A pair of welterweight bangers are reportedly headed to Florida in April.

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has taken aim at Tony Ferguson in his most recent social media post, stating Ferguson only has himself to blame for missing out on a title shot.
Earlier this week the UFC announced an interim lightweight title fight between Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier would headline UFC 236 in April. Ferguson turned a fight with Holloway down according to UFC president Dana White, and Khabib addressed this in his most recent post.
The top of the UFC Prague billing just concluded with the promotion’s #6 ranked light heavyweight Thiago Santos drop the #4 ranked Jan Blachowicz in the third round, and finish him off with ground strikes. Santos is now 3-0 at 205-pounds, winning each of them by way of finish. The win for Santos also broke up a four-fight winning streak for Blachowicz.
Max Holloway will look to become the next champ champ in the UFC when he meets Dustin Poirier for a 155-pound interim title at UFC 236.
The odd man out of the lightweight title picture, for now at least, looks to be Tony Ferguson. Instead of El Cucuy getting another shot to win a 155-pound interim title, the UFC will go with a bout between current featherweight champ Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier for the interim belt.
The big news on Friday night from the UFC was confirmation that featherweight champion Max Holloway will move up to lightweight to challenge Dustin Poirier for the interim title in the UFC 236 main event. For fans wondering why Tony Ferguson isn’t involved despite being the #1 contender, it appears as if Ferguson had no interest in being in another interim championship.
The UFC is introducing yet another interim title to the middleweight division.
Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya are set to square off at UFC 236 on April 13, ESPN reported Tuesday afternoon. The bout will be for interim 185-pound gold. ESPN’s report did not state whether or not Gastelum vs. Adesanya will serve as the event’s main event.
“The Irish Dragon” Paul Felder got the better of a three-round standup battle with the company’s #10 ranked James Vick in the UFC Phoenix co-main event.
Felder landed some hard haymakers in the opening round, plus a spinning elbow that hit its mark. Vick landed quite a few clean crosses of his own. Some more solid right hands landed for both guys throughout, as well as a fair amount of leg kicks. Felder had a big moment when he wobbled Vick, and chased him down in an attempt to finish. Some damaging calf kicks also scored for Felder, forcing Vick to limp on a few occasions.
