UFC could be ushering in a new era
It’s been two weeks since the last UFC event, but the promotion gets back to the Octagon on Saturday in Atlanta from the State Farm Arena. In the main event, UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway moves up to 155 pounds to rematch Dustin Poirier for the interim Lightweight title.
Poirier submitted Holloway back in 2012, but much has changed since then. The Hawaiian has gone on to become arguably the greatest featherweight in history, and now he’s looking to become great in another division. Poirier is the longsuffering contender who has been at or near the top of two divisions for nearly a decade.
It seemed as if interim championships were on their way out as several were vacated or abandoned, but injuries and suspensions to Robert Whittaker and Khabib Nurmagomedov have forced the company’s hand.
Many expected former interim champion Tony Ferguson to be back in the title fold while Khabib was on the shelf and suspended, but personal issues have prevented that. Instead, an interim championship will be established, with Featherweight Champion Max Holloway moving up to take on Dustin Poirier for the right to face Nurmagomedov.
Much of the same is unfolding at Middleweight. Robert Whittaker had a recent surgery that has him sidelined, but both Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya lay claim to the top contender spot. They’ll do battle at UFC 236 for that interim title.
UFC 236 will be the promotion’s first ESPN+ exclusive pay-per-view for U.S. audiences so brush up on everything you need to know ahead of Saturday’s card.
UFC 236 marks the first-time a pay-per-view will air exclusively on ESPN+ for residents of the United States.
The co-main event offers an equal amount of fireworks. The Ultimate Fighter Kelvin Gastelum tries to kill the limitless momentum of Israel Adesanya in a UFC interim middleweight championship fight. Other notable fighters on the card include Eryk Anders, Alan Jouban and Ovince Saint Preux.
The main event boasts a UFC interim lightweight title fight between reigning UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and top-ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier. The bout also serves as a rematch seven years in the making, dating all the way back to Holloway’s UFC debut.
