The answer is an injured Frankie Edgar, the question is how did we get to Max Holloway vs. Jose Aldo 2, headlining UFC 218.
Hawaii’s Holloway 25, is on a 11 fight win streak, coming off dethroning Jose Aldo at UFC 212, with a 3rd round TKO.
Aldo 31, from Brazil is the former WEC & 2-time UFC Featherweight Champion. Aldo won 18 straight before a knock out loss to Conor McGregor, won the vacant title, defeating Frankie Edgar 7 months later, and now looks to hold UFC gold for a third time.
UFC 218 is set for December 2, at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.
