UFC 206 Holloway vs. Pettis: Live On now! gonna be war!
This is it! another event on ppv. This is gonna be good. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back at it again, as the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organization is set to stage UFC 206, which is set to go down tonight (Sat., Dec. 10, 2016) live from inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, airing live on pay-per-view (PPV). Headlining the card will be an interim Featherweight title fight between former UFC Lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis, against No. 2-ranked 145-pound contender, Max Holloway. In the co-main event of the evening, Donald Cerrone looks to keep his perfect run going at Welterweight when he faces long-time veteran, Matt Brown. Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto UFC 206 will be held, with No. 2 Max Holloway and No. 5 Anthony “Showtime” Pettis fighting for the interim 145 pound (featherweight) title. However only Holloway is eligible to win the belt, as Pettis failed to make the 145-pound weight limit during Friday’s weigh-in. Pettis had a final weight of 148 pounds, and as a result he will also forfeit 20 percent of his final purse to Holloway. Holloway, who has a record of 16-3-0, has won his last nine fights since losing by unanimous decision to Conor McGregor in August 2013. Also on the line for Holloway is a shot at undisputed featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Pettis has a UFC record of 19-5-0, and he defeated Charles Oliveira by submission in August in his first fight at 145 pounds. UFC 206 is a co-main event, with the welterweight fight between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Matt Brown being the other marquee bout. Cerrone weighed in at 170.5 pounds Friday, and with a record of 31-7-1 (one no contest) he’s won his last three fights since losing to Rafael Dos Anjos last December. Brown, who is 22-15-0 in his UFC career, weighed in at 171 pounds but has lost four of his last five fights. Below is the full schedule of fights on the UFC 206 schedule.
