Sean O’Malley believes Max Holloway should stay at lightweight after “f*cking legendary” knockout win against Justin Gaethje. 

At UFC 300, Holloway added an unforgettable highlight-reel knockout to his Hall of Fame resume when he folded Gaethje with one second left. Two days have passed since the action-packed event, and the entire sports world is still talking about the BMF title-winning performance by ‘Blessed.’

UFC bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley was one of many people who couldn’t believe what Holloway did at UFC 300. During a reaction video posted on YouTube, O’Malley had this to say about the viral moment: 

“That was the craziest moment in UFC history. That is literally wanted to do to Chito in that last ten seconds and it obviously didn’t work out that way, but that was f*cking legendary.”

Sean O’Malley calls for Max Holloway vs Islam Makhachev

Max Holloway’s latest Octagon appearance extended his win streak to three fights, with the first two taking place at featherweight. Following the official decision, Holloway joined Joe Rogan in the Octagon for an interview and called out the 145-pound champion Ilia Topuria, who knocked out Alexander Volkanovski on February 17. 

Meanwhile, several fighters and analysts, including Sean O’Malley, have suggested Holloway stay at lightweight after taking out Justin Gaethje. During the previously mentioned YouTube video, O’Malley had this to say about wanting to see ‘Blessed’ challenge Islam Makhachev: 

“I think Max should stay at [lightweight]. Going down to [featherweight], I’m like, dude, you just pieced up and knocked out Justin Gaethje at 55. What’s the point of going to 45? Max vs who’s next? Justin is number two and [Holloway] just knocked him out. Max [vs] Islam [Makhachev], f*ck it. I mean you could.”

Max Holloway would have to wait before potentially facing Islam Makhachev for the lightweight title. Following UFC 300, Dana White announced three significant fights, including Makhachev vs Poirier, which is scheduled to headline UFC 302 in Newark, New Jersey, on June 1. 

White also revealed the co-main event for UFC 302 will be a five-round non-title fight between former middleweight champion Sean Strickland and Paulo Costa.
