The main event features current featherweight champion Max Holloway taking on Dustin Poirier for the UFC interim lightweight tournament. The winner of the fight will in all likelihood move on to face Khabib Nurmagomedov, current winner.
The final time Max Holloway failed to receive his hands increased was back in April 2013 in UFC Fight Night 26 where he dropped a unanimous decision to Conor McGregor. Since then Holloway has won two consecutive fights. His most recent victory was a stoppage from Brian Ortega in UFC 231. Prior to the Ortega fight, Holloway completed all-time featherweight great Jose Aldo in back-to-back bouts. At UFC 212 and at UFC 218. Both ends came in the third round. At twenty-seven decades of age, Holloway makes the walk to the time. The Hawaiian born fighter has twelve wins via stoppage to go by decision along with eight.
Dustin Poirier is 4-0 over his last five fights with a no-contest because of an accidental knee into the head of a grounded fighter against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 211. But, Poirier won the rematch against Alvarez in his most recent fight at UFC on FOX 30. His three victories include Justin Gaethje Alvarez and Anthony Pettis. All three ended inside the distance. Like Holloway, Poirier has also suffered a loss at the hands of Conor McGregor. The loss of poirier was a first-round knockout back in September of 2014 in UFC 178. Since then”The Diamond” is 8-1-1. The thirty-year-old is likely to produce the walk to the thirtieth time on Saturday night. Nineteen of his career wins ended inside the space.
The co-main takes place at the middleweight division where Kelvin Gastelum squares off from Israel Adesanya for the UFC interim championship championship. The winner will face Robert Whittaker after the UFC middleweight champion is ready to come back from injury. Gastelum was set to face Whittaker for the name at UFC 234 but the winner was forced to pull out mere hours before the fight because of an abdominal hernia that required emergency surgery.
Since getting subbed by Chris Weidman at UFC on FOX 25 Gastelum has won his last 2 fights. He beat Michael Bisping via knockout at UFC Fight Night 122 and then won a split decision against Ronaldo Souza in UFC 224. The twenty-seven-year-old boasts ten endings in career victories that are fifteen.
