Max Holloway is considering a move to the lightweight division and has expressed his interest in fighting The Korean Zombie before making the transition. Following his recent victory over Arnold Allen, Holloway proposed a fight against Chan Sung Jung, and although no official progress has been made, he believes it’s the most likely next matchup.

Regarding the potential fight with Korean Zombie, Holloway stated, “I called him out, and he responded quickly, so now it’s up to the UFC to make it happen. I’ve fought most of the top guys in the division, but I haven’t faced him yet. He’s still ranked in the top 10, and it makes sense. I’ve heard he wants to retire after one more fight, so why not go out with a bang? I’m not sure why it hasn’t been booked yet, but I’m eager to figure it out.”

Not only is a fight with Korean Zombie highly anticipated by fans, but it also solves the UFC’s dilemma of finding suitable opponents for Holloway. Despite his losses to Volkanovski, Holloway continues to defeat other contenders in the featherweight division. However, after facing Korean Zombie, Holloway has set his sights on the lightweight division and the possibility of challenging the winner of the upcoming ‘BMF’ title fight between Poirier and Gaethje.

“While holding a belt, it’s always exciting to compete in a different weight class. We’ll see what happens after my next fight and how things unfold in July. The ‘BMF’ belt caught everyone’s attention, and many people have been urging me to face Gaethje. Additionally, there are other intriguing matchups for me at lightweight, such as Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev. Who knows? I won’t rule anything out. The idea of adding that BMF belt to my collection definitely appeals to me.”

Poirier and Gaethje are scheduled to fight in July, and Holloway aims to secure two more fights before the year ends, potentially in the fall or winter. If the UFC can arrange a fight with Korean Zombie in the coming months, that would be ideal. However, if that doesn’t materialize, Holloway acknowledges another possibility: a rematch with former opponent Conor McGregor. McGregor is planning a return to competition, and while he’s expected to face Michael Chandler, Holloway believes that their paths will cross again at some point, whether it’s in the UFC or boxing.

“I think it will happen. I’m not sure about McGregor’s current situation, but I believe our paths will cross again. Whether it’s in the UFC or even in the boxing ring, I have a feeling it will happen.”
