name remained in MMA news throughout.

What happened in the aftermath of the fight?

Conor McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo to win the UFC Featherweight title

Conor McGregor moved to in the UFC, and then returned to action in July , beating Diego Brandao. Just 17 months later, he knocked out Jose Aldo to become the UFC’s new Featherweight champion.

Max Holloway meanwhile returned in January and knocked out Will Chope. That was the start of a lengthy fight win streak that saw him win the UFC Featherweight title in , before losing it to Alexander Volkanovski in

So could the two fight again?

Conor McGregor and Max Holloway have largely remained apart since that fight in , but recently, Holloway stated that he’d love to fight McGregor again, claiming it was a fight that would intrigue him.

And with Holloway having fought at Lightweight – where McGregor now competes – in , a rematch between the two would definitely be one of the most fascinating fights that the UFC could book right now.

Will we see it in ? Only time will tell.

On This Day: Conor McGregor vs Max Holloway

Conor McGregor taking on that man 21 year old Max Holloway. Throwing a lot of wild stuff right away. He spend a lot of time in Iceland training with Gunnar Nelson and he he has a very similar style. Oh, look at that front leg hook kick. Where do you see that? Very rare and One of the things that you&#;re seeing in Conor is this karate style stance. It&#;s very unpredictable along with a background in amateur boxing. He&#;s a national amateur boxing champion. And very much as you say shades of Gunner Nelson but just a great fluidity with Conor McGregor and he continues to land upstairs on Max Holloway. And that unpredictable nature of his attack makes Max hesitant. He doesn&#;t know what&#;s coming. It is hard to simulate this type of pressure in training too. Yeah, that jumping switch kick is very unique too. And he throws with no wind up. You see, he&#;s throwing these kicks. There&#;s no switch, there&#;s no step before he throws him. Very much karate style. And hands down. I mean, look where his hand positioning is. He&#;s telling him to hit him. Go ahead, hit me. Oh, high Beautiful uppercut. Good right hand over the top by Max. Max needs to get Conor&#;s respect. And right now, he&#;s just a little confused by all the offense that Conor&#;s throwing his way. He&#;s trying to wheel kick himself but Conor saw it coming and stepped with it. Conor&#;s just so relaxed in there. I mean, it&#;s amazing. This is his second UFC fight. Very high profile and look how calm he is in there. He believes he&#;s immune to pressure and that is so. Head kick. Max is in all sorts of trouble here. And if you&#;re Max Holloway, Joe, I mean, what is the strategy in trying to sort of stem the tide here and mute this offense of Conor McGregor? Well, I mean, I think that what he&#;s gotta do is somehow or another get Conor&#;s respect. He&#;s gotta land something or he&#;s gotta attempt to submission. Almost, now he&#;s free and now Max rolls him over and Max is out. Nicely done by Max. Beautiful take down by McGregor but in the half guard for Max. They&#;re talking to each other. I don&#;t know what they&#;re saying but yeah, I&#;m sure Conor McGregor is very well skilled in psychological warfare as well. He&#;s gotta do something to get out of this mount. Yeah, here that&#;s shifting. He&#;s shifting. He&#;s out. Nicely done by Max Holloway. And as he gets up, he&#;s greeted by a knee from Conor McGregor. So, we are upright again. Head kick. Look at this. Max is going for it. Mcgregor turns the corner, takes him down again, very nice. So, the crowd responding here down the stretch. Conor McGregor with a dominant performance here tonight in Boston against Max Holloway. McGregor by unanimous decision.

Max Holloway vs Conor McGregor 2: What both fighters have said about their potential rematch

Max Holloway and Conor McGregor faced each other on UFC's first show on Fox Sports 1 back in

The Notorious One made headlines with his knockout of Marcus Brimage in his first UFC debut and immediately showed signs of stardom. Holloway, meanwhile, was coming off a tight split decision loss to Dennis Bermudez but had a three-fight win streak prior to that.

Entering as the favorite against his more experienced opponent, Conor McGregor put on a striking display in the first round. McGregor surprisingly took the game to ground in the second and third rounds and picked up a unanimous decision win while showing off his dominant grappling skills.

What Max Holloway and Conor McGregor think of the potential rematch

Max Holloway put on a masterclass in his last UFC outing against Calvin Kattar and expressed his desire to fight Conor McGregor again. Also interested in the rubber match, McGregor told The Mac Life in an interview prior to UFC

“I thought it was a solid performance. He fought an up-and-comer; he done well. I was actually doing an interview and he skateboarded by the window. I was like, ‘Is that Max Holloway?’ He’s obviously hanging around, and fair play to him. He’s definitely in the pipeline for a bout against me. I would happily rematch Max, and after a performance like that, he’s put himself right up there.”

While they had previously faced each other at featherweight, McGregor was insistent on the rematch taking place at lightweight.

However, the possibility of a rematch seems to have weakened after McGregor's lackluster performance against Dustin Poirier at UFC

But Max Holloway is still interested in fighting Conor McGregor. In an episode of Food Truck Diaries, Max Holloway told Brendan Schaub:

“I’m not here to kick a man while he’s down, but I think that fight with me and Conor is on a very short list with the UFC. If he was to win the fight (with Poirier) I think it would have been a little bit different, a little bit greater,” Holloway said.

Holloway hinted he is ready to fight McGregor when the Irishman is back to his best.

“I think that fight would have happened, but we’ve got nothing but time. He’s not going nowhere, I’m not going nowhere. Build the man back up, I’m going to keep doing my thing, let him do his thing… The UFC, we had talks here and there about it. It’s on a very short list for the UFC and I’m just excited for it.”

I inserted a member into her mouth and began to push it deeper into her throat. At the same time, I held her head with my hands, so it turned out that it was not she who was sucking my. Dick, but I was fucking her in her mouth.

Now discussing:

Drool hung, in a shiny path, from the mouth to the head of the dick. God, and again she swallowed this monster with her mouth and made a few more frictions with her mouth. Oh, baby, she said in a whisper, your depraved mother will return to you later.

Cindy got up, covered her son with a blanket and went up to her husband's bedroom. Ronnie opened his eyes.
