Max Holloway continues to shine as one of the best featherweights on the planet.

The former UFC featherweight champion put on another high-volume striking clinic at UFC Fight Night 197 against Yair Rodriguez, picking up his second unanimous decision win of the year.

Firmly the No. 1 contender in the featherweight division, is it time for a third fight with current champion Alexander Volkanovski, who beat him to win the belt, then beat him a second time to defend it? Both fights were extremely close and very intriguing, so a third fight makes sense.

However, Holloway expressed interest in running it back with former champ-champ Conor McGregor, and also teased a potential move up to lightweight to face current champion Charles Oliveira.

Should Holloway focus on regaining featherweight gold or chase a big money fight?
