UFC 218 Results: Bonus Winners, Highlights, Attendance And Gate
(https:)
He again stopped Jose Aldo in the third round after allowing the Brazilian to tire before ramping up the pressure and earning the stoppage win. Holloway's striking, resilience and Octagon I.Q. are exceptional. He used a steady diet of straight punches to quickly prove his superiority in the fight. By the third round, a winded Aldo was fighting on heart alone as Holloway's strikes created the same type of cumulative punishment that led to his stoppage win over the former champion in June. Originally, Frankie Edgar was supposed to be challenging Holloway for the title, but he suffered an injury and Aldo stepped in to replace him. Perhaps now Edgar will get the next crack at Holloway. As for Aldo, it's time the future Hall of Famer seriously consider retirement.

Donald Cerrone says he's moving back to lightweight, reducing fight frequency
(https:)
For the better part of six years, Donald Cerrone was a world-class lightweight. He was a perennial contender in the WEC, and he remained one of the best in the world at the weight class up until he challenged for the UFC title in 2015. Cerrone came up short in that fight and afterwards, with limited prospects for another title shot anytime soon, he made the move up a weight division where he immediately was very successful, rattling off four wins and finding himself on the cusp of a title eliminator bout. Recently though, things have taken a bad turn for Cerrone who has lost his last three fights in a row, and with his career once again at crossroads, it appears “Cowboy” intends to ride back down a familiar path: the UFC lightweight division.
