If you weren’t on board with the UFC’s decision to tap Jose Aldo for a rematch with Max Holloway on December 2nd, then the “Go to War” trailer below might change your mind. Or, maybe not.
Holloway took the featherweight title from Aldo in June, by stopping the featherweight in round three. Holloway was then booked to fight Frankie Edgar in his first title defense at UFC 218, but the latter had to pull out due to a reported, broken orbital bone.
There was a lot of calls for Cub Swanson to replace Edgar, since he hasn’t fought for the belt yet and Aldo has lost the title twice. But, Swanson has one fight left on his current deal, and let’s not forget, Aldo is widely regarded to be the greatest 145’er of all time.
UFC 218 will go down in Detroit, Michigan.
