Dennis Bermudez vs. Max Holloway slated for UFC 160 in May

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

A pair of potential featherweight contenders will meet at UFC 160 on Memorial Day Weekend.

Dennis Bermudez and Max Holloway have agreed to clash on May 25 in Las Vegas, according to the UFC. No word just yet whether the fight will air on the pay-per-view or FX-portion of the card.

Bermudez (10-3) is coming off a potential Fight of the Year candidate win at UFC 157 over Matt Grice in February. That win extended his current winning streak to three in a row.

Holloway (7-1) has also won three in a row. The 21-year-old most recently defeated Leonard Garcia via split decision at UFC 155 in December.

UFC 160, headlined by Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva 2 for the heavyweight title, will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
