UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliveira fight card

New, comments

A look at the Sunday, August 23rd UFC debut in Saskatchewan, where Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira headline in a five-round featherweight clash.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

There are only, and I do mean only, three UFC events next month. The last one is a Fight Night card in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. In the main event are featherweight contenders Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira, neither of whom has headlined a UFC event before. The co-main is a rescheduled bout between Erick Silva and Rick Story, which was postponed due to visa issues for the Fight Night in Florida that saw several fighters removed from the card.

The Canadian presence on the main card features Patrick Cote against Josh Burkman in a fight I swear has happened before but actually hasn't, as well as TUF Nations' Chad Laprise and Olivier Aubin-Mercier in their respective bouts.

Once again, please make note of the Sunday, August 23rd date (and the earlier main card start time!). Here's a look at the full bout order:
