UFC 231: Holloway vs. Ortega

  • Network: Pay-Per-View, Fox Sports 1, UFC Fight Pass
  • Venue: Scotiabank Arena
  • Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • Event Date: December 8, 2018 11:00PM

UFC returns to Toronto on December 8, and this time they're hoping their main event AND women's Flyweight Title fights actually go down as planned.

UFC 231 features Max Holloway, who has pulled out of several fights this year after never pulling out of a single fight in his career prior. Earlier this summer, he was slated to take on Brian Ortega before being yanked from the planned bout due to weight cutting complications. Reportedly, UFC has Renato Moicano on standby in the event that he or Ortega have issues making the weight.

Also added to the show is the UFC's all-time best strawweight in Joanna Jedrzejczyk, against one of the greatest bantamweights of all-time in Valentina Shevchenko. The kicker? Joanna is moving up, Valentina is moving down, and they're meeting at women's Flyweight to determine a new champion after inaugural champ Nicco Montano was stripped of the title earlier this year. 

The action gets started at 6:30 PM EST on UFC Fight Pass, before moving over to Fox Sports 1 at 8 PM EST. At 10 PM EST, you can order the pay-per-view, and can even order it in the video player above.
