The UFC is bringing all the action this week with back-to-back, Friday & Saturday fight cards. On Friday, Roxanne Modafferi takes on Nicco Montano for the inagural women’s flyweigh title in the TUF 26 Finale. The next day, Max Holloway defends his featherweight belt for the first time, in a rematch with Jose Aldo on UFC 218. The PPV card is obviously where the UFC has put most of their focus, as it’s stacked top to bottom with exciting action fights.
