Dennis Bermudez vs. Max Holloway added to UFC 160

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

An exciting featherweight matchup is on tap for the UFC's Memorial Day weekend show, as Dennis Bermudez takes on Max Holloway.

The featherweight division is full of exciting fighters from top to bottom, and the UFC booked two of them for UFC 160 in May. Dennis Bermudez (10-3), who just had an incredible war in his last fight, will fight the 21-year-old Hawaiian Max Holloway (7-1) in Las Vegas. UFC officials confirmed this mouthwatering matchup on Twitter:

Bermudez's decision win over Matt Grice at UFC 157 was one of the most incredible fights in recent memory. The TUF 14 alum was seemingly on his way to a KO loss in the opening round, but rallied in the final two (nearly forcing a stoppage of his own) to claim a FOTN victory. Since losing to Diego Brandao in the TUF finale, Bermudez has defeated Pablo Garza, Tommy Hayden, and the aforementioned Grice.

Holloway entered the UFC as a late-notice replacement against Dustin Poirier. While he lost by submission, he acquitted himself quite well and showcased some good striking skills. Since then, he's rattled off 3 wins in a row over Pat Schilling, Justin Lawrence, and Leonard Garcia.

It is unknown whether or not this fight will air on the FX or Facebook portion of the preliminary card.
