The featherweight division is easily becoming one of the most exciting in the UFC. Fighters like Jose AldoChad Mendes and Frankie Edgar have made this division stacked, and each fighter is doing everything in their power to fight for the belt.

This is certainly the case with Conor McGregor and Max Holloway, who both will be squaring off with each other on the UFC on Fox Sports 1 card. Both fighters will be looking for an impressive win, and this featherweight bout has Fight-Of-The-Night written all over it.

Holloway comes into this bout with a record of 7-2. In his UFC tenure, he has beaten a durable Leonard Garcia and was able to deflate the hype around Justin Lawrence. He has a huge reach for being a featherweight, which serves him well, as he likes to use his jab to pick apart his opponents. He has a fan-friendly style, and he seems to never be in a boring fight. He is coming off a close loss to Dennis Bermudez, so his willingness to win will be at an all-time high.

One of the most hyped up fighters in the UFC lately has been McGregor. In his UFC debut, he was able to pick apart Marcus Brimage, scoring a TKO victory in the first round. He is on a nine-fight winning streak, and is one of the most dangerous strikers in the featherweight division. Holloway will arguably be his toughest test to date, so he will need to be aggressive and dynamic if he wants to come out with the victor.

Both of these fighters love going to war, trading shots standing, which makes this an exciting bout to look for on August 17, 2013. So, will Holloway defeat McGregor, who has a lot of hype behind him right now? Stay tuned!
