It appears Max Holloway will get his desired date and location for his next UFC featherweight title defense.

A matchup between Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) and top contender Brian Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) is in the works for UFC 226, MMAjunkie learned from two people with knowledge of the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC has yet to make anything public.

UFC 226 takes place July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Holloway vs. Ortega is expected to co-headline the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

There should still be 2 main card fights to be added... at least 1. I can't see 2 of those last 4 being on the ppv, but they are all solid fights.

They'll add a women's fight too. 225 and 226 look great.

I hope this is the norm moving forward. STACKED PPV cards. I stopped buying PPV's years back because they were getting so lack-luster for the 55$ and up price tag. If the cards start getting more and more like this, I'd be inclined to order and watch the next morning (I work nights) more often.
