Max Holloway wants a fight with UFC interim featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

The 24-year-old Holloway, who's currently on a nine-fight winning streak, has his eyes set on interim gold. However, if the Hawaiian can't get Jose Aldo, he's willing to settle for former UFC lightweight champion and now-turned-featherweight, Anthony Pettis.

On Wednesday, Pettis went to Twitter to call out Holloway, asking to fight him at UFC 205 in New York City on Nov. 12, to which Holloway replied 'you're next,' if he can't get a fight with Aldo.

Currently, the three featherweights have yet to be booked to fight by the UFC.

Holloway hasn't lost a fight since losing to current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor back in August 2013. The Hawaiian prospect is ranked number 3 in the division, and holds notable victories over Ricardo Lamas, Jeremy Stephens, Cub Swanson, Cole Miller and Charles Oliveira.

Pettis recently returned to the winning column by submitting jiu-jitsu black belt, Charles Oliveira at UFC on FOX 21, successfully making his featherweight debut. Prior to that, the former champ was on a three-fight losing streak at lightweight.

Meanwhile, Aldo is coming off a decision win over Frankie Edgar at UFC 200 that saw him seize the UFC interim title. Prior to that, Aldo suffered a knockout loss to McGregor, putting a stop to his 4 year reign over the UFC's 145-pound division.
