What Happens with Max Holloway in 2023?

Kansas City Main Event Max Holloway vs Arnold Allen was a great fight beginning to end. Interesting fight for both fighters as Max makes his awaited return and Arnold Allen matched up in his toughest test by far.

Max Holloway answered fans & reporters questions about losing a step because of the five round battles and long UFC career. Second best performance behind Kattar win.

Arnold Allen lost against Max Holloway but stood toe to toe with one of the best featherweights ever.

What happens with Max Holloway in 2023. Really don’t want to see next fight appear in 2024.

Max Holloway Next Option?

Max Holloway is back having one of his best performances ever. Watching his fight against Arnold Allen multiple times respecting his mastery at close distance fighting and volume striking.

Looking forward to watching Holloway’s next fight hope we don’t see one year layoff. What’s next for him?

In tough situation right now as Alexander Volkanovski dominated Max Holloway in the trilogy fight, answered all the questions on the controversial victories. Dana White less likely to schedule fourth fight unless it makes sense.

Korean Zombie Personal Fight

Post fight Kansas City press conference talked about fighting “Korean Zombie” in Australia.

“Korean Zombie, that is the only guy in my time, with the older guys, that I didn’t get to fight — I would love that fight,” Holloway told MMAmania.com. “There’s a fight in my agent’s country, Australia, coming up. Australia’s supposed to be happening sometime, we don’t know when. And if Korean Zombie wants to get it, he can get it. He can get it. https://www.mmamania.com/2023/4/16/23685173/max-holloway-eyeing-the-korean-zombie-in-australia-later-in-2023-ufc-kansas-city

Max Holloway bucket fight is Korean Zombie, Holloway might get his wish granted from the UFC since he’s always been great champion representing UFC the right way.

Business wise Max Holloway vs Korean Zombie may not be convincing for UFC as no disrespect to Korean Zombie but he’s no longer making championship run. In addition tough losses to Alexander Volkanovski, Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez.

On the other hand Max Holloway vs Korean Zombie is fight of the night, Co Main Event PPV or UFC Fight Night headliner. Fight sells itself and no doubt will be absolute war. Perfect matchup for Max Holloway to successfully land infinite amount of strikes landed.

Winner of Topuria vs Emmett

Ilia Topuria vs Josh Emmett scheduled fight June 24th Jacksonville. Top ten matchup as UFC giving Ilia Topuria his first “true test” against former title challenger and top five featherweight.

Josh Emmett can return back to win column by putting first blemish on Ilia Topuria’s undefeated record. Defeating the dark horse of the UFC Featherweight Division.

Winner of Topuria vs Emmett gets the opportunity to face Max Holloway.

Each fight makes sense to Max Holloway. Ilia Topuria dominates Emmett, finishes him in the early rounds and calls out Max Holloway post fight UFC will schedule that fight in 2023. Topuria skips ahead of the line and replaces Josh Emmett number five ranking.

Josh Emmett out of the top five featherweights currently is the only fighter Max hasn’t fought. Depending how Emmett performs and wins against Topuria this can be fun interesting fight to watch.

Sit and Wait

Last option is sit and wait for Alexander Volkanovski vs Yair Rodriguez. Fourth fight with Volkansovski or second fight with Yair Rodriguez.

Reasons behind sitting and waiting is because Max defeated all of the top five featherweights besides Josh Emmett with great performances. Second reason is because he’s in the perfect spot by having one of his best performances . Pointless to potentially lose and lose the opportunity to challenge for title.
