Max Holloway has reacted for the first time to his controversial split decision loss to featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.

Holloway seemed to have done enough to regain his 145lb belt at UFC 251. ‘Blessed’ looked much improved from his first fight against Volkanovski at UFC 245. He dropped his opponent in the opening two rounds and was able to land good shots throughout the fight. Unfortunately for him that wasn’t enough to convince two of the judges and he fell to a second straight loss to the Australian.

Holloway took to Twitter to address the “robbery” when arriving back in Vegas from his trip to Abu Dhabi, he wrote.

“Just landed in Vegas for another quarantine and was told some guys in the media are receiving threats for saying my fight was not a robbery. This is not ok. I appreciate everyone who wants to ride for me but that ain’t it.

“Life isn’t fair. It’s even more unfair for many many other people in the world than it will ever be for me. People are unemployed right now with no end in sight and it’s not their fault.”

“It is what it was. Nothing changed for me as a fighter. We proved our point. I still have my five belts at home. I’m 28 and healthy. Blessed era continues. Bless yourself.”

Volkanovski spoke post-fight to say Holloway would not be getting another immediate rematch and will have to work his way back into contention.

“You never know,” Volkanovski said about fighting Holloway again. “Obviously, he’s got to go through the rankings system now and I don’t think the first fight was close. This was probably closer than the first fight but again, I got he job done. Doesn’t matter. I feel like I showed I’m the best fighter in the world even today. I believe I finished that chapter. I don’t know where he goes from here, I don’t know if he wants to move up or whatever. But I did what I needed to do.”

Do you think Max Holloway deserves another immediate rematch against Alexander Volkanovski?

Korean Zombie Says It’s ‘Shameful’ That Alexander Volkanovski Is Champion, Promises To Finish Him

Add the Korean Zombie to the list of people who disagreed with Alexander Volkanovski being the winner against Max Holloway.

Volkanovski retained his featherweight title after a closely-fought rematch with Holloway in the UFC 251 co-main event last night. “The Great” faced early adversity as he was dropped twice by Holloway in the opening two rounds.

While the Aussie did turn things around in the final three stanzas, many felt Holloway did enough to regain the title. In the end, Volkanovski surprisingly earned the split decision verdict to keep his strap.

Zombie: No Judges Needed For My Fight

And the Korean Zombie was not impressed as he took to social media on Sunday.

“I am responding to yesterday’s title match against Volkanovski and Holloway,” Zombie wrote on Instagram. “To be honest, it is shameful that Volkanovski is a champion of my weight class.

“Give him to me then you don’t need to worry about the judges decision. As you know, I won’t let the judges decide the result of my fight. I will finish him at the title match and that is what UFC fans want to watch.”

It would appear that if anyone is next for Volkanovski, it is Zombie who has won three of his last four outings all by way of knockout. He most recently knocked out Frankie Edgar in the UFC Busan headliner in December.

The former title challenger has called out Volkanovski repeatedly in the past and going by this latest social media post, it would certainly be heated affair.

Who do you have winning in this potential next title fight?
