On Saturday night, mixed martial arts fans will watch UFC 218: Holloway vs. Aldo 2 live streaming online and on televised pay-per-view. The latest UFC event will have a main event where the UFC Featherweight Championship is on the line with current champion Max Holloway defending against Jose Aldo. Here’s the latest UFC PPV preview, including fight card odds and how to watch UFC 218 live streaming online or on television Saturday night.
According to Vegas Insider on Friday, the current UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway was a -300 favorite on the fight odds to retain his title on Saturday night. Challenger Jose Aldo may be reaching the tail end of his stellar career, and is priced as a +250 underdog. However, fans saw at the previous UFC pay-per-view that there were plenty of new champs ready to be crowned in a night of upsets and comebacks.
Aldo sports a 26-3 record with 58 percent of his wins coming from knockouts or TKOs. His opponent also has just three losses with 18 wins to go with a 44 percent KO/TKO rate, and a 44 percent decision rate. Holloway has about four inches on his opponent and has an impressive 80 percent takedown accuracy. Fans will be interested to see how things go in the second encounter between these two flyweight stars.
A total of five fights make up the main PPV card, including a women’s strawweight match. That will feature Michelle Waterson taking on Tecia Torres. Lightweights Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje will also go at it, as will flyweight fighters Henry Cejudo and Sergio Pettis. A battle of heavyweight stars follows that as Francis Ngannou tries to defeat Alistair Overeem. The main event is, of course, the championship fight with featherweight champ Max Holloway defending against Jose Aldo.
In the fights beyond the main event, Francis Ngannou (-210) is favored over Alistair Overeem (+180), while Justin Goethe (-185) is favored over Eddie Alvarez (+160), and Henry Cejudo (-280) is favored over Sergio Pettis (+240). In the women’s strawweight battle, Michelle Waterson (+205) is the underdog in her fight against Tecia Torres (-240). It’s been said that Waterson could have the best chance of any underdog on the main card to score an upset tonight, so keep an eye on the women’s fight for that.
