Max Holloway's impressive win over Arnold Allen at UFC Kansas City proves that he still deserves another title shot in the featherweight division.

Despite losing three times to current champion Alex Volkanovski, Holloway has consistently fought against top-notch opponents in his career.

Against Allen, Holloway won by unanimous decision, with scores of 49-46 and 48-47, despite facing an opponent who was on a 10-bout winning streak.

Allen's performance demonstrated that he too has the potential to win a championship in the future. However, there has been speculation that Holloway will not receive another title shot while Volkanovski holds the belt.

But if Volkanovski retains his championship after his upcoming fight with interim champion Yair Rodriguez, there seems to be no better opponent for him than Holloway.

In the featherweight division, Rodriguez is currently ranked first, followed by Holloway and Brian Ortega, respectively. The fourth and fifth ranked fighters are Allen and Josh Emmett, both of whom have already lost to Volkanovski.

Holloway's performance against Allen showcased his fighting skills and ability to avoid damage. While Allen landed some hard hits, Holloway made great use of body kicks and danced out of the pocket to avoid taking too much damage.

Although Allen could have potentially won the fight, Holloway's quick thinking and sharp reflexes allowed him to secure the victory. Despite losing to Volkanovski in the past, Holloway still has the potential to defeat him in the future.

Volkanovski's previous victories were not due to Holloway's shortcomings, but rather Volkanovski's own strengths.

With both fighters still in their prime, a rematch between Holloway and Volkanovski could be an epic battle that fans would love to see.

Maintaining the integrity of UFC's belts has been crucial to the organization's success, and pitting Volkanovski against Holloway one more time would be the logical and fair decision.

As one of the best fighters in UFC history, Holloway's legacy and skills deserve another shot at the championship.
