Jose Aldo Vs. Max Holloway Featherweight Unification Fight Set For UFC 212
Jose Aldo will be involved in another featherweight unification contest as he is set to face off against Max Holloway at UFC 212.
ESPN's Brett Okamoto confirmed the booking with UFC president Dana White while further reports claimed it would go down in Brazil at UFC 212, according to Flo Combat.
Just taped 5ive Rounds with guest @danawhite. He told me Aldo vs. Holloway is a done deal ... but couldn't remember the date.

After being dethroned in just 13-seconds to Conor McGregor, Aldo subsequently fought for the interim title before being promoted to the undisputed champion as a result of the promotion stripping the Irishman.
Meanwhile, Holloway, just like Aldo, captured the interim belt after beating Anthony Pettis in a masterful performance at UFC 206. The Hawaiian-fighter extended his impressive win streak to 10.

But while Holloway finally gets booked to fight Aldo, he'll have to go to enemy territory with the pay-per-view slated to take place in Brazil.
No other fights have been booked, though it appears as this unification bout will top the card as they return to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 3rd.
Yet, that doesn't faze the 25-year-old...
WHAT A FIGHT! Who you got?
