UFC 236: Holloway vs Poirier 2

Main Card: 10am WA | 12.30pm SA NT | 1pm QLD NSW VIC TAS (Undercard showing earlier)

In the main event UFC featherweight king, Max Holloway, will go up to 155-pounds to fight Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight title while current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov serves out his suspension.

The Holloway-Poirier fight will actually be a rematch. On Holloway’s debut back in 2012 at UFC 143, Poirier claimed a submission win.

But this is a different Holloway; now a 27-year-old champion riding a 13-fight win streak, including a dominant title defence at the end of 2018 against a previously undefeated Brian Ortega.

The No. 3 ranked lightweight contender, Poirier, who holds a five-fight win streak of his own, was set to fight Nate Diaz last year before that match-up fell apart, and will now headline a UFC pay-per-view card for the first time in his career.

In the co-main event Israel Adesanya's shot at UFC gold will come sooner than many expected, with a title fight confirmed in April.

Adesanya will meet Kelvin Gastelum to crown an interim middleweight champion at UFC 236 in April.

Gastelum, who holds a 15-3 record, was scheduled to fight for the title at UFC 234 in Melbourne earlier this month but had his bout cancelled when champion Robert Whittaker was forced to withdraw.

With Whittaker sidelined after undergoing surgery to repair a hernia and twisted bowel, Adesanya will get his opportunity to claim the belt.

The 29-year-old Kiwi earned his spot as the No.1 contender for the middleweight title with a win over Anderson Silva at UFC 234.
