Here it is. Max Holloway vs. Dustin Poirier trailer. Better late than never!

An interim lightweight title fight between featherweight champion Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier will headline UFC 236 on April 13.
The UFC 236 pay-per-view event will take place at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. An interim middleweight title fight between Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya will serve as the co-main event.

The UFC has opted to create an interim 155-pound title in his absence. According to White, Tony Ferguson was offered the interim lightweight title fight against Holloway, but he turned it down. Ferguson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. ESPN confirmed the fight was offered to Ferguson but it did not materialize for undisclosed reasons.

Poirier, who hasn't fought since July and voiced his frustrations with the division's status on social media earlier this week, said this bout came together quickly. He was scheduled to face Nate Diaz in November.

Holloway (20-3) will hang on to his 145-pound title in the move. The Hawaiian champion is riding a 13-fight win streak and is the No. 4 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, according to ESPN.

Poirier (24-5), of Louisiana, is coming off a murderer's row of lightweight opponents, including victories over Anthony Pettis, Justin Gaethje and Eddie Alvarez. Fighting out of American Top Team, the 30-year-old has won eight of his past nine contests, with six finishes.

The two have crossed paths previously. In 2012, Poirier submitted Holloway at UFC 143 in Las Vegas at 3 minutes, 23 seconds of the opening round. That bout was Holloway's UFC debut.

"Max and I were both kids seven years ago," Poirier said. "We've both been in the UFC, fighting top competition. That's a lifetime. We're completely different fighters now, and this is a completely different fight. Max is a proven, undisputed champion at featherweight. I don't even know if he's in [his] prime yet -- he might be approaching it. He's a tough test for me, and I am for him. I have a lot of respect for Max."
