Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few days away from its upcoming UFC 251 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, locked and loaded for Sat., July 11, 2020 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. That’s where Alexander Volkanovski (21-1) and Max Holloway (21-5) will run it back for the 145-pound strap in the five-round co-main event.
“The Great” topped “Blessed” when they first went to war at UFC 245 last December.
Volkanovski opened as the -200 (1/2) favorite against +175 (7/4) for ex-champion Holloway. Expect that number to shift in both directions as money continues to trickle in closer to fight night. The winner will have no shortage of available contenders as Zabit Magomedsharipov, Brian Ortega, and Chan Sung Jung are all in the mix.
