The Big Ticket UFC Fights That we Are All Waiting For: UFC 218
The UFC is getting more attention and winning over fans by the minute all over the world. The fighting circuit has been spectacular and people get hooked immediately. For all those that are craving more action we have some great news: there will be some spectacular fights to end the year and some up and coming fighters that want to make a name for themselves.
There has been a lot of talk about Ngannou; even the UFC’s boss Dana White hasn’t hesitated a bit when it comes to talking about the star power that this fighter has. The Cameroonian hammer has been kicking some serious ass in his time in the UFC, and is already a feared opponent. Ngannou has won five fights in a row, four of them by the way of knockout; those are impressive numbers. We sure are glad that we don’t have to get in the ring to test his punches.
Ngannou’s next fight will take place on December 2 in Detroit; his opponent will be Alistair Overeem in UFC 218. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on Ngannou, but the main event that night will be Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar. This a fight that will move a lot of money in the betting websites and the bookmakers are predicting that the champ Max Holloway is the favorite to retain this belt against a dangerous opponent.
Holloway has won his last eleven fights and is one the best all-around fighters in the world. Now that he has proven that he is a worthy champion, the new goal is to keep the title as long as possible. As we can all remember, he has beaten very tough opponents on his way to UFC 218. He has defeated eight American fighters and two Brazilians, to complete the count he beat a Swedish fighter: Akira Corassani.
This Hawaiian brawler has had time to rest and prepare for this fight. The last time we saw him in the ring he fought against José Aldo on June 3 in Rio de Janeiro. Holloway went all the way down south to beat Aldo in front of his home crowd, and that was a real testament to the fighter that Max really is.
We’ll see if Frankie Edgar, the New Jersey native, can really challenge Holloway in the cage. In his last loss Edgar was defeated by José Aldo, so the math does not add up for Edgar, but anything can happen. So we’ll wait and see.
