Max Holloway will put his featherweight title on the line against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 245 on December 14. The Daily Telegraph initially reported the matchup.

Holloway (21-4) is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Frankie Edgar at UFC 240 in July. Arguably the greatest featherweight fighter of all time, “Blessed” holds wins over the likes of Edgar, Cub Swanson, Charles Oliveira, Jeremy Stephens, Anthony Pettis, Jose Aldo (x2), and Brian Ortega.

Volkanovski (20-1) is currently riding a 17-fight win streak, most recently defeating Jose Aldo by unanimous decision at UFC 237 in May. Volkanovski holds notable Octagon victories over Aldo, Chad Mendes, and Darren Elkins.
