Max Holloway is one of the best strikers in the UFC and has truly come into his own since losing to Conor McGregor back in August of 2013. He’s won 11 straight fights heading into this fight with Edgar, and it’s quite possible he enters this fight as the slight favorite with odds around 4/5.
Frankie Edgar is a former lightweight champion and two-time contender at featherweight.
