Fresh off his dismantling of Jose Aldo back in June, UFC Featherweight Champion of the World, Max Holloway, will attempt his first successful title defense in Detroit, Michigan, USA, against former UFC Lightweight Champion of the World, Frankie Edgar. I could’ve also wrote that as, “Holloway to fight Edgar in Detroit” but that doesn’t pad a word count, does it?
This fight pits HalfGuarded.com #1 ranked featherweight against the HalfGuarded.com #3 ranked featherweight in a battle where the winner will surely be given the distinction of, “BEST FEATHERWEIGHT IN THE WORLD AS DETERMINED BY HALFGUARDED.COM” which is a prestigious award.
Francis Ngannou vs Alistair Overeem has also been announced for this card. Nothing else is official, though the rumors our sources (read: Twitter) are telling us is that Baby Pettis will fight Henry Cejudo on the same night, probably on the same PPV. One supposes the UFC could run two PPVs on the same day from the same city from the same arena, but that doesn’t seem likely, does it?
UFC 218 Card
- Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar for the UFC Featherweight Championship
- Francis Ngannou vs Alistair Overeem for the distinction of Best Non-American Black Heavyweight Striker in the UFC
- Sergio Pettis vs Henry Cejudo for the Right to be a Victim of Demetrious Johnson
Detroit is still a burnt out shit hole.
