TORONTO – UFC 231 fight week officially kicked off Wednesday with a pre-fight press conference, and MMAjunkie was on the scene.
UFC 231, which takes place at Scotiabank Arena and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, features two title fights at the top of the card, and all four competitors were in attendance at Winter Garden Theatre.
In the main event, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) defends his title in a highly anticipated rescheduled bout with Brian Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC). And in the co-headliner, Valentina Shevchenko (15-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Joanna Jedrzejczyk (15-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) square off for the vacant women’s flyweight title.
