Max Holloway will aim to get back to winning ways on Saturday, when he takes on Britain’s Arnold Allen in a UFC Fight Night main event.

Former featherweight champion Holloway failed to regain the belt in his last fight, as he fell to 0-3 against the man who dethroned him, Alexander Volkanovski.

But the Hawaiian has been faultless against every other featherweight he has fought since 2013, including Jose Aldo (twice), Frankie Edgar, Brian Ortega, and current interim champion Yair Rodriguez.

Meanwhile, Allen wants to take another step towards becoming Britain’s next UFC champion, after teammate Leon Edwards won welterweight gold in 2022 and retained it in March. The Ipswich fighter has won 12 fights in a row, including 10 in the UFC, and overcame Calvin Kattar last time out.

Here’s all you need to know.

When is it?

The event will take place on Saturday 15 April, at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

The prelims will begin at 10.30pm BST (2.30pm PT, 4.30pm CT, 5.30pm ET), with the main card following at 1.30am BST on Sunday 16 April (5.30pm PT, 7.30pm CT, 8.30pm ET on Saturday).
