Holloway and Poirier make weight for UFC 236


Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier have made weight ahead of their interim lightweight title bout at UFC 236.

Holloway, the current featherweight champion, will move up to lightweight to fight Poirier for the first time since 2012 when he lost in the first round.

Holloway weighed in at 155 pounds for the fight with Poirier tipping the scales at 154.5 pounds.

The co-main event on the card sees Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya compete for the UFC interim middleweight belt.

They weighed in at 184 and 183 pounds, respectively.
