UFC President Dana White shot down the idea of a rematch between former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor and former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.
White spoke with the media during the post-fight press conference following Holloway's thrilling unanimous decision win over Yair Rodriguez in the main event at UFC Vegas 42 on Saturday night and spoke about what he thinks could be next for the Hawaiian star, suggesting that a trilogy bout with current UFC featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, makes more sense than a rematch with McGregor who still is recovering from the broken leg he suffered back at UFC 264.
“I don’t know what’s next for Max,” White said (h/t MMA Fighting). “This is a guy Volkanovski is going to have to just get him out of the way and do it again. It does make sense to see him and Volkanovski again, but we’ll get that figured out. Conor’s not even [ready to fight]. Conor’s still hurt. To even talk about Conor is silly.”
