As many expected would be the case, Frankie Edgar will get his chance to end the reign of Max Holloway after all. According to a new report by MMA Junkie citing sources speaking on condition on anonymity, the bout will take place at UFC 222 later this year.
Edgar was actually scheduled to face Holloway at UFC 218 last December, but the former lightweight champion suffered a broken orbital bone in training that forced out of the bout. Still, it's a welcome sign for fans of UFC featherweights. Holloway took on Jose Aldo instead, and as the Hawaiian star did last June, he finished the legend in round three.

The ever-resilient Edgar bounced back, however, beating Jeremy Stephens at UFC 205 that November before entering a scintillating performance to finish Yair Rodriguez in May of 2017. But he once again fell short, dropping a five-round unanimous decision to the South American Scarface at UFC 200 in July of 2016. Prior to that, he claimed an interim title against Anthony Pettis at UFC 206 in Toronto.
Now competing at his more natural weight class as a featherweight, the 36-year-old is looking to become only the fifth fighter in UFC history to hold world titles in two weight classes, joining Penn, Randy Couture, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre as a dual-weight UFC champion.
