It was not an easy weight cut for either Jose Aldo or Max Holloway at the UFC 218 weigh-ins.
The good news for UFC 218 is that unlike The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale, every fighter made weight, and we didn’t have to deal with a last-minute switcheroo for the championship main event. It was definitely not a weigh-in without incident, however, as both Max Holloway and Jose Aldo required the towel to make the 145-pound limit. A hunched over Aldo weighed 146 on his first attempt, but made it down to 145 when the towel came out. As for Holloway, he didn’t look much better on the scale, as lightweight contender Justin Gaethje helped hold the towel when he made it bang-on at 145, although Gaethje inadvertently caused a wardrobe malfunction by momentarily lifting the towel while Holloway was fully nude.
