UFC 240: Holloway vs. Edgar is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on July 27, 2019 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
A UFC Featherweight Championship bout between current champion Max Holloway and former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar is expected to serve as the event headliner. The pairing has been scheduled twice before, first at UFC 218 and then again at UFC 222, but in both instances the fights were scrapped at the time due to both fighters suffering respective injuries.
A women's flyweight bout between Lauren Murphy and Mara Romero Borella was initially scheduled for this event. However on June 20, promotion officials elected to move the bout a week later at UFC on ESPN 5.
