The UFC featherweight title will be unified in just a few months.
On Friday, shortly after UFC president Dana White said a featherweight unification bout between Jose Aldo and Max Holloway was a “done deal,” Flo Combat is reporting a date and location is set.
Jim Edwards of Flo Combat reports Aldo and Holloway will face off at UFC 212 on June 3 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Aldo will be returning for the first time since defeating Frankie Edgar at UFC 200 last July. Aldo captured the interim featherweight title with a win and later was promoted to undisputed champ after the UFC stripped Conor McGregor of the 145-pound strap.
Holloway, meanwhile, has been on an incredible run. “Blessed” has rattled off ten straight victories inside of the Octagon. His last loss was to lightweight champ Conor McGregor in 2013. Holloway captured his own interim championship in December when he dominated Anthony Pettis en route to a third-round TKO win.
Additional bouts for UFC 212 will be coming in the following weeks.
