Riding an eight-fight winning streak, Waianae high school graduate Max “Blessed” Holloway is ready for the toughest opponent of his life.

The 4th-ranked UFC featherweight has yet to face off with a top-five fighter, but is willing to take on any of the featherweight division’s top contenders.

Holloway is disappointed that numerous reports have the 145-pound champion, Conor McGregor, scheduled for a rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 200 on July 9.

“I’m still looking to get on that card,” Holloway told KHON2 MMA analyst Frank Trigg. “Hopefully that fight doesn’t go through, because that would put the 145-pound division on hold. But if it does, why not give an interim belt? Why not give me and Frankie (Edgar), two of the top contenders, or me and (Jose) Aldo? I don’t care. I’ll fight any one of them.”

The bout would prolong the drought of McGregor’s title defense, which has gone undefended since December. Currently, Holloway is the only fighter to ever take McGregor to a decision, during a unanimous decision loss to the Irishman in 2013.

“I want to fight him bad. To get to try and avenge a loss, and then to try and get a gold belt, it would be huge for the Hawaiians,” Holloway said.

Even though Holloway would like to jump back into the octagon sooner rather than later, he is still campaigning for a UFC Hawaii event.

With BJ Penn making a comeback from retirement at the 145-pound division, Holloway doesn’t exclude the chance at a showdown on Oahu.

“I guess it would be that old-fashioned island versus an island thing,” he said. “At the end of the day, it is what it is, whatever UFC wants. If they want that fight, hey who am I to tell UFC no? They sign my check and whoever they put in front of me, I’m going to fight them.”

Holloway was cleared Monday to begin sparring after missing three months with a hand injury.
