Major Featherweight Fight Set For UFC 206

UFC 206 may not feature Georges St-Pierre, but the Toronto show just got a huge shot in the arm.

A huge featherweight fight is set for the show, as former UFC Lightweight Champion, #6-ranked Anthony "Showtime" Pettis will face off with #3-ranked Max Holloway. This beefs up a show that already features Daniel Cormier, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, and not much else by the way of big names within the sport.

Pettis (19-5) moved to featherweight this summer after losing three consecutive fights at lightweight. Pettis stepped in and defeated Charles Oliveira in August, making his presence in the division known.

Holloway (16-3) is in a unique position, as he's in line for a potential title shot. Unfortunately for him, the Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor is competing at UFC 205 for the lightweight title, and interim champion Jose Aldo doesn't want to fight at all.

UFC 206 takes place on December 10 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. The show will be headlined by a UFC Light Heavyweight championship fight between champion Daniel Cormier and challenger Anthony "Rumble" Johnson. Fightful.com will have full coverage of the show.
