Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway will return to the Octagon this summer.
“Blessed” will be facing Yair Rodriguez in a featherweight matchup that is being scheduled to headline the UFC Fight Night 191 event on July 17.
UFC President Dana White announced the fight himself on ESPN.
Holloway, 29, hasn’t fought since January when he defeated Calvin Kattar at UFC Fight Island 7.
Rodriguez, 28, will be making his return to action after almost a two-year- hiatus. The last time the Mexican was seen inside the Octagon was in October 2019 when he beat Jeremy Stephens.
