UFC eyeing Holloway-Rodriguez for Nov. 13 main event
The UFC is looking to reschedule a featherweight bout between Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez for the Nov. 13 Fight Night main event, UFC president Dana White told TSN's Aaron Bronsteter.
The matchup hasn't been finalized.
The 145-pound contenders were initially slated to collide in a July headliner, but Holloway withdrew due to an injury. Rodriguez did not get a replacement opponent.
Holloway, a former champion, is coming off an impressive decision win over Calvin Kattar in January. The Hawaiian rebounded from back-to-back losses to current titleholder Alexander Volkanovski.
Rodriguez hasn't stepped into the Octagon since a victory over Jeremy Stephens in October 2019. "El Pantera" is riding a three-fight unbeaten streak and hasn't lost since 2017.
A light heavyweight tilt between Ovince Saint Preux and Philipe Lins is the only other bout reportedly set for the Nov. 13 card, which does not yet have an official location.
