After Last Minute Changes, Including Loss Of Main Event, Here’s The New UFC 218 Fight Card And Bout Order

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for another exciting night of fights. This time, the mixed martial arts promotion is getting ready for UFC 218. With the night of fights just over a week away, and a change in the card’s main event, its time to take a look at the full fight card lineup for UFC 218.

UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway unified his interim title with a vicious TKO victory over Jose Aldo at UFC 212. Moving forward, the champion was set to make his first title defense against former UFC champion Frankie Edgar in the main event of UFC 218. However, Edgar was forced to pull out of the event due to an injury. As a result, Jose Aldo stepped up on short notice to fill the main event slot. Now Holloway will have to fight for his title twice against the former champion, as the two are now set for a rematch in the upcoming main event.

UFC 218 goes down Dec. 2 inside the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. For a full breakdown of the night’s lineup and start times, check out the information below:
