UFC 160: Max Holloway vs. Dennis Bermudez Booked

Max Holloway UFC

Ron Chenoy-US Presswire

UFC 160 will feature an important featherweight bout between TUF veteran Dennis Bermudez and dynamic striker Max Holloway. This is just one of many exciting bouts on this card, and it has the makings to be a war as both fighters have exciting styles.

Coming into this bout, Bermudez is coming off an impressive war with Matt Grice, where both fighters went back and forth in the stand up game. Bermudez was able to pour it on in the third and earned a unanimous decision victory. This fight showed his heart, and he is now on a three-fight winning streak. One more and it would be hard not to put him right up there with the best of the division, where Jose Aldo is the champion.

Holloway is coming off a controversial split-decision victory over Leonard Garcia. It was an exciting bout that showcased both fighter’s stand up skills. He is now 7-1 in his fighting career, with his lone loss being against a durable and top contender in Dustin Poirier. A win over Bermudez would prove he has what it takes to compete with a competent wrestler, showing that he is more than just a striker.

Bermudez likes to throw heavy leather at his opponents, making him a fan-favorite to watch. Expect fireworks when he squares off with Holloway as he also like to trade leather. The winner is one step closer to a title shot, which will be defended by Aldo against Anthony Pettis in the summer.

If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.
