In the night’s main event, featherweight champion Max Holloway put his belt on the line against former lightweight titleholder Frankie Edgar. Hawaii’s Holloway had a 13-fight winning streak snapped in his last outing as he moved up in weight to challenge Dustin Poirier for interim lightweight gold at 155 pounds. Edgar had been out of action for over a year, most recently defeating Cub Swanson by decision last April.
