Conor McGregor has spoken about a possible rematch with Max Holloway.

The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champ beat the fellow 145-king by decision in August 2013. He’s slated to meet Dustin Poirier this Saturday at the UFC 257 pay-per-view event.

Conor McGregor Open To Rematch With Max Holloway

“I’m certainly more stable and connected to the floor and then I can flash it up,” McGregor told The Mac Life (H/T to Bloody elbow) ahead of his rematch with Poirier. “I can go through all styles, I can paint many pictures inside that Octagon. It’s just another wrinkle in my beautiful suit so I look forward to getting in and showcasing all my skills. Boxing is certainly prevalent but I’m flying through the air also. I’m ready for it all.

“[Max] is not the best boxer and I’ll prove that on Sunday,” McGregor concluded. “Watch, I’ll end up kicking bleedin’ Dustin in the head like the last one. I had the boxing crew with me and I end up kicking Donald in the head and breaking his face with my shoulders. I have so many shots and it will just come out magically on the night, so we’ll see what happens.”

“I thought it was a solid performance,” McGregor said of Holloway’s 25-minute thrashing of Kattar. “He fought an up and comer and he done well. I was actually doing an interview there and he skateboarded by the window, so he’s obviously hanging around. Yeah, fair play to him. More power to him. He’s definitely in the pipeline for a bout against me, for sure. I would happily rematch Max and after a performance like that, he’s put himself right up there.

“He’s only fought at 155 once,” McGregor added. “He fought against Dustin and he was out-powered but he could certainly do it, and against other lightweights you never know but me and him, the rematch would be 155 for sure.”
