Face Off! ‘Blessed’ Stares Down ‘Diamond’ In Atlanta
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is inching ever-so-closer to its UFC 236: “Holloway vs. Poirier 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event, set to go down this Sat. night (April 13, 2019) inside State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
Leading the charge will be the lightweight interim title fight main event between featherweight kingpin Max Holloway and top 155-pound contender Dustin Poirier, with the winner moving on to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov later this year.
In the UFC 236 championship co-main event, also scheduled for five punishing rounds, middleweight bruiser Kelvin Gastelum collides with 185-pound striking sensation Israel Adesanya for the interim title while current champion, Robert Whittaker, heals up from his recent “freak injury.”
Watch them all face off at the UFC 236 media day in the video above.
