The octagon returns to Toronto, Ontario, Canada this Saturday for the UFC 206 pay-per-view event.
The event is headlined by an interim featherweight title fight between streaking contender Max Holloway and former lightweight title holder Anthony Pettis.
Max Holloway is currently riding an ultra impressive nine-fight win streak, his latest being a unanimous decision victory over Ricardo Lamas at UFC 199 in June. “Blessed” has scored six finishes during his current nine-fight win streak.
Meanwhile, Anthony Pettis is coming off a third-round submission victory over Charles Oliveira in a bout that served as his featherweight debut this past August at the UFC on FOX event in Vancouver.
Prior to that, the former lightweight tile holder suffered three-straight setbacks in a row to respective opponents Rafael dos Anjos, Eddie Alvarez and Edson Barboza.
“Showtime” will be looking to become the fourth fighter in UFC history to win belts in two different weight classes by defeating Holloway on December 10 in Toronto.
The UFC 206 fight card looks as follows:
Max Holloway (16-3) vs. Anthony Pettis (19-5)
Donald Cerrone (31-7, 1 NC) vs. Matt Brown (20-15)
Cub Swanson (23-7) vs. Doo Ho Choi (15-1)
