Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
Featherweight champion Holloway was originally supposed to fight Edgar at UFC 218 earlier this month until the title challenger pulled out injured and Jose Aldo stepped in on short notice instead.
Holloway then put on another striking masterclass to defeat Aldo for the second time in the space of a year, taking his unbeaten run to 12 fights, while also securing his place as one of the top five pound-for-pound fighters in the sport today.
Moving into 2018 the fight with Edgar remains the match-up to make as the former lightweight champion has only ever lost to Aldo during his time in the featherweight ranks and has defeated a laundry list of top contenders like Chad Mendes, Urijah Faber, Cub Swanson, Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens.
Given that ‘Blessed’ has also emerged victorious against a whos-who of the division, a savvy veteran like Edgar, whose ground game is as good as his stand-up, seems like he is well-placed to try to find ‘The Answer’ to defeating the Hawaiian star.
