TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – With his Featherweight Championship Title on the line, Max Holloway will fight Frankie Edgar Saturday at UFC 240. Holloway tried to move up to the Lightweight division for UFC 236 where he fought Dustin Poirier in a Lightweight Championship bout. He suffered his first loss against Poirier, breaking a winning streak of 13 fights since 2013.
After his loss in the Lightweight division, Holloway moved back to the Featherweight class where he currently holds the championship title. This will be his first fight since losing in UFC 236.

Frankie Edgar is 37 years old while Max Holloway is 27 years old. One fighter is in his prime while the other is at the tail end of it. Edgar lost against Jose Aldo in his last two attempts to win the Featherweight title. This may be his last chance to become a champion.
