UFC 240 weigh-in results: Holloway, Edgar on the mark for the title fight

Frankie Edgar enters this fight with a 23-6-1 record and has won 52 percent of his fights by decision.  It’s been over a year since we’ve seen Edgar in the octagon, as he’s had to recover from a torn bicep muscle, so it’s going to be interesting to see if there’s any rust. Edgar is used to fighting twice a year, and this is the first time he’s been gone for over a year since turning pro 14 years ago.

THE PREDICTION

Edgar is the underdog; he is past his prime and up against a young and dominant champion but that means nothing as he has the heart to overcome any odds. Holloway dwarfs Edgar but that is business as usual for the New Jersey native and he also only gives up a one-inch reach advantage which will be important when Edgar sets up his takedowns with jabs and level changes.

UFC 240 weigh-in results: Holloway, Edgar on the mark for the title fight

EDMONTON – MMA Junkie was on scene and reporting live from Friday’s early and official UFC 240 fighter weigh-ins, where all 22 fighters made weight without issue.

The early weigh-ins took place at the UFC host hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and preceded the ceremonial weigh-ins for the fans, which take place at 5 p.m. ET at Rogers Place in Edmonton. The same venue hosts Saturday’s event, which has a main card on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.

Among those weighing in were featherweight champion Max Holloway (20-4 MMA, 16-4 UFC) and former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar (23-6-1 MMA, 17-6-1 UFC), who meet in the main event. Both fighters were on the money at a championship weight of 145 pounds. Check out a highlight of their trips to the scale in the video above.

ESPN+ is presenting UFC 240 this coming Saturday, July 27. It’s bound to be a pretty big pay-per-view for the UFC, with big names like Max Holloway, Frankie Edgar, and Cris Cyborg on the card.

UFC 240 will be live from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

The main card features Holloway and Edgar in a UFC Featherweight Championship bout. Holloway is the current Featherweight Champion and has not lost in the division since losing a decision to Connor McGregor in 2013. Edgar is not someone for Holloway to take lightly either. He’s a former Lightweight Champion from Toms River, New Jersey. He’s been fighting in the UFC since 2007 with a record of 23-6-1.

The co-main event features Cris Cyborg vs Felicia Spencer. Cyborg is a former UFC, Strikeforce and Invicta FC Featherweight champion. And went unbeaten for almost 14 years. Spencer, meanwhile, hails from Montreal, Canada. While not quite in her hometown, this is going to be in her home country and likely will act as a home-field advantage for her. She is an undefeated fighter, and former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion herself.

As always, the early prelims start at 6:15 PM EST and will be live on ESPN+. The prelims will start at 8 PM EST and will also be available on ESPN.

UFC 240 weigh-in results: Holloway vs. Edgar official (FREE HD LIVE)

UFC 240 will take place Saturday night in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Before the fighters step in the Octagon, they hit the scales on Friday and they all did so successfully.

In the main event, Max Holloway will defend the UFC featherweight title against the former lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar. Holloway has been on an absolute tear at 145 pounds over the last several years but will be stepping into the cage coming off of a loss for the first time since his January 2014 fight with Will Chope, which Holloway won via second-round TKO. “Blessed” jumped up to 155 pounds to take on Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight title at April’s UFC 236 event and lost a unanimous decision.

 

Edgar returns to the Octagon for the first time in over 15 months and looks to capture his second UFC world title, this time at 145 pounds. After a knockout loss to Brian Ortega at UFC 222 in March 2018, “The Answer” bounced back with a unanimous decision win a little over a month later at UFC Atlantic City when he took on Cub Swanson.

Both fighters hit the championship mark and the fight is finally official for Saturday night.

The co-main event will see Cris Cyborg, the former UFC women’s featherweight champion, take on Canada’s own and unbeaten Felicia Spencer. Both fighters hit the mark.

In addition, Alex Volkanovski weighed in as a backup fighter and made weight at 144.5 lbs.

UFC 240 preview, Cris Cyborg’s future, UFC San Antonio fallout, Bellator Dublin, more

This is The A-Side Live Chat on MMA Fighting.

Today, José Youngs will be joined by UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber.

The two will give their reaction to an eventful UFC San Antonio, where fans saw Leon Edwards earn a domination decision over Rafael Dos Anjos in the night’s main event. Was this performance enough to catapult Edwards into title contention or does he still have a few more wins to go? Where does this setback land Dos Anjos? Is he still a viable contender at 170-pounds?

They will also look ahead to UFC 240 on Saturday night in Edmonton, featuring a featherweight title fight between Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar. Would a win cement Holloway as the greatest featherweight in UFC history? Will his last performance against interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier play a factor against his smaller foe? Oh, and what about this whole “face of Canada” thing he has going for him?

Is this Edgar’s last shot at reclaiming UFC gold? Where does Holloway rank among his past opponents? Does a win guarantee Edgar a spot in the UFC Hall of Fame or is that already a lock?

They will look towards Cris Cyborg’s murky future inside the UFC Octagon. With only one fight left on her UFC contract, could this be the last time we see the former champion don the UFC gloves? Does the future of the featherweight division rest on her shoulders? Does her opponent, Felicia Spencer, have a chance against the powerful Brazilian or is she set to face the wrath Cyborg? If Spencer does emerge victoriously, who else is there to face at 145-pounds?

There is plenty to discuss, so join us to rap on all of the above and much more. As we always say, this is your show, so we will talk about whatever it is you want us to talk about. The chat will start at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.

How to Watch UFC 240 Live On Facebook

How to Watch UFC 240 Live Online: So, July 27th is upon us, and we’re about to see two of UFC’s top fighters clash at the Rogers Place, Edmonton, Canada. Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar have all the respect for each other, and both have requested this showdown. Now tell me, are you a fan who can’t make it to Canada? Do you own a FIreStick or a Kodi-compatible device? You do know that you can stream it online, don’t you? Well, it requires a few clicks here and there, but it’s doable. Let me help you out. This is how you can watch UFC 240 live on FireStick or Kodi.

 

Watch Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar on Firestick

Streaming movies, shows, and sports has never been easier when you’re operating with a FireStick. This platform gives you numerous channels to watch from and enjoy a better streaming experience. If we were to talk about UFC Fights online, there’s always Fight Pass. However, I don’t know if the news hit you, but ever since ESPN+ got the rights to broadcast UFC, Fight pass has been subject to blackouts.

It’s quite frustrating, to be honest. All of you UFC fans were used to a specific way to purchase UFC events, and now it all changed. Well, not that much, to be honest. You can still buy UFC PPVs through ESPN and watch them live. It’s just a channel change you guys, nothing grand. Take a look at what you’ll be getting when you try to buy a UFC PPV in the US through Fight Pass.

 

“Due to broadcast restrictions, this video is not available within a UFC Fight Pass subscription or as a Pay-Per-View in your region. Please check your local TV listing for viewing information. This event is currently blocked out in your region.”

UFC 240 in the United States

This is called Blackout Restrictions. They occur whenever a TV broadcaster is showing a specific event on TV. As a result, all streaming services go through a blackout until the fight is over. Who wants to watch a UFC Fight hours after it finalizes? There’s no thrill in that. Oh, by the way, if you try the same move in the UK, you’ll get the same results. That’s because BT Sport is the official broadcaster in the region.

The Solution?

There’s a workaround to that. Well, it’s a simple solution. If you live in the UK or the US and own a FireStick, you can always use the Fight Pass application on the device. What about blackouts? Well, there’s a solution to that as well, a Virtual Private Network. This robust internet security tool can help you bypass UFC blackouts without a hitch. It enables you to shift your location to another region. All you need to do is connect to a server where the fight is not being shown on TV, and you’ll be able to purchase it through Fight Pass.

All in all, fans in the United States can stream UFC 240 using ESPN+’s application on FireStick. Not only that, but they can also use a VPN to appear in a region where UFC 240 is not on TV and watch in Fight Pass aswell. Now, for fans in the UK, your only option is Fight Pass since Bt Sport is not available on FireStick.

In case you’re wondering which VPN provider to choose, I suggest you go for NordVPN. With this robust provider, you get to choose servers in over 94 countries, which makes it so much easier to avoid regional blackouts. Nonetheless, opinions vary, especially when it comes to picking the perfect VPN. If this one doesn’t suit your needs, try other top VPNs for FireStick in the list below.

UFC 240 Live on Kodi

Kodi has intrigued me ever since I got the app. It has add-ons for almost any live stream out there. You just need to know where to look for them. As for UFC 240, there’s only one official way to stream it – The Netflix of Sports – DAZN. It’s quite simple to get a hold of such an excellent add-on. If you don’t know your way around Kodi’s repositories, let me show you how you can install DAZN’s add-on:

  • First, you need to go to your Kodi’s Add-ons. Enter Kodi Add-ons
  • Next, navigate to My Add-ons -> Install from Repository. Install From Repository Section
  • On the next screen, press on the Kodi Add-on Repository. Kodi Add-on Repository
  • Now, it’s in front of you; select Video Add-ons. Video add-ons
  • Search the list for the DAZN Add-on. It won’t take long as it stands out. Install DAZN
  • Click on the Add-on and install it in the next step. Install DAZN
  • When the installation ends, head back to your Home Screen.DAZN Launch
  • Select the DAZN add-on and stream UFC 240 live online.
  • Note that you need a valid DAZN subscription to be able to stream UFC 240. With DAZN, UFC events don’t come as PPVs; they’re included in your subscription.

On the other hand, before you can join the fight inside the Canadian Octagon, you need to know that this add-on is only available in Germany. If you live outside the country, you have to use a VPN to circumvent the geo-restrictions imposed on DAZN’s content. Therefore, use the likes of NordVPN, connect to a German server, and you’re good to go. You can also check the best VPNs for Kodi in the list below.

UFC 240: Holloway vs Edgar

On July 27th, an epic bout between Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar will blow the roof off the Rogers Place. That’s not all; you also get to see none other than Cris Cyborg in action against Spencer. Unfortunately, rumors are stating that this one could be Cris’ final match in the promotion. However, we might see her jump right into the Bellator Octagon sooner than we think.

A lot is at stake in the showdown between Holloway and Edgar. The Featherweight title is on the line as well as bragging rights. I don’t know how to predict the fight’s results, but I’m quite sure that both fighters will put on one heck of a battle.

Thanks to Giacomo Lemos’ recklessness, the 12-match card is one fight short. He was supposed to take on Tanner Boser but managed to fail a drug test on July 25th. There’s a lot of matches on the main card as well as the preliminary one. Let’s take a look at how UFC 240 is shaping up:

Main Card

  • UFC Featherweight Championship: Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
  • Cris Cyborg vs. Felicia Spencer
  • Geoff Neal vs. Niko Price
  • Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Arman Tsarukyan
  • Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Krzysztof Jotko

Preliminary Card

  • Alexis Davis vs. Viviane Araujo
  • Tanner Boser vs. Giacomo Lemos
  • Hakeem Dawodu vs. Yoshinori Horie
  • Gavin Tucker vs. Seungwoo Choi
  • Alexandre Pantoja vs. Deiveson Figueiredo
  • Gillian Robertson vs. Sarah Frota
  • Erik Koch vs. Kyle Stewart

UFC 240 live stream: how to view Holloway vs Edgar everywhere

The UFC 240 Octagon promotion comes from Edmonton, Canada, with the main event that has been going on for two years. Max Holloway eventually takes over 37-year-old former lightweight king Frankie Edgar for the UFC Featherweight title. Read on to find out how to get a UFC 240 live stream – no matter where you are in the world.

The main event was to take place two years ago, but after a series of injuries and defeats put the matchup on the ice, Max “Blessed” Holloway finally takes on Frankie “The Answer” Edgar.

Holloway enters the fight to defend its featherweight title after defeating Dustin Poirier at UFC 235, which ended a 13-fight, 6-year-old winning series. While UFC 240 Edgar & apss s first appearance in the Octagon in more than a year marks, after a bicep injury, the veteran ruled out a planned collision with Chan Sung Jung at UFC Denver in November.

The couple shares the highest billing with the title contest for women’s featherweight between Cris Cyborg and Felicia Spencer. Spencer goes unbeaten in seven fights but faces the experienced Cyborg, who makes her return to the Octagon after losing her title to fellow Brazilian Amanda Nunes on UFC 323.

Whoever encourages you during the MMA promotion, we’ll show you how to stream the UFC 240 card live from around the world – for American viewers you just have to go directly to ESPN +.

UFC 240 Full Fight – Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar Featherweight Main event Play-By-Play

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing mixed martial arts (MMA) fans its latest and greatest pay-per-view (PPV) event, UFC 240, this Sat. night (July 27, 2019) inside Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

UFC 240, which requires a subscription to ESPN+ to purchase, will be headlined by the five-round featherweight title fight pitting reigning division kingpin, Max Holloway, opposite former lightweight titleholder, Frankie Edgar, who once again tries to capture gold in the twilight of his combat sports career.

In the UFC 240 co-headliner, former women’s featherweight champion, Cristiane Justino, looks to rebound from her knockout loss to Amanda Nunes by squashing division up-and-comer, Felicia Spencer, in what marks the final fight on “Cyborg’s” current UFC contract. All that and so much more!

UFC 240 goes down this Saturday in Canada and I don’t know about you but I’m starting to get excited once I tell myself I’m not really paying for the three opening main card matchups.

Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar

MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 240 fight card below, starting with the UFC Fight Pass “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Max Holloway finds himself in the unique position of being a UFC champion entering a title fight coming off of a loss. Having failed to capture the interim lightweight title when he fought Dustin Poirier his last time in the Octagon, Holloway returns to 145 pounds on Saturday to defend his belt against Frankie Edgar.

A former UFC lightweight champion, Edgar will be making his third attempt to win the UFC featherweight championship when they step into the UFC 240 main event on Saturday.

Regardless of the stakes, this marks the third time that Holloway and Edgar have been booked. Both previous occasions were derailed by injury. If they make it to the cage on Saturday, who wins and how?

On a PPV card where only two matchups meet the minimum documented bout threshold, the main event is a refreshing pairing of 24 documented fights in the bank (Edgar) versus 20 (Holloway). And each fighter has a nice mixture of KO/TKO, submission, and decision finishes to keep us on our toes.

Frankie Edgar vs Max Holloway

With 4:00 and 3:42 of every round spent at distance, respectively, Holloway and Edgar certainly don’t mind throwing down in open space, but it’s Holloway who rarely tries to change the position of the fight with only two takedown shots in over 200 distance minutes (i.e., two takedowns shot attempts in over 13 three-round fights fought exclusively at distance) and four attempts in 31 clinch minutes.

When operating at distance, Holloway more than doubles Edgar’s head jab output and connects at a 35% clip to Edgar’s 20%. In the power department, Holloway throws 61% more volume while landing 49% to Edgar’s 37%. Edgar mixes things up to the body and legs a little better while Holloway targets the body well but rarely goes to the legs, reminiscent of the Jose Aldo playbook to take Edgar outback at UFC 200.
