UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway earned a third round TKO victory over former featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 218.
Shortly after the event in Detroit, the UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor took a shot at Holloway through Twitter:

Holloway would get wind of the shot taken by McGregor and would issue a response of his own through Twitter:
Miss the sunglasses? I bet you also miss 2015 brother. Retired fighters love the past. pic.twitter.com/UWGnJG2KEe— Max Holloway (@BlessedMMA) December 3, 2017
However, just in case fans were hoping for a rematch between the two fighters, the UFC President in Dana White shot those dreams down while providing a slim glimmer of hope.
“Again, like I said last week to everybody who was in my office, who knows if Conor’s even going to fight again,” White said after UFC 218. “I’m rolling like he’s not. But yeah, if Conor comes back and defends his title, anything is possible.”
McGregor won the first fight against Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26, but Holloway hasn’t lost a bout since the first encounter with the Irish superstar.
