UFC 212 is here, and fight fans all over the globe are in for a real treat. For just the seventh time in UFC history, there will be a championship unification bout. José Aldo is the current UFC Featherweight Champion, while Max Holloway is the current interim UFC Featherweight Champion. Tonight, the question of who’s the biggest badass in the featherweight division will be answered.
Aldo is one of the best MMA fighters of all-time, as he’s a two-time UFC Featherweight Champion and the proud owner of a 26-2 record. In Aldo’s most recent fight, the 30-year-old Brazilian picked up a unanimous decision victory over Frankie Edgar at UFC 200. It was a nice bounce back performance from Aldo after getting knocked out by Conor McGregor just 13 seconds into their UFC 194 bout.
Holloway (20-3) comes into tonight’s unification bout on an absolute tear, as the 25-year-old has won his last 10 fights. Since dropping a unanimous decision to Conor McGregor back in 2013, the Hawaiian native has none nothing but take care of business. In his most recent fight, Holloway knocked out Anthony Pettis at UFC 206, earning “Performance of the Night” honors in the process.
Now that the stage has been set for this must-see fight, let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch Aldo vs. Holloway.
