UFC Announces Updates To UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs Rodriguez
Jun. 25, 2021
Due to an injury with Max Holloway, the scheduled bout against Yair Rodriguez has been postponed.
Moving up as the new five-round main event will be the top 15 lightweight clash between No. 9 Islam Makhachev takes on No. 14 Thiago Moises. Makhachev intends to make the most of his first main event by delivering another dominant performance and declaring himself as the next top contender for the belt. Moises looks to make a statement by securing the biggest win of his career and break into the top 10.
The new co-main event will see the return of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate as she battles fellow veteran and No. 12 ranked Marion Reneau. Tate steps into the Octagon for the first time in almost five years and aims to prove that she is still among the elite of the division. Reneau has her sights set on adding another former UFC champion to her resume and defending her spot in the rankings.
