UFC 212 - Aldo Vs. Holloway

UFC 212 will see the Undisputed World  Featherweight Championship crowned. The division got back to work after the whole Conor McGregor holding it hostage phase and now we get one of the best matchups of the year. Jose Aldo versus Max Holloway features two guys with a total of 5 losses in 48 career fights and both are considered champions. Jose Aldo won 18 straight fights before getting destroyed by McGregor but came back strong with another impressive victory over Frankie Edgar. With only 2 finishes in the UFC, Aldo has 16 career finishes in his career and will be looking for the knockout. Max Holloway is a UFC veteran at the age of 25 with 16 UFC fights since entering the UFC in 2012. Holloway has been on a tear winning 10 fights in a row leading winning the interim championship. With only 2 career submissions, Holloway ground game is underrated and a part of his game we could see this fight. The co-main event features the top 2 women in the strawweight division Claudia Gadelha versus Karolina Kowalkiewicz with both fighters only losses coming by of the champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Vitor Belfort is on the card in what may or may not be his last fight in the UFC.
