“The only correct answer is Mark Coleman,” Holloway said in an interview with MMA Junkie. “Especially with what he went through recently with his dog and his dog waking him to go save his stuff and he goes in there and runs for his dog? The guy’s a G. That’s a real life BMF. That would be sick if he did it. It would be an honor to get him to do it.”

Of course, Coleman just got out of the hospital after saving his parents from a house fire. It was a heroic effort from Coleman and having him award the BMF title would be special, and Holloway is hoping to make it happen.

Holloway says he gets excited about these types of fights and is looking forward to sharing the Octagon with a future Hall of Famer in Gaethje.

“The belt is the belt – the belt is cool – it’s whatever,” Holloway said. “The things that can come with the belt can be life-changing, so we’ll see what happens. But I’m more excited that I get to share the Octagon with Gaethje. It’s amazing. It’s amazing to share the Octagon with a future Hall of Famer in him and, title or no title, being able to fight him is one of the best things I’m looking forward to.”
