Should Fight: The winner of Dan Ige/Calvin Cattar,

It's a sad time for the former featherweight king as Holloway is now 1-3 in his last four fights, and lost his chance to regain his title by the slimmest of margins. Holloway was champion for so long, and featherweight isn't the most stacked division, so it's difficult to know where he goes from here.

Jeremy Stephens is on a four fight losing streak despite being in the top ten, Josh Emmett is plagued with injuries and everyone else is paired up for fights against each other.

Next weekend we are given an important featherweight bout between Dan Ige and Calvin Cattar that is sure to provide fireworks. Neither man will find himself set up for a title shot after a victory, but it does set them up perfectly for a fight against 'Blessed'.

There aren't many match-ups for Holloway to take at present, but this should be a fun scrap to establish where Max is and if the two fighters are ready to push for a title shot should they beat him.
