UFC 240 Live Results
One of the UFC’s current bests and a longtime great will collide in the main event of UFC 240 — which takes place from Rogers Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada — with the UFC Featherweight Championship on the line.
In the main event, Max Holloway defends the title against Frankie Edgar. The two were previously scheduled to face off at UFC 218 in December 2017 and UFC 222 in March 2018, but both times the fight was postponed due to injuries.
Holloway will come into this fight off his first loss in six years, as he came up short in an interim lightweight title bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 236. The Hawaiian previously won 13 straight, claiming the interim UFC Featherweight Title by finishing Anthony Pettis at UFC 206 and unifying the title with Jose Aldo at UFC 212. Holloway successfully retained the 145-pound belt against Aldo at UFC 218 and Brian Ortega at UFC 231.
Edgar is a former UFC lightweight champion, winning the title with an upset over BJ Penn at UFC 112 and retaining it against Penn in a rematch and against Gray Maynard twice before dropping the title to Benson Henderson and losing the rematch.
Edgar dropped to featherweight in 2013 and won seven of nine bouts in the weight class (the two losses coming in title fights against Aldo) before getting knocked out by Ortega at UFC 222. Edgar last fought in April 2018, defeating Cub Swanson one month after the knock out loss. Edgar was scheduled to face “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung later that year but pulled out due to injury.
The co-main event will see Cris Cyborg in her first fight since losing the UFC Women’s Featherweight Title to Amanda Nunes at UFC 232, and what may be her final UFC fight. She will face Felicia Spencer, a former Invicta women’s featherweight champ who scored a first-round submission over Megan Anderson in her UFC debut two months ago.
