The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday, Dec. 2, for UFC 218. With the fight only a day away, the UFC 218 official weigh-ins are now in the books. While every fighter made weight, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway had to strip down to do it. When using the towel, the champion had more of himself exposed than he would have likely cared to thanks to a UFC wardrobe malfunction.
In the night’s headliner, the UFC featherweight champion will be facing off against former title holder Jose Aldo in highly anticipated rematch. The two mixed martial arts elites first met inside the octagon at UFC 212.
Holloway unified his interim title with a definitive TKO finish over Aldo. That being said, Holloway and “Scarface” will have to battle it out for the belt one final time.
The night’s co-headliner will feature a heavyweight battle between Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou. Overeem is on a two fight winning streak, but Ngannou has yet to be defeated inside the octagon. As a result, the two MMA warriors will face off for division supremacy.
At the recent UFC 218 official weigh-ins, each fighter stepped on the scale to make weight for their upcoming match ups. Like every other competitor for the fight card, Holloway made weight. However, the UFC featherweight champion had to strip down and be covered with a towel in order to hit his mark.
During the champion’s weigh-in, the individuals holding Holloway’s towel decided to readjust and flip the towel over the scale. The incident caused Holloway’s entire lower body to be exposed to the media present for the weigh-in. The awkward moment can be seen in the coverage provided by MMA Junkie below:
