The Georgian UFC Featherweight fighter Giga Chikadze entered the top 10 rankings in the division with his latest win against the veteran of the sport Cub Swanson at UFC Vegas 25.

Chikadze is still undefeated in UFC and after winning his first four fights by unanimous decision, he won his last two by TKO and it looks like Giga Chikadze found his groove.

In his last fight, he knocked out Swanson in the very first round of the fight and went big by calling out the former Featherweight champion Max Holloway for a fight.

After what Holloway did to Calvin Kattar in his last fight a lot of featherweights are saving themselves to enter the Octagon against him but Chikadze wants completely opposite.

In his latest interview with TMZ Sports, Giga Chikadze said it was Calvin Kattar’s fight that excited him to potentially face Max Holloway. Chikadze says, “Every time he was doing some crazy boxing combo I was like ‘Man, I really want to fight him,’”

“I got so many messages like ‘Hey if you ever going to fight him, you gonna lose with this guy!’ I was like what? It really motivated me to do it even more and I definitely feel like I’m the best striker in the organization and I really want to fight him and challenge him and show the world what I’m capable of.” {H/T MMA Mania}

After his win against Calvin Kattar, Holloway is next in line for the title shot. But the champion Alexander Volkanovski is booked to face Brian Ortega next at the end of this season of TUF.

If Volkanovski wins this fight, it will be interesting to see whether he’ll give a title shot to Max Holloway or not as he already got two wins against him. If this still happens Max has to wait until 2022 for a fight.

That’s why Giga Chikadze believes he can be a tune-up fight for Holloway. Chikadze added, “I guarantee you I’m the best striker in the organization and a better striker than Max Holloway. I just need a chance to prove it. And it doesn’t matter if it’s a three-round fight, a five-round fight. I only give [Max] two … Yeah I believe I can do it.”

In the end, he concluded, “My message is gonna be: Max Holloway, you’ve been a champion, you’ve fought the best of the best from different divisions,”

“I’m the new name in the organization and this is the fight you’re looking for. You’ve had the belt already. I know you are a contender. But this is a fight that fans would enjoy the most. If you engage, I’m here.” {H/T MMA Mania}
