UFC 172 Gains Max Holloway-Andre Fili Bout

UFC 172 Gains Max Holloway-Andre Fili Bout

Two featherweights have been added to the April UFC 172 card, as Max Holloway takes on Andre Fili.

The event goes down April 26 from Baltimore and the Baltimore Arena. In the headliner, Jon Jones puts his UFC light heavyweight title on the line vs. Glover Teixeira.

Holloway (8-3) entered the UFC unbeaten, but has went just 4-3 since. The Hawaiian is coming off a “Knockout of the Night” performance in a win over Will Chope earlier this month.

Prior to that, Holloway dropped two straight fights to Conor McGregor and Dennis Bermudez.

Fili (13-1) scored a win over Jeremy Larsen in his Octagon debut last October. The Team Alpha Male fighter has won nine in a row, and sports one of the greatest nicknames in all of MMA with “Touchy.”

Below are the bouts announced to date:

UFC Light Heavyweight Championship
Jon Jones (c) vs. Glover Teixeira

Welterweight: Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine

Lightweight: Joe Ellenberger vs. Yancy Medeiros

Featherweight: Andre Fili vs. Max Holloway
