Current UFC Interim Featherweight Champion Max Holloway hasn’t competed since defeating former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis for the gold at UFC 206.
Holloway, who currently is sitting on the sidelines waiting for his next fight, will be appearing on a big screen near you as he has a role in the movie “Den Of Thieves.”
“I just got a deal, the movie name is Den of Thieves,” Holloway told Fox Sports 1. “The three main guys are 50 Cent, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Gerard Butler. Next week is my first shoot. I’ll be out there for 1 week, then in March to April, I will be gone for one month shooting for them. We’ll be in Atlanta,” he said. “This is my first acting job. I’m nervous. I’m excited. I’m a small little Hawaiian boy, and English isn’t really my strength, but I’m excited and can’t wait for the opportunity.”
Holloway has been petitioning for a fight with UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo, who himself hasn’t competed since UFC 200. Holloway will only be filming for around a month.
“I’ll be shooting for 1 month, and we’ll figure out (when the UFC return is),” he said. “First thing’s first, we have to find that guy first. Go back to #WheresJoseWaldo, and let your boy know if you find him. He took a long time to pop up, so I took this movie deal.”
There is no release date announced for the movie at this time, current UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping recently appeared the the XXX sequel.
