One of the best fighters in the world and a former world champion finally lock horns on Saturday when Max Holloway puts his featherweight championship on the line against Frankie Edgar in the main event of UFC 240 at the Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The co-main event has Cris Cyborg taking on Felicia Spencer in women's featherweight action.
Originally, Holloway and Edgar were supposed to meet at UFC 222 back in March 2018, but the champion had to bow out of the fight due to a leg injury. Edgar stayed on the card and suffered a first-round knockout to Brian Ortega.
Holloway (20-4) defends his belt for the first time in 2019 when he had a bloody war with Ortega at UFC 231 and won by fourth-round TKO to run his winning streak at featherweight to 13. The 27-year-old's overall winning streak of 13 ended in April, when he lost to Dustin Poirier by unanimous decision for the interim lightweight title at UFC 236.
Edgar (22-6-1) returns to the Octagon for the first time in 15 months, having defeated Cub Swanson by unanimous decision last April. The former lightweight champion was scheduled to face Yair Rodriguez in November, but "The Answer" had to pull out due to a torn bicep.
