Technically, the next UFC event is the TUF 26 Finale on Friday, but that’s just the appetizer for Saturday’s entree of UFC 218 – a much more grand affair headlined by the rematch of featherweight champ Max Holloway and former champ Jose Aldo.
Holloway and Aldo are just one fight, though. The rest of the card has some doozies. Like, Eddie Alvarez versus Justin Gaethje, who’ve just capped off the TUF 26 season as opposing coaches. And then there’s Alistair Overeem versus Francis Ngannou, which, given these two sluggers’ penchants for face-punching, means someone is definitely going to sleep at the end of that bout.
