The Main Event
Max "Blessed" Holloway (20-4) is the Featherweight champion, and sixth on the UFC pound-for-pound overall rankings. He returns to featherweight to defend his title after a loss in his last fight, which was a failed attempt to become a two division champion. In a unanimous decision, Dustin Poirier won the Interim Lightweight title by beating Holloway in the Fight of the Night of UFC 236. The Hawaian native mixes kickboxing, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu to become a dynamic and unpredictable fighter. Holloway is a strong betting favorite, but far from a sure thing against a tough opponent.
Frankie "The Answer" Edgar (22-6-1) is a former UFC Lightweight champion seeking a return to the top of the ranks. Since losing his title to Benson Henderson at UFC 144, Edgar has fought in three other title fights before this week, and has lost them all. However, he has won three of his last four bouts. Frankie has a background in boxing and wrestling, but isn't a classic finisher with knockouts or submissions. Even though 17 of his 30 professional fights have ended in decisions, he still has the skill and power needed to finish off a foe in one punch if they let their guard down. Holloway will need to maintain his defense at all times.
Watch as Frankie Edgar makes quick work of Chad Mendes with a knockout so amazing it earned the Performance of the Night award back in 2015.
Here's the schedule for this split event:
- Early Prelims: 6:15 p.m. Eastern on ESPN+
- Prelims: 8 p.m. Eastern on ESPN
- Main Card: 10 p.m. Eastern on PPV
- Post Show: 1 a.m. on ESPN+
UFC 240 also features a major women's featherweight match as Cris Cyborg (20-2) faces Felicia Spencer (7-0). Cyborg wants to bounce back from her first loss in 22 straight fights, where she lost her title belt to Amanda Nunes at UFC 232. Her otherwise impressive record is filled with big victories as well as a doping violation and accusations of further drug use. Cyborg has even had others refuse to fight her for these reasons. That isn't an issue for Spencer, who is fighting in just her second UFC match. A win here would be a huge step up for the undefeated fighter, and put her in a position for a challenge to Nunes for the championship.
The rest of the card, subject to change as always, is as follows:
Main Card Pay Per View
- Geoff Neal (11-2) vs. Niko Price (13-2)
- Olivier Aubin-Mercier (11-4) vs. Arman Tsarukyan (13-2)
- Krzysztof Jotko (20-4) vs. Marc-André Barriault (11-2)
- Alexis Davis (19-9) vs. Viviane Araujo (7-1)
