Featherweight champion Max Holloway is wasting no time to put his title on the line again. He will return to the Octagon to face Frankie Edgar on March 3 in the main event at UFC 222 in Las Vegas, after having defended his belt against Jose Aldo in December.
UFC officials announced the match-up earlier this month and unveiled the official fight poster on Tuesday.
Holloway is currently riding one of the most unprecedented streaks in UFC history with 12 straight wins, including back-to-back TKO victories against Aldo, the former champion. Now Holloway will look for the second defense of his undisputed title when he faces one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the sport.
Edgar was actually scheduled to face Holloway at UFC 218 last December, but the former lightweight champion suffered a broken orbital bone in training that forced out of the bout.
Now, the New Jersey native is healthy and ready to pursue the featherweight championship one more time, as he faces Holloway in the headline fight at UFC 222, which takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
