Holloway still wants Nurmagomedov fight
UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway said he wants to fight UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov and is still optimistic it will happen.
"I wish it happened," he stressed. "Khabib is on his way to being one of greatest to ever do it. I plan on being one of the greatest to ever do it. I’m sure we’re gonna meet,” Holloway added.
"As long as my goal and his goal is the same, we’re gonna run into each other some time, and that’s being the greatest fighter of all time," BJPenn cited him as saying.
Max Holloway is currently days out from a high-stakes featherweight title defense opposite Australian juggernaut Alexander Volkanovski.
Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, is currently scheduled to defend his lightweight belt opposite Tony Ferguson in April.
