The highly anticipated trilogy fight between current featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski and former featherweight champion Max Holloway is slated for July. The news was first reported by Ariel Helwani.

While the fight will take place in July, the dates aren’t finalized yet by the UFC. According to Helwani, the first choice for this bout is July 2, but the fight could also take place on July 30.

UFC is targeting Alex Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway 3 in July, sources say. First choice, at the moment, is July 2, but could be July 30, as well. Few moving parts on those two cards. But looking like that one goes down in July either way at this point,” Ariel Helwani tweeted.

Volkanovski and Holloway first fought at UFC 245 back in 2019 and that fight was an extremely close one, however, the Aussie was able to win the fight on the judges’ scorecards. The pair again fought at UFC 251 in Fight Island, Abu Dhabi.

The rematch also went to the judge’s scorecards and this time it was closer than the first fight and again the judges scored it for Alexander Volkanovski.
