About UFC 236 (from Wikipedia)
UFC 236: Holloway vs. Poirier 2 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is scheduled to be held on April 13, 2019 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
This will be the first UFC pay-per-view to not be sold through U.S. television providers for residential customers. Per an extension of its new rights agreements with ESPN through 2025, UFC pay-per-views are now distributed exclusively through ESPN+, and viewers must have an active subscription to the service in order to purchase and stream the event. At the same time, the price of the PPV was lowered from $64.99 to $59.99, and a promotional offer was launched allowing new subscribers to purchase a bundle of the PPV and a one-year subscription to ESPN+ for $20 more.
The event is expected to be headlined by an interim UFC Lightweight Championship bout between current UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier. The two previously met in a featherweight bout at UFC 143 where Poirier won by submission in the first round.
An interim UFC Middleweight Championship bout between The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen middleweight winner Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya has also been slated for the event and is expected to serve as the co-headliner.
A bantamweight bout between Boston Salmon and Khalid Taha was initially scheduled for The Ultimate Fighter: Heavy Hitters Finale. However, the pairing was removed from the card for undisclosed reasons and has instead been rescheduled for this event.
Paige VanZant was briefly linked to a matchup with Poliana Botelho at the event. However, just days after the pairing was leaked, VanZant announced that she would not be competing on the card due to a fractured right arm. Botelho is expected to remain on the card against Lauren Mueller.
