UFC’s second trip to Canada in 2015 will be headlined by top ranked featherweights.

Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira, both fighters riding long winning streaks in the 145-pound division, are set to collide in a five-round bout on Aug. 23 at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, Canada, The Star Phoenix reported on Monday.

Holloway (13-3) has looked impressive as of late, scoring five finishes in his current six-fight winning streak, including submissions over Cub Swanson and Andre Fili.

Oliveira (20-4, 1 no-contest) won four post-fight bonuses in his last four fights, defeating the likes of Nik Lentz and Jeremy Stephens.

"I really honestly believe that whoever wins this fight will be in a (No. 1) contender's fight next," UFC director of Canadian operations Tom Wright told The Star Phoenix.

The UFC Fight Night card will air live on Fox Sports 1, and tickets go on sale on June 26.
