What Now for the UFC Featherweight Division Title?

Max Holloway moving up to the lightweight division to fight Dustin Poirier. Max Holloway will stay in the lightweight division. What’s the future of the division look like now ?

Jose Aldo is reborn, Two Fight win streak. Aldo probably has one more title run in him.

Aldo revealed on Wednesday afternoon that he intends to fight the last three bouts on his current contract with the UFC in 2019 and is hopeful all three fights are staged in Brazil before hanging up his gloves for good (via MMA Fighting): “

Aldo is fighting Alexander Volkanovski, Volkanovski is on a 16 fight win streak! He just beat Chad Mendes.

“While Aldo initially revealed that he hadn’t heard of the Australian fighter, which didn’t seem to bother Volkanovski all that much, Aldo’s head coach, Andre Pederneiras, is now singing a different tune. “We want him to fight Alexander Volkanovski, the guy who knocked out Chad Mendes, the guy who is the best ranked,” Pederneiras told Confraria da Porrada . “In fact, it is the following: we have a dream to dispute the title, which is difficult. So we have the dream of our last fight to get there.” MMA Mania and Sb Nation

Brian Ortega is a future featherweight champion either this year or in 2020. Ortega had a really tough fight with Max Holloway but that’s a learning experience, Ortega is extremely talented and a all around fighter.

Ortega hasn’t fought since that fight and I believe he will face rising star Zabit Magomedsharipov.

“He’s not a top 10 guy, he’s a top five guy,” Henry told FOX Sports. “He could be champ today. I’ve seen a natural in baseball, football, boxing, but never MMA. Just too many disciplines. He’s the first natural MMA fighter I’ve ever seen. He can do it all.” Fox Sports

Zabit is a human highlight video and it will be a interesting fight to watch. Zabit is an all around fighters and just beat world class fighter Jeremy Stephens!!

Last win for Ortega was Frankie Edgar who he knocked out in the first round!!!Edgar the legend hasn’t fought since beating Cub Swanson in April of 2018. Edgar was supposed to fight Chan Sung Jung in November but Edgar torn his biceps. Edgar hopefully this year gets a title shot, Maybe fights Aldo if he beats Volkanovski.
