UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Rodriguez Betting Preview

Max Holloway returns to the Octagon this evening to face Yair Rodriguez in a highly-anticipated UFC featherweight contest.

Former champion Holloway last fought in January, turning in one of the greatest performances in the history of the sport as he beat Calvin Kattar via decision while breaking numerous striking records.

Rodriguez (13-2), meanwhile, is returning after a two-year absence, his decision win against Jeremy Stephens in October 2019 marking his last bout.

The Mexican, ranked third at 145lbs, has won 12 of his last 13 fights, while No1-ranked Holloway (22-6) has lost three of his last five – all via decision.

The first of those defeats came in April 2019, in a clash with Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight title, before Holloway lost his featherweight belt to Alexander Volkanovski in December of the same year. The majority of fans believe the Hawaiian should then have been awarded the victory in his rematch with Volkanovski last July, though the judges saw it differently.
