UFC 231 Holloway vs Ortega

The UFC returns to Canada, where we will see a couple title bouts on this troubled card. UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway (19-3) will defend his title against Brian Ortega (14-0) and Joanna Jedrzejczyk (15-2) faces Valentina Shevchenko (15-3) for the vacant UFC Women's Flyweight Championship

Despite the multiple changes to the fight card, UFC 231 is an great event for hardcore MMA fans. With all the evenly matched fights, this lineup is one of the year's best events for true handicappers. There's good money to be made... if you can pick winners Saturday night.

The weigh-ins for this event will be more interesting than most and could tell some interesting stories.

  • Max Holloway had to pull out of this fight while cutting down to 145 back in July, it was short notice but it's still worth watching.
  • Most fans will be shocked to find out Holloway is 3 inches taller than Ortega, who seemingly is a big Featherweight. What will they look like when squaring off on Friday?
  • Shevchenko has fought many larger opponents than Jedrzejczyk, including a victory over Holly Holm (145lbs). How much bigger will she be standing face to face with Joanna.
