In an interview with MMA Junkie, UFC President Dana White said that UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway is too big to continue fighting in the division for much longer. Here are highlights:

On if he’s concerned about Max Holloway at 145: “It’s weird; I’m not nervous, but I should be. You know, I didn’t want him to fight again at ’45. He wanted this fight so bad. He got cleared by every test and doctor and everything we’ve done. Came in light this week, so we’ll see what happens. Yeah, it would be really bad if he didn’t make weight.”

On Holloway’s need to move up to 155: “I think he needs to go to ’55. He’s too big for this weight. You can’t keep doing this to yourself and cutting to ’45. But you know what he wanted? He wants this Ortega fight. He wants to fight Ortega so bad. This is the fight he wanted. He got it. He medically got cleared, and he got what he wanted.”
