UFC 240 Holloway vs Edgar Preview:
This Saturday night UFC 240 comes to you from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Another solid card put together by the UFC that has two big Featherweight bouts, one in the mens division and one in the women's division. The main event is for the mens Featherweight Championship as Frankie Edgar will challenge Max Holloway. Edgar will look to end the reign of Holloway who is coming off a loss to Dustin Poirier back in April when he tried to become a two division champ. It has all the makings of what should be a great main event. In the Co-main event Cris Cyborg will take on Felicia Spencer in what could be a fight to determine who could challenge Amanda Nunes next for the women's Featherweight Championship.
