UFC 218 Results: Bonus Winners, Highlights, Attendance And Gate
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.
