MAX HOLLOWAY left Conor McGregor chuckling after passing by the Irishman's interview on a skateboard.
The MMA legend was discussing his imminent fight with Dustin Poirier when an old rival skated past.
And McGregor giggled after his interviewer confirmed that Holloway had been skating around Fight Island during the week.
During a UFC Arabia chat, he realised: "That looked like Max Holloway going by on a skateboard there.
"Haha! Brilliant. I was like 'what?'."
McGregor, 32, fought Holloway, 29, on a Fight Night undercard in 2013 and took a points decision win after three rounds.
It was only the Notorious' second UFC contest and he went on to beat Poirier in their first meeting just over a year later.
Ahead of a rematch with the American, he insisted that Holloway is 'in the pipeline' following the Hawaiian brawler's victory over Calvin Kattar.
He added: "I tell you what, Max had a great fight [against Kattar] and he's in the pipeline for sure.
"Me and Max will do it again."
Holloway claimed a points win on Saturday after a run of two defeats in the octagon.
The victory left McGregor praising the American and a rematch is on the cards, if he can maintain this form.
He told The Mac Life: "I thought it was a solid performance.
"He fought an up-and-comer, he did well.

"He’s obviously hanging around, and fair play to him.
"He’s definitely in the pipeline for a bout against me.
"I would happily rematch Max, and after a performance like that, he’s put himself right up there."
