The UFC is running not one, but two pay-per-view shows in July. UFC 239 happens on July 6th in Las Vegas as part of International Fight Week, while July 27th sees UFC 240 go down at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In the main event, reigning men’s featherweight champion Max Holloway makes his first title defense of 2019, as he takes on former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar. The co-main will see former women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg take on unbeaten Canadian Felicia Spencer in a three-round showdown.

This card is more than halfway filled, so not a lot of available slots left. I’d like to think that there will be a couple of major fights added — perhaps the rumored Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Brian Ortega bout could fit the bill.

Here is what is currently on tap for UFC 240:

Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
Cris Cyborg vs. Felicia Spencer
Erik Koch vs. Kyle Stewart
Alexandre Pantoja vs. Deiveson Figueiredo
Alexis Davis vs. Viviane Araujo
Lauren Murphy vs. Mara Romero Borella
Gillian Robertson vs. Sarah Frota
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Armen Tsarukyan
