The Case for Max Holloway vs. Ankalaev: A Call to Action

UFC fighter Max Holloway is a beloved featherweight champion who has only lost to Alexander Volkanovski in the past several years. Despite his stature, he is among the tallest and largest UFC featherweights, with a leg reach longer than former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

In response to this revelation, Holloway joked about weighing 205 pounds, the light heavyweight limit in the UFC. This led to various fan reactions, with some fans suggesting matchups against top light heavyweights like Alex Pereira, Magomedov Ankalaev, and even former heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

As for his next fight, Holloway is aiming to recapture the UFC featherweight title. However, with Volkanovski holding that title, Holloway has considered fighting outside of his division, including a possible lightweight bout against reigning ‘BMF’ champion Justin Gaethje.

Overall, Holloway’s future in the UFC remains uncertain as he navigates his options for his next fight.
