Las Vegas is getting another championship fight.
In his last outing at UFC 240, Holloway (21-4) rebounded from a failed bid to win an interim title by earning a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Frankie Edgar to record his third consecutive championship defense. “Blessed” has won his last 14 featherweight bouts (including one catchweight affair in which his opponent missed weight).
Volkanovski (20-1) is a perfect 7-0 in the UFC so far, with wins over former champion Jose Aldo and multiple-time title challenger Chad Mendes. The Australian fighter is on a 17-fight win streak dating back to December 2013.
