Hawaii meets New Jersey in Detroit.

UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway will look to defend his unified title for the first time when he meets former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar at UFC 218.

ESPN.com first reported the booking. Multiple UFC officials did not immediately respond when contacted by MMAjunkie.

UFC 218 takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The night’s main card airs on pay-per-view, though an official bout order has yet to be revealed.

Holloway is currently ranked No. 1 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA featherweight rankings, while Edgar sits at No. 3.

More on this in just a moment.
