Mick Maynard and Sean Shelby have been having themselves a busy Friday the 13th today. They keep adding violent fights to their December cards and this time it’s Raging Al Iaquinta vs Paul Felder. They will square off at UFC 218, which is already a ridiculously stacked card.

Thus far, the UFC have announced these fights for UFC 218:
- Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
- Alistair Overeem vs. Francis Ngannou
- Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje
- Henry Cejudo vs. Sergio Pettis
The added fight of Felder vs Iaquinta makes 218 one of the more impressive cards that we have seen in a while.
Al Iaquinta (13-3-1) has gone 8-1 in his last nine fights and has victories over some serious names. He finished Diego Sanchez, Joe Lauzon, Ross Pearson, and Rodrigo Damm by KO/TKO; He also beat Kevin Lee and Jorge Masvidal by decision. In that time, he also managed to go to war with the UFC and tell fans to go screw themselves.
Of his nine fights in the UFC, Paul Felder (14-3) has earned himself four performance bonuses. Currently, Paul is on a two-fight win streak and his last fight saw him beat Stevie Ray with viscous elbows.
There is no way that this fight can fall flat and in all honesty, neither can this card. UFC 218 takes place on December 2, 2017 in Detroit.
