On Saturday evening, the UFC returns to Atlanta, Georgia for the first time in 3 years with UFC 226, and this time, it’s bringing two title fights with it.
At the main event, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway is moving around 155 pounds to struggle for an interim lightweight title against towering rival Dustin Poirier, a guy who beat him once before at featherweight.
From the co-main occasion, one of the UFC’s fastest rising stars, Israel Adesanya, gets 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 think about, so let us get into it.
Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier Odds & Tips UFC 236
What’s there to say? At only 27 years old, Holloway is already making his case for the title of greatest featherweight of time together with just two dominant wins on Jose Aldo at 2017.
Now, Holloway has his sights set on the title of greatest pound-for-pound fighter and is moving up to 155 lbs to become only the fourth dual winner in UFC history.
Holloway’s game is all about pressure and pace. He places one of the highest paces from the featherweight division, throwing about 15 strikes every second and burying competitions under his relentless volume.
Even when a fighter can get the better of him early on, as Aldo failed in both of their battles, few are able to remain blow for blow with Holloway as the fight drags into the third, fourth and fourth rounds.
In most respects, Poirier is comparable. “The Diamond” also works at a high rate, with combination striking. The two differ though is that while Max has power and can hurt opponents, his finishes usually come as a result of injury.
Poirier, by comparison, is among the only hardest blow-for-blow punchers in the lightweight division. He does not have to land many strikes to harm an opponent as his litany of UFC wins shows. Poirier is a grappler compared to Holloway.
