On Saturday evening, the UFC yields to Atlanta, Georgia for the first time in 3 years using UFC 226, and this time, it’s bringing two title conflicts with it. At the main event, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway is moving around 155 pounds to struggle for an interim lightweight title against surging contender Dustin Poirier, a man who beat him before at featherweight. From the co-main event, one of the UFC’s fastest rising stars, Israel Adesanya, has his first shot in UFC gold when he takes on The Ultimate Fighter 17 winner, Kelvin Gastelum. It’s two fight-of-the-year contenders in the ATL with just two quite live underdogs for UFC betting fans to consider, so let’s get to it.

At just 27 years old, Holloway is currently making his case for the title of best featherweight of all time with just two dominant wins over Jose Aldo in 2017. Now, Holloway has his sights set on the name of greatest pound-for-pound fighter and is moving around 155 pounds to become only the fourth double champion in UFC history. Holloway’s game is all about pressure and pace. He places among the greatest paces in the featherweight division, casting roughly 15 strikes per minute and burying competitions under his persistent volume. Even if a fighter could get the better of him early on, as Aldo failed in both of their battles, few can stay blow for blow with Holloway as the fight drags to the third, fourth and fourth rounds. In most respects, Poirier is similar. “The Diamond” also functions at a high rate, with mix striking. The two differ though is that while Max has power and can hurt opponents, his finishes usually come as a result of accumulated damage. Poirier, in contrast, is among the single hardest blow-for-blow punchers in the lightweight division. He does not have to land many strikes to harm an opponent because his litany of UFC wins shows. Poirier also is a grappler compared to Holloway. Read more: totalprosports.pro
