UFC 218 is Saturday night at the new Little Caesar’s Arena, and a feathweight title fight headlines the event as Max Holloway defends his championship against Jose Aldo. Aldo comes in at 26-3 against Holloway’s 18-3 record. It promises to be a brawl for the belt. Other main card fights include Alistair Overeem vs. Francis Ngannou, Henry Cejudo vs. Sergio Pettis, Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje and finally, Tecia Torres vs. Michelle Waterson.
For Holloway and Aldo, it’s a grudge match. Holloway won the first fight by TKO at UFC 212, and he’ll look to duplicate that result. Aldo, of course, has other plans, as he has said he plans on taking the belt and retiring a champion.
