Who will win UFC 240 Holloway vs Edgar live?
The headline event for UFC 240 will be the Featherweight title fight between defending champion Max Holloway and former Lightweight champ Frankie Edgar. This is the third time the fight has been scheduled: both Holloway and Edgar had to withdraw in the past due to injuries. They're finally coming head to head, with Holloway's UFC Featherweight Championship belt on the line.
Holloway has had an epic 13-fight win streak to his name, managing to defeat big names like Cub Swanson and Charles Oliveira. It only recently came to an end, losing to Dustin Poirier in a rematch for the Interim UFC Lightweight Championship earlier in 2019.
Meanwhile, Edgar has won seven of nine fights after dropping to Featherweight. He was defeated by Brian Ortega via knockout last year but bounced back with a win against Cub Swanson soon after.
While the two fighters are pretty evenly matched, the odds have Holloway as favourite to win, as he has been wearing the Featherweight gold for the past two years.
