Jose Aldo will look to continue his dominance over the UFC featherweight division when he puts his 145-pound title on the line later tonight (Sat., June 3, 2017) at UFC 212 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, against red hot Max Holloway. This will be Holloway’s third UFC main event appearance, but his first visit to South America.
As combat fans gear up for what can potentially be the Fight of the Year at 145 pounds, EA Sports so nicely dropped another simulation to ease our pre-fight minds. In what can easily be considered the best championship fight in UFC featherweight history, Aldo and Holloway trade head-rattling blows for five complete rounds. The action included flying knees, spinning liver kicks, superman punches, clean head kicks, and just about every other strike in the arsenal. In the end, it was Holloway who did enough on the judges’ scorecards to snatch the belt from Aldo on enemy soil.
Let us watch as Holloway attempts to turn video game into real life this evening at UFC 212.
