Renewed champion Aldo takes on contender Holloway at UFC 212

With each fight, Holloway's confidence only continued to grow as he climbed the division rankings after starting his run outside the top 10.

UFC 212 takes place on Saturday, June 3 from the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil with Jose Aldo and Max Holloway headlining. I've fought many guys before, even in the (World Extreme Cagefighting) days, that have similar characteristics (to) him.

Holloway's guile extends even beyond that. That's one of the longest active winning streaks in the UFC.

Holloway, who comes in as the interim champion, has an edge in reach and will certainly go on the offensive.

"No, who has the all-time record?". I don't care. I want an undisputed career.

Why not go after another Brazilian legend?

Its not a superfight, in the purest sense of the word – which generally implies one champion changing divisions to fight a bigger opponent – but its a dream for hardcore fight fans.

Aldo has been stopped only twice in 28 career fights, while Holloway has only one loss by submission over 20 fights. But you nearly never heard chatter about them afterwards on social media.

I'm siding with Borrachinha, who looked devastating in this promotional debut against Garreth McLellan and is the more aggressive of the two.

The Aldo vs Holloway fight is one of the most anticipated UFC fights in a long time and it promises to be some of the best MMA action this year. "There are a lot of similarities in both of their styles, in terms of being busy strikers who are used to guys trying to take them down", said Kavanagh.Brazilian Aldo became the ruler of the UFC's 145lbs division in 2010 after the WEC merged with mixed martial arts' premier promotion.

While Aldo has continuously sought a rematch with Conor McGregor following his lopsided loss to the Irish superstar at UFC 194, the featherweight champion was recently told by UFC President Dana White that Conor McGregor has no desire to give Aldo a rematch.

UFC superstar Max Holloway says Conor McGregor is yesterday's news in the UFC. and he's the man of the hour. While Holloway lands 43% of his attempted strikes, he's avoided 67% of punches thrown at him while avoiding 83% of takedown tries.

You need to find one that offers a Russian Federation "server".

"Everybody can get a belt", Holloway said. This is what I love doing. Don't think anybody owes you anything. If you want something, work hard and use the hate as fuel. His last loss came almost four years ago. I said in December a star is going to be born.

Pederneiras: I think so. I was like, 'No, that's not me. I've got my coach cooking my foods here. "The thing that I worry about is myself". I wasn't about that life.

White said the waiting process has played out well. This was without a doubt the biggest fight of his career. Aldo is king of the division, historically and for the time being, but Holloway is ready for his latest challenge.
