Renewed champion Aldo takes on contender Holloway at UFC 212

"This, I can tell you for sure".Against Aldo, the man considered one of the world's top pound-for-pound fighters, Holloway is considered the underdog.After losing his title in absolutely brutal fashion to Conor McGregor at UFC 194 in December 2015, Aldo made it clear that he wanted an immediate rematch."This is history". Aldo opened up the round by delivering a punishing blow to Holloway's torso.

"I gotta say Conor [McGregor]'s the greatest 145-pounder of all time cause he knocked out Aldo, who was clearly the greatest", Rogan said (h/t TheMacLife.com). I think Aldo, he's a silver-backed gorilla.

The main event in UFC 212 betting is a Featherweight Championship match between two title holders. Surely Holloway's title fight would come next.

On Saturday, June 3, the UFC will host UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Holloway found his rhythm in the third, landing with bad intentions more frequently.

On Conor McGregor: "That guy was the 2015 champ". "He can go run around wherever he at with the belt and celebrate it". Aldo eventually gave up his back and turtled away from the fence. "Like I've said before, since I was 17 (years old) I watched this guy".

Holloway said: "I have a lovely son at home, Rush you have a new gold belt coming home for you baby". Instead, he went up to two different weight classes and took on the likes of Nate Diaz and Eddie Alvarez for his next UFC showings. A 25-year-old McGregor with a torn ACL, an injury which forced him to sit on the sidelines for 10 months, comprehensively defeated a 21-year-old Holloway with a foot injury to a unanimous decision. He said this is big-game hunting. "I'm going to be here for a long time". Good for him. I ain't going to try to chase someone around; I ain't going to try and talk about someone who's not talking about me.

Claudia Gadelha (15-2) had exactly the type of fight she needed to get another shot at strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

It's become very fashionably for newly-installed UFC champions to immediately call for money fights.

. Get the hell out of here with that sh*t. He did manage to last the distance with Sam Alvey in his last fight but I can't really back someone so inconsistent.

Holloway is happy to oblige to either one of them. "I'm going home and I'm going to eat some ice cream".

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. The victor gets to sit atop the featherweight throne, yet the title still will be rightly disputed by McGregor, even though he's unlikely ever to return to the weight class. I could've sat there and weeped and cried and, 'Where is my title shot, blah, blah, blah.' I don't want to say it, but you're a bitch, you're a bitch if you act like that, for real.
