The holiday season is here and so is UFC 206 and the 2016 Heisman trophy vote.
First let’s talk about UFC 206. It’s fight week and Max Holloway will face Anthony Pettis for the interim featherweight crown in the headline bout from the Air Canada Center in Toronto, Canada.
The main event may not be the originally scheduled title rematch between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson that was cancelled due to injury. The 37-year-old Cormier tore his adductor tendon in his groin while training for his rematch with Johnson. But don’t worry, the Holloway vs. Pettis fight is one of the more intriguing bouts to materialize during the last few months.
These two young fighters are the future of the UFC.

A kickboxing force at just 25 years of age, Max Holloway (16-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) has already cemented his place as the UFC’s all-time winningest featherweight. Holloway also happens to be in the midst of a divisional-best, nine-fight win streak, which has him on the cusp of his first title.

Who Will Take Home Heisman Glory?
Heisman glory awaits one of four college football superstars. The odds-on favorite to win the top single person honor in collegiate sports is Louisville Cardinals’ quarterback Lamar Jackson.
