If you had asked someone a couple of months ago, what the chances were that 2017 could end with Jose Aldo as the featherweight champ again, you probably would have heard ‘zero’. But, due to an injury to Frankie Edgar, this could in fact happen.
Aldo lost the featherweight title for the second time in his career this past June, when he was stopped by Max Holloway in round three. As a result of a facial injury to Edgar, however, the Brazilian star’s been tapped for an immediate rematch tonight at UFC 218.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features UFC commentator and fighter, Dan Hardy, breaking down the compelling fight. Can Aldo score an upset win tonight? We’ll find out soon enough.
