Holloway made his MMA debut in 2010 and joined the UFC in 2012. In 2019, he fought with Dustin Poirier for the interim UFC lightweight title at UFC 236 and lost, ending a series of 13 winning matches. “Blessed” was the UFC spring weight champion from 2017 to 2019 until he lost his belt to Volkanovsky. They fought in retaliation at UFC 251, with Volkanovski winning through what some considered a controversial partition decision.

After Volkanovski’s matches, Holloway faced Calvin Kattar and Yair Rodriguez last year when he won both matches. Volkanovski defended his title by defeating Brian Ortega at UFC 266 in September.

It is not known whether Volkanovski will remain on the card. According to Ariel Helwani Chan Sung Jung is a leading player who will face Volkanovsky in a potential fight. “The Korean Zombie” will win against Dan Ige in June.

Former UFC fly and bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo, who retired in May 2020, offered his services. Cejudo has approached Volkanovski in the past and would be interested in adding another title to his collection.

“Triple C to the rescue. @ Danawhite you have my number. # C4 #bendtheknee,” Cejudo wrote on Twitter.

The next match to be watched is Calvin Kattar vs. Giga Chikadze January 15. Kattar has 2-1 in their last three games and Chikaze is in a series of nine victories. The winner of this duel could potentially face Volkanovsky for the title.

Another duel for the title for UFC 272 is the bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling against the interim champion Peter Yan to determine the undisputed champion.
