MAX HOLLOWAY was rushed to hospital after suffering a horrific cut in his trilogy fight with Alexander Volkanovski.

The former dominant featherweight champion suffered a huge laceration above his left eye in the second round of their UFC 276 showdown – which he lost via unanimous decision.

A beautiful overhand right from Volkanovski in the second round of their Las Vegas clash left Holloway bleeding like a stuck pig.

Max Holloway, 30, valiantly through adversity but was unable to turn the tide against the slick and elusive champion.

And after a quick once over from the UFC’s medical team, he was transported to the hospital for further treatment.

Defeat to Volkanovski snapped a two-fight win streak for fan-favourite Holloway, who is now 0-3 against the Aussie.

The win marked Volkanovski’s fourth defence of the featherweight strap he prised from the Hawaiian’s clutches in December 2019.

And The Great now has sights set on moving up in weight and adding the vacant lightweight title to his collection.

The 33-year-old said: “Max Holloway is an absolute beast.

“I just proved to you that I want to be in this octagon as much as possible.

“I want to be busy. I want to move up and go for double champ and I’ll keep two divisions busy.

“Charles [Oliveira], whoever gets that belt, no disrespect, I’d love to move up, get that double champ status.”
