Watch UFC 236 Live Stream: Holloway vs Poirier 2 Fight Free Online PPV Coverage. Ultimate Fighting Championship UFC 236 Event that will be held on April 13, 2019 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
UFC 236 Live may have an impact on who could feature in the main event. The card is sandwiched between PPV trips to Las Vegas and Brazil, both of which currently have title-fights scheduled. We wouldn’t be surprised to see UFC 237 gain another title-fight at some point either, given the potential drawing power of a Namajunas-Andrade PPV main event.
The title fight will crown a new interim champion in the lightweight class. The current lightweght belt-holder is Khabib Nurmagomedov. Holloway and Poirior met in Holloway’s debut in 2012 when Poirier submitted Holloway in the first round. Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya will serve as the co-main event. Holding an undefeated 27-0 record, Nurmagomedov is currently serving a nine-month suspension for his role in a brawl at UFC 229 against Conor McGregor.
The event is expected to be headlined by a rematch for the interim UFC Lightweight Championship between current UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier. The two previously met in a featherweight bout at UFC 143 where Poirier won by submission in the first round.
The rematch only came to be, according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, when former interim champion Tony Ferguson (24-3) turned down a shot to face Holloway. Holloway-Poirier is a rematch of their 2012 bout won by Poirier (24-5, 1 NC) via first-round submission at UFC 143. The fight doubled as the UFC debut for the then 20-year-old Holloway (20-3).
