UFC 218 is set to take place tomorrow night as Hawaiian Max Holloway will look to defend his UFC featherweight title against former champion Jose Aldo in an immediate rematch. The two are scheduled for a five-round title fight in the main event of the evening, which takes place at the Little Caeser’s Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

On Friday morning, fighters took to the scales for the official weigh-ins. All fighters from the UFC 218 card made weight and interestingly, both of the main event title fighters needed to disrobe and have the towel held up for them to make the official title fight weight of 145 pounds.

Max Holloway

Holloway nearly had his manhood flashed in front of all the media as he stepped on the scale. Justin Gaethje who also weighed in for his fight with Eddie Alvarez on the card helped to hold the towel for Holloway. Gaethje and another individual helping to hold the towel made an error of holding the towel in front of the scale and quickly raised it to place it in the correct position. Holloway was covering himself up as it happened and officials recorded his weight at 145 pounds.

Aldo, who appeared to have a very tough weight cut was the last fighter to step on the scale and did not make weight on his first attempt. Aldo’s weight was 146 pounds with shorts on and the former champion looked to be in disbelief and pain, hunching over on the scale. Aldo took his shorts off behind a towel and stepped back on the scale with the official recording his weight at 145 pounds to make the title fight official.

Jose Aldo

Max Holloway beat Jose Aldo in their last competition at UFC 212 in June by TKO in the third round.
