Top-billing UFC fights are back on Saturday, July 8, as UFC 290 takes center stage at the T-Mobie Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a stacked card with a headline main event that sees a unification bout of current UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski taking on interim belt holder Yair Rodriguez.

The reason that this bout is so anticipated is that you never know what you are going to get from Rodriguez. He may be a longshot with the bookies, but the 15-3 MMA (10-2 UFC) fighter is an exciting and fearsome striker who has added submission elements to his game in recent fights. Volkanovski (25-2 MMA, 12-1 UFC) has been a dominant champion, but the way that Rodriguez attacks from different angles and creates opportunities for his offense is something that the Australian champion will have to factor in when going for attacks of his own.
Volkanoowsi is unbeaten as a featherweight, but he is not a fighter that takes wins for granted. He will have put in the effort to be ready for Rodriguez, and this bout is well worth the price of entry on its own.
