MAPAPANOOD ang pinakahihintay na duwelo ng dalawang pinakamalupit sa featherweight class — Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar sa men’s division at Cris Cyborg vs. Felicia Spence sa women’s class.
Nakataya ang world title sa dalawang sagupaan sa main event na nakatakda sa Rogers Place stadium.
Matagal ang hinihintay ang duwelo sa pagitan nina Holloway at Edgar. Dalawang ulit na postpone ang nakatakda nilang laban sa
UFC 218 at UFC 222.
“However, due to the fighters recovering from their respective injuries, the matches were rescheduled. This time, UFC 240 will definitely see reigning champion Holloway defend his title against former lightweight titleholder, Edgar,” ayon sa opisyal na press statement ng FOX+
Kasalukuyang No.6 sa UFC pound-for-pound rankings, ang Hawaiian born na si Holloway ang reigning featherweight champion.
“This is kind of my moment to shock the world and shine,” sambit ni Spencer. “I and my team know something about me that the rest of the world doesn’t know yet, and I’m going to show the world on July 27.”
“Of course, ‘Cyborg’ is a legend in the sport,” aniya. “But at the same time, she’s just a human being. She’s got the best nickname in the sport, but she’s not actually a ‘Cyborg.’
