UFC 218 sees featherweight kingpin Max Holloway square off against former dominant champion Jose Aldo in Detroit this weekend
The highly-anticipated rematch marks the second fight in six-months between both men, with Holloway earning the 145-strap following an impressive TKO victory over the Brazilian in Sao Paulo.
In the co-main event, #1 ranked heavyweight Alistair Overeem will provide the sternest test of the highly-rated Cameroonian knockout artist Francis Ngannou‘s career to date.
