By John Balfe - 5 Dec 2016

Featherweights Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis will meet for interim gold in the main event of UFC 206 in Toronto on December 10th, with both fighters looking to stake a claim for themselves in a division currently in a state of flux following Conor McGregor being stripped of the 145-pound title he won from Jose Aldo last year.

Title implications aside, the bout between Pettis and Holloway is a match-up between two of the division’s flashiest strikers. Pettis, a former lightweight champion, dropped to featherweight earlier this year after a run of bad form at 145-pounds which saw him drop successive bouts to Rafael Dos Anjos, Eddie Alvarez and Edson Barboza. Pettis won his featherweight debut in August, submitting Charles Oliveira with a third round guillotine.

Holloway, meanwhile, has been one of the division’s most effective fighters since losing a decision to Conor McGregor in August 2013. The Hawaiian has won nine straight at 145-pounds and he knows a tenth will guarantee him a shot at the gold belt he has been chasing for more than a year now.
