Conor McGregor, the former two-division champion, has responded to Max Holloway’s call for a rematch. Conor has been preparing for his UFC return, set against Michael Chandler, after his recovery post a fatal leg injury. Though there have been doubts regarding the Irishman’s future in the MMA, Conor seems to be highly motivated and has responded to Max Holloway’s call for a rematch. 

Responding to Max’s call out, the Irishman took to his Twitter after the Hawaiian-native stated that he would like a rematch with Conor. Holloway, ‘Blessed’ bounced back in the win segment defeating Arnold Allen in 2022. Post the win, he said that he would like to have a rematch with Conor before he announces his retirement. McGregor accepted the fight and claimed by replying that he isn’t retiring. 

Responding to a tweet by a fan, he said, “I’m never retiring so we defo fighting, lad.” Max Holloway and McGregor made it to the octagon in 2013, which was Holloway’s second UFC bout. The bout ended in a decision, with Conor winning the bout. All of Conor’s wins have come via a finish, but Holloway is the only player who has lost to him via decision. 

Notably, in a recent episode of The MMA Hour, Holloway recalled his rivalry with Conor and said, “I would love to fight Conor, I was the only guy that took Conor to a decision at 145...I know he wants to come back, but that’d be a fight that [would be] super interesting, super fun. A lot of a lot of questions." 

Meanwhile, Conor is all set to make his comeback in the UFC after a recovery after one year following a leg injury. Earlier, the UFC announced that ‘The Notorious’ will fight a pay-per-view event against Michael Chandler.
