Max Holloway Eyes “Committed” Stints At Lightweight And Welterweight

Max Holloway is quite possibly the best UFC featherweight champion of all-time...but he doesn't plan to stick around the 145-pound division for his entire career.

The Hawaiian-native already has one UFC bout under his belt in the lightweight division, being on the wrong side of a unanimous decision against Dustin Poirier at UFC 236 in what was contested for the interim UFC lightweight championship.

"For sure, for sure,” Holloway told ESPN's Ariel Helwani when asked about testing the waters at other weight classes. “At some point, I think I end my career at a fully committed 155lbs or maybe even a fully committed 170lbs, who knows. That’s what I see. We’ll see what happens. It’s just commitment. My coaches want commitment and I want commitment and the UFC wants it as well."

We’ll see what happens," admitted Holloway. "I love food. Time will tell all. I’m just loving it (my career) right now.”

Holloway last competed at UFC Fight Island 7, where he absolutely dominated top featherweight contender Calvin Kattar en-route to a lopsided unanimous decision victory.
