UFC 218: Holloway vs Aldo II preview (Heavy Hands #187)

New, 9 comments

Connor Ruebusch and Patrick Wyman break down the upcoming rematch between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo, then take a look at Overeem-Ngannou, Cejudo-Pettis, and Alvarez-Gaethje.

UFC 218 feels like a blast of fresh air after a few weeks of cards that, while generally solid, didn't exactly get the blood pumping. In the main event, former featherweight champion Jose Aldo steps in on short notice to rematch the man who took his belt, Max Holloway. Lightweight warriors Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje are set to find out who is the UFC's "most violent man." Heavyweight phenom Francis Ngannou gets a tough test in the form of Alistair Overeem, and Henry Cejudo looks to work his way into another flyweight title shot with a win over Sergio Pettis.

Listen in as we discuss these bouts, analyze the fighters, and make our predictions for the upcoming card.
