Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski may have been Max Holloway twice in a row, but by the sounds of things he could still end up fighting him yet again in a trilogy bout for in next Octagon outing.
“Well, here’s the thing,” White told ESPN. “Calvin Kattar just fought. Yair Rodriguez has a fight coming up. (Korean) ‘Zombie’ has a fight coming up. Ortega and Zabit – all of these guys are going to fight in the next couple of months here. We’ll see how that all plays out. It’s hard to not say we can give Max a rematch for that fight again – do it a third time. I think all of the fans and the media would agree with that. I don’t know for sure.”
White, who like a number of others watching believed that Holloway won their last fight, went on to acknowledge that Volkanovski is likely to be less than thrilled about having to go up against the former champ for the third time in a row.
“I’m sure Volkanovski doesn’t love that idea,” White admitted. “He’s like, ‘Listen, I just beat this guy twice. You know?’ And if you’re Volkanovski, you’re like, ‘Guess what? The media aren’t judges. Dana White is not a judge. None of these people are judges. The people that are assigned to judge the fight say I won twice.’
“So if you’re Volkanovski, I get it. And if you’re Volkanovski, you probably want to take a look at a different guy. I don’t know. I haven’t really talked to Volkanovski about it. It’s something I definitely need to do. We’ll see how this thing plays out.”
