Max Holloway

UFC 236 now includes two interim title fighting.

According to Brett Okamoto ESPN, Max Holloway will raise pressure on UFC 236 to go on Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight UFC belt.

Last Holloway was spotted at the UFC 231 event at the University of Toronto where Brian Ortega had not left the rest to protect his beltweight belts. Holloway rides on a striking striking 13 striking battle with notable victories over Jose Aldo, twice, and Anthony Pettis among others.

Meanwhile, Poirier and Holloway previously fought at UFC Holloway back in 2012. Poirier introduced the current plumbweight champion in the first round, giving Holloway his first professional loss.

Last Poirier was seen in the Octagon back in the UFC of July on Fox's event in Calgary, where he was against the lightweight old king Eddie Alvarez by TKO in the second round.

Poirier was later organized to fight in UFC 230 against Nate Diaz, but eventually forced to pull out with injury.

Many people would think that fighting a temporary title is being created as the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has made public that he will not fight until November.

UFC 236 has been installed for April 13, and the location has also been disclosed. According to Okamoto, the event will take place at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

This is what the UFC 236 battle card has so far.

Main event: Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier for the lightweight title temporarily
Co-main event: Israel Adesanya vs. Kelvin Gastelum for the middle-middleweight title
Paige VanZant vs. Poliana Botelho – women's flying weight
Wilson Reis vs. Alexandre Pantoja – flight pressure pump
Salmon Boston vs. Khalid Taha – bantam pressure
