UFC 212 Preview: Jose Aldo vs Max Holloway Breakdown

UFC 212 takes place this weekend at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, headlined by a featherweight unification bout between champion Jose Aldo and interim title holder Max Holloway.

Ahead of this weekend’s pay-per-view, Dan Hardy and John Gooden gave a detailed look at what we can expect on the latest episode of “Inside the Octagon.”

After winning the interim title at UFC 200 with a win over Frankie Edgar, Aldo was promoted to undisputed champion thanks to Conor McGregor vacating the featherweight belt to reign at 155-pounds. Holloway, meanwhile, has been on an absolute tear with 10 consecutive wins. He was crowned the interim title holder with a win over Anthony Pettis at UFC 206 last December.
