  • Reports Jose Aldo to rematch Max Holloway in UFC 218 headliner after Frankie Edgar's withdrawal

The UFC has targeted a featherweight title rematch between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo for UFC 218 on December 2, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Holloway stopped Aldo via third-round TKO in their 145 lb. title bout back at UFC 212 in June, handing the Brazilian his third career defeat.

Edgar withdrew from the fight earlier in the week after incurring an undisclosed injury in training.

KHON2 sports will have reaction from Holloway Saturday night on the KHON2 news at 6:00. Jose Aldo (26-3) has lost two of his last three fights.

Aldo was originally set to face number three ranked Ricardo Lamas on December 16th at UFC on Fox 26 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Each of those two losses, in turn, lost him the UFC featherweight title.

UFC 218 marks the second time UFC has been in Detroit, which hosted UFC 9 on May 17, 1996 at Cobo Arena. There is no word yet from the UFC on a possible replacement opponent for Lamas as of yet.

Tickets for UFC 218 are on sale and can be purchased for as little as $75 in the upper decks to as much as $1,965 for floor seats.
