Max Holloway became the undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion at UFC 212, when he finished Jose Aldo by third round TKO.
Holloway is now seeking a new deal with the UFC and the champion is extremely confident that it'll get done.
“We’re going to figure it out,” Holloway said on MMA Junkie Radio. “Dana White figures it out. He’s the man. Whenever there’s a problem, he always solves the problem, and I think we’re going to get it done. We’re setting up the meeting. We’re going to talk, we’ll go from there. Dana White always finds a way to figure stuff out, so I’m looking forward to talking with him soon.”
The Hawaiian entered the fight at UFC 212 as the UFC Interim Featherweight Champion, but walked out of the arena as only one of three men to hold the UFC Featherweight Title.
When it comes to defending the gold, the champion has no problem defending it against all challengers.
“And we can go from there,” Holloway said. “The 145-pound division is under new management, man, and we’re open 24-7, seven days out of the week. This is the only place you can come in and you can leave with an ‘L,’ and leave with a smile on your face. At the end of the day, everybody can get it. If I didn’t fight you, get ready, and if I did fight you, get emotionally ready, because you know what’s going to happen. I’ve never run away from a fight in my life. There’s just some things we’ve got to figure out, and we can go from there.”
Besides Holloway, the other two fighters who have held the UFC Featherweight Title are Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor.
