UFC 231 Live : UFC 231 and the city of Toronto, Ontario play host to one of the greatest featherweight title fights of all time: Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega. The main event pits the division’s top two talents, fighters who are at their physical peak and who may still have room to grow. The only complication is the concern over Holloway’s health, but it adds a whole nother layer of intrigue. Can Holloway make weight? Will he be 100 percent when he returns to the octagon following a one-year layoff? We’ll see.
