UFC 240 featherweight champion Max Holloway will aim to defend his featherweight belt for the third time, when he faces former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar on July 27 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
It’s a matchup that has been made on two previous occasions UFC 240, once in December 2017 (Edgar pulled out with an injury) and later in March 2018 (Holloway pulled out with an injury). Edgar has won three of his past four matchups, most recently a unanimous decision victory against Cub Swanson in April 2018.
But his one win in the past 18 months pales in comparison to Alexander Volkanovski’s three — against Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes and Darren Elkins. At 20-1, he’s on a 17-fight win streak and had a legitimate chance at fighting next for the belt. Should he have been given the opportunity?
We asked this question to ESPN‘s MMA contributors — Ariel Helwani, Brett Okamoto, Marc Raimondi, Jeff Wagenheim and Phil Murphy — for their takes.
The UFC is running not one, but two pay-per-view shows in July. UFC 239 happens on July 6th in Las Vegas as part of International Fight Week, while July 27th sees UFC 240 go down at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In the main event, reigning men’s featherweight champion Max Holloway makes his first title defense of 2019, as he takes on former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar. The co-main will see former women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg take on unbeaten Canadian Felicia Spencer in a three-round showdown.
This card is more than halfway filled, so not a lot of available slots left. I’d like to think that there will be a couple of major fights added — perhaps the rumored Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Brian Ortega bout could fit the bill.
Here is what is currently on tap for UFC 240:
