Main Card & UFC 240 Betting Odds

Max Holloway is coming off a decision loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 236. However, since the bout was at Lightweight, Holloway was able to retain his featherweight belt. Nevertheless, losing inside the cage is never a good thing and it’s up to Holloway to go in and reclaim some of his lost stock. The Hawaiian enters this event with a 20-4 professional record in MMA. Before his loss to Poirier, Holloway had put together a 13-fight winning streak that included two title defenses.

Now Holloway is aiming to get back on the winning side of the fight and to add yet another title defense to his legacy. Known for his unrelenting pressure and mad dog attitude, there’s no question that Holloway will give us one heck of a show this weekend. Holloway has had to fight his fair share of battles outside the cage and it’s good to finally see him back in there looking healthy.

Prelims & UFC 240 Betting Odds

The man challenging Holloway for the Featherweight title this weekend is none other than online UFC betting veteran Frankie Edgar. With a 23-6 professional record in MMA, Edgar has been in his fair share of wars. A couple fights ago, in UFC 222, we saw Edgar get demolished by a brutal KO from Brian Ortega. Since then, Edgar added some stock to his name with a decision win over fellow UFC veteran Cub Swanson. Now Edgar is ready to finally become a champion by usurping Holloway.

Edgar may not have the height that Holloway sports, but he’s got the tenacity to make up for it. Although he’s 3-2 in his last 5 fights, there isn’t anyone questioning Edgar’s right to be competing for the title. All in all this marks the second time in his career that he’s had the chance to do so. The last time was at UFC 200 back in mid-2016. There he faced Jose Aldo in a unanimous decision loss.
