UFC 218 results, recap, and link wrap up: Holloway punishes Junior, Ngannou deadens Reem


That’s what mixed martial arts (MMA) fans witnessed in the UFC 218 main and co-main events last Saturday night (Dec. 2, 2017), as both Max Holloway and Francis Ngannou destroyed their respective opponents inside Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

And that was just the tip of the pay-per-view iceberg.

Elsewhere on the card, Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje lived up to the hype with an insane war that left both men hospitalized, while Henry Cejudo blanketed Sergio Pettis to stay afloat in the 125-pound title chase. And let’s not forget about the curtain-jerking “Tornado.”
