This weekend, the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Brazil for UFC 212 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
The main event features one of the most exciting matchups in recent memory, as UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo faces off against interim champ Max Holloway in a title unification bout.
The event also features a thrilling strawweight matchup between Claudia Gadelha and Karolina Kowalkiewicz, which serves as the night’s co-main event. MMA legend Vitor Belfort will also make an appearance on the pay-per-view against veteran Nate Marquardt.
Ahead of this weekend’s event, the UFC released Episode 1 of the fan-favorite “Embedded” series.
