    Per several reports Aldo's camp pushed for a showdown at UFC 208, but Holloway doesn't see that as a realistic timeframe. The interim featherweight champion has reasons both personal and professional, but what it truly boils down to is his genuine disbelief Aldo would actually make the walk when the UFC debuts in Brooklyn two months from now.

    "The thing is I would love to fight on February 11 but there's no way I can trust this guy to show up," Holloway said. "If I could trust this guy and know without a doubt he would show up on that date it wouldn't be a problem, but this guy has a knack for not showing up to fight. Injuries happen, and I know how that goes, but injuries happen to this guy four or five times more than anyone else.

    "I'm going to fight Jose Waldo next and we'll go from there. My son's birthday is in January and I'm taking time off for that. All the dads out there definitely understand I'm not trying to miss my son's birthday because I ain't about that life. My family means everything to me and I already gave up Thanksgiving and my birthday.

    "Look at the guy who has the belt in Conor McGregor. He's taking time off because he's about to have a kid and I respect that, man. I have a family and know how it is so respect to him for taking the time."


    Regardless of whatever obstacles may be standing in the way of the fight with Aldo becoming official at the current time, Holloway is beyond confident the UFC will make it happen sometime in the coming year. Holloway sees all the talk of him ducking out as complete nonsense because his track record is rock-solid when it comes to facing each and every challenge presented to him.


    "Someone pointed something crazy out to me, man," Holloway explained. "I am on a 10 fight-winning streak and I have more wins than this guy has fights in the UFC. And this guy was our former champion? Come on, man. People talking out saying my interim title is fake, but the last time I checked I'm the one who actually fought for my title. The sh*t didn't get handed to me twice like this other guy.

    "Some of these fighters, when the UFC calls they don't answer. When Dana [White], Joe [Silva] or Sean [Shelby] call they don't pick up because they don't want to fight or they get the one dial tone and all they hear is 'Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now?'

    "When Dana calls me I answer every damn time," he added. "You know that and the fans all know that is true. Verizon needs to sponsor this new champ right now because I'm not one of those 'Can you hear me now?' fighters. Hey Verizon….give your boy a call and get in on the ground floor because the prices are going to blow up soon."



    Holloway's sole focus in currently fixed on locking down a fight with Aldo, and he sees the turbulence in the scenario as just another example of how crazy the division he calls home has become as of late. Where the 145-pound collective was once a picture where contenders rose and champion's defended, the star-studded division has become nothing short of a circus with Aldo playing a large role in the insanity.

    Holloway's solution to the problem at hand is quite simple, and believes he'll get what he's after in the coming months.


    "It's been crazy the past few years in this division," Holloway said. "We have one guy who chased down the champion then went chasing another belt, then the guy who he beat has now started chasing him. Jose needs to face the music and stop crying about it. Sometimes things don't happen the way you want them to so be a man and face up to what is in front of you. Let's fight.

    "The UFC was already trying to make this fight. We were supposed to fight at UFC 205 and 206 but Jose was trying to pick up an easier fight. He said he wanted a more marketable fight, which means he wanted an easier fight, but I'm the guy to fight at 145. At the end of the day he can run his mouth and say whatever he wants, but I'm going to see him inside that cage.

    "He can count his blessing now, but we are going to meet face to face and he's going to find out what I'm about."

    It's absurd for Aldo to expect Max to fight him literally 8 weeks after fighting Pettis.

    Max set a date, he talked himself into a corner
    Danger of in cage callouts after hard fights, dudes aren't always thinking rationally. His camp probably told him it was a dumb idea immediately after

    I will thoroughly enjoy the master class Aldo will eventually provide to Max Holiday.

    Danger of repeating Dana's advice. Max didn't want that going in but Dana whispered in his ear and power paralyzes analysis. Poor Max. I agree - just back out and spend the time with your family. It's not like he doesn't fight often enough for the UFC. They can't say shit....

    Did he not specifically call out Brookyln or 208 or something? Or am I going crazy, serious - I can't remember anymore

    Wait....so Aldo calls him out for a specific date and time. Max says no to that date and then starts talking about Aldo not showing up when Max was the one initially calling out Aldo for that date in the cage?

    Max seems to be contradicting himself a little bit there.

    Max said that not Aldo, Aldo just said he accepted.

    I hope Max stop the Mcgregorness of his attitude, I like him, Aldo accepted the fight, don't make me start disliking you Max.

    Max 100% called out Aldo in the cage after his fight with Pettis for UFC 208 in Brooklyn, exact words "UFC 208 in Brooklyn".

    Max is just saying this to put pressure on aldo to fight thru with the inevitable "injury" that will pop up.

    yeah, he shouldn't have talked himself into a corner
    now he'll either be forced to take a fight he doesn't want to, or backtrack and lose a little momentum. It won't hurt in the long run, but it doesn't look great right now.
