The UFC is coming back to Detroit, but not with their anticipated main event. Frankie Edgar was looking to challenge for the UFC featherweight title again, but a facial injury has forced him out of his fight with champ Max Holloway. Instead, Jose Aldo will get his shot to get his title back at UFC 218 when he meets the man that stopped him in his last fight.
That’s not all though - not even close. The co-main event will be a titanic battle of heavyweights when Francis Ngannou meets Alistair Overeem, and the card will also feature a battle of lightweight TUF coaches when Justin Gaethje takes on Eddie Alvarez.
Here’s a look at the current card for the December 2nd event in the Little Caesar’s Arena in Motown:
Francis Ngannou vs. Alistair Overeem
