UFC 212 extended video preview for 'Aldo vs Holloway' on June 3 in Rio

UFC 212 is all set to go down from HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sat., June 3, 2017 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and will feature a much-anticipated Featherweight title unification fight between division champion Jose Aldo and interim titleholder, Max Holloway.

It’s a bout that was rumored to go down earlier this year at UFC 208, but conflicting schedules as well as hide-and-seek games delayed the 145-pound throwdown. With 10 straight wins in his back pocket, Holloway looks to become the undisputed champion by taking out a man who has only been stopped once in the last 12 years.

That loss came to Conor McGregor, who, coincidentally enough, was the last man to defeat Holloway, as well.

In the co-main event, Claudia Gadelha faces Karolina Kowalkiewicz in a women’s Strawweight bout that could have major title ramifications. Also, Vitor Belfort will look to end his storied mixed martial arts (MMA) career on a high note as he faces off against Nate Marquardt in what will mark “The Phenom’s” retirement fight.
