The return of Conor McGregor is the biggest story of UFC in 2019. Fans all around the world are wondering as to when the Irishman will be back in action once again and so far all they are getting is teases! While it looks like McGregor vs Khabib II might not be his first fight back, we might just get to see McGregor vs Holloway II.
The dynamic between the two would be quite interesting as both of them have progressed quite a bit since the last time they faced each other. Let us take a closer look:
Conor McGregor vs Max Holloway: Tale of the Tape
McGregor vs Holloway II is a match waiting to happen if McGregor vs Khabib II fails to happen after the result of UFC 242. The last time that these two men fought each other was in 2013 when they were pretty different sorts of fighters. Over the past six years, both the men have come into their own and are very different from what they were in 2013!
McGregor was the red hot fighter back then and he had an absolutely dominating performance against Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26. Holloway has now become one of the hottest names in the division and even a championship contender during his fight with Poirier!
For me it’s Holloway vs McGregor next fight
