Max Holloway is set to make his first title defense at UFC 218. The Dec. 2 event will go down inside the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. However, there has been a setback in the night’s headlining match up.
Holloway was initially set to face off against former champion Frankie Edgar for the night’s main event. However, Edgar has since been pulled from the night’s event. The former champion has suffered an injury.
With the recent news of Edgar’s removal from UFC 218, fighters and fans have been taking to social media to voice their thoughts on the matter. Now former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has come forward to offer himself as a replacement for Holloway’s next opponent.
Over Twitter, Aldo stated:
“Hey @BlessedMMA,I want my title back. I deserve the rematch. Let’s make this happen @ufc”

Holloway unified his featherweight title with an impressive TKO victory over Jose Aldo at UFC 212.
Aldo isn’t the only fighter looking to get a shot at the featherweight title. Ricardo Lamas recently took to Twitter to throw his hat into the ring.
I’m down. ??♂️ ? #ufc218
