UFC 231 will be headlined with an epic Featherweight Title showdown between the champion Max Holloway and Brian Ortega. The two were scheduled to fight at UFC 226 but it was subsequently postponed – now, the wait is over.
The Co-Main event features Valentina Shevchenko stepping inside the octagon against former UFC champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a Flyweight bout.
3 KEY POINTS
- Holloway has been undefeated since 2014
- Ortega is yet to lose during his MMA career
- No fighter has ever gone the distance with Ortega
Since then, Jedrzejczyk has decided to try her luck at Flyweight and December 9 will be her first fight in the 125-pound division.
