As you await Santa, watch FS1's UFC 218 replay special tonight

Filed under: News, UFC

As Christmas Eve winds down and you await the big man, you can catch a special UFC 218 replay on FS1.

The 90-minute special, “UFC 218 Special Presentation,” debuts at 10 p.m. ET (7 p.m. PT) on FS1, and replays air throughout the week on FS1 and FS2.

UFC 218 took place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, and in the headliner, featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) posted his first title defense and made it 2-0 over former champ and late replacement Jose Aldo (26-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC).

“UFC 218 Special Presentation” features that title fight, as well as two other main-card bouts: Francis Ngannou’s (11-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) brutal first-round knockout of fellow heavyweight Alistair Overeem (43-16 MMA, 8-5 UFC), and ex-lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez’s (29-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) third-round TKO stoppage of fellow contender Justin Gaethje (18-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC), which earned “Fight of the Night” honors.

This is the second straight year for a UFC replay special on FS1; in 2016, fans awaited Santa with a replay of UFC 206.
