UFC Dennis Bermudez

On Wednesday night, a featherweight affair between Dennis Bermudez (pictured) and Max Holloway was announced for UFC 160.

Both 145-pounders will be riding a three-fight winning streak into the May 25 contest.

After losing to Diego Brandao in “The Ultimate Fighter 14” finals, Bermudez has bounced back to beat Pablo Garza, Tommy Hayden and most recently Matt Grice.

At the tender age of 21, Holloway is the Octagon’s youngest athlete. “Blessed” owns a 7-1 professional record, with his lone blemish coming against Dustin Poirier.

The up-and-comers will meet in the card’s prelims.

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the extravaganza.

Here is the event’s current lineup:

Jeremy Stephens vs. Estevan Payan

Robert Whittaker vs. Colton Smith

Dennis Bermudez vs. Max Holloway

KJ Noons vs. Donald Cerrone

Gunnar Nelson vs. Mike Pyle

Abel Trujillo vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Stephen Thompson vs. Amir Sadollah

TJ Grant vs. Gray Maynard

James Te Huna vs. Glover Teixeira

Junior dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Cain Velasquez (UFC heavyweight champion)
