Finally some good news coming out of the turbulent Featherweight division, that Conor McGregor has seemingly taken hostage. Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis will square off at UFC 206, December 10th in Toronto, and the winner of this fight should expect a fight for the title, whether that be against Jose Aldo or Conor McGregor.
Holloway is one of the greatest young talents in the UFC, and is currently riding a 8-fight win streak, not losing since August 2013, to none other than Conor McGregor via unanimous decision.
Pettis on the other hand, a former Lightweight champ, is a 145 newcomer, dropping down from Lightweight after two tough losses, but enjoyed early success at featherweight, defeating Charles Oliveira by a third round guillotine.
This fight is going to be verryyyyyy exciting folks, and will be a great co-main to Rumble vs. DC (unless the UFC adds an even better co-main). Both these fighters come into fights ready to bang and looking for finishes, usually by knockout.
I am personally very excited to see this, and am happy that the UFC was able to make this fight because they need to get the featherweight division rolling again, and hopefully lure Conor back down or Aldo from the shadows.
