Topuria to Holloway: "Put your belt on and get your pad ready".

UFC featherweight champion Elijah Topuria addressed former titleholder Max Holloway.

Previously, the Georgian-born Spaniard repeatedly noted that he would only give the American a fight if he put the BMF title on the line.

"I never refused a rematch with Alex, as the UFC never offered me this fight. As I've said many times before, I'll be the first one to send Holloway to a knockout. Let's keep it simple: do you want the fight? If yes, then we have nothing more to discuss. Put your belt and prepare your cushion," Topuria wrote in X.

Recall that Topuria became champion in February at UFC 298, knocking out Alexander Volkanovski.
