Check out the official poster for UFC 218, which got a mixed review from headliner Frankie Edgar.
UFC 218 takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
On paper, it’s a pretty solid lineup: a title fight, notable names, intriguing matchups and vets with lots of finishes – all in a variety of weight classes.
Here’s the official poster:
With a featherweight title fight between streaking Hawaiian champion Max Holloway (18-3 MMA, 14-2 UFC) and fan favorite Edgar (22-5-1 MMA, 16-5-1 UFC) in the headliner, “UFC 218: Holloway vs. Edgar” also features heavyweights Francis Ngannou (10-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) vs. former title challenger Alistair Overeem (43-15 MMA, 8-4 UFC).
All four are featured on the poster, though as Edgar wonders, “Why they got me all crazy eyed?” (via Instagram):
(But hey – at least he only subtly pointed out the misspelling of “championship” on the poster, with his #IdLikeToBuyAVowel hashtag.)
