UFC 218 takes place at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Sunday December 3. The main card live on Pay-Per-View features five bouts, with the featherweight title contested in the headliner of the show.
The reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway defends the belt facing off Jose Aldo. The latter is a replacement for the previously announced Frankie Edgar, who was forced to pull out from the contest due to injury earlier this month.
The Holloway and Aldo bout is also a rematch. In their initial encounter in June the champion won the belt by the second-round TKO with punches.
Also on the main card heavyweight Alistair Overeem takes on Francis Ngannou. Henry Cejudo meets Sergio Pettis at flyweight. Lightweight Eddie Alvarez battles out against Justin Gaethje. In addition, Tecia Torres and Michelle Waterson square the differences at women’s strawweight.
The preliminary card on FS 3, Edge and UFC Fight Pass comprises four bouts, following a four-fight card on UFC Fight Pass. The complete UFC 218 fight card and the Australian broadcast time can be found below.
