The official UFC 212 poster has been released.

In just under a month, official featherweight champion Jose Aldo will take on interim featherweight champion Max Holloway in a title unification bout at UFC 212.

The official poster was released on Monday; check it out below.

Aldo, 30, is ranked at No. 4 in the pound-for-pound rankings and was reinstated as the official 145-pound champ after Conor McGregor was stripped of the title last year.

The Brazilian is one of the greatest champions in the sport and has defended his title against the likes of Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendes, and Kenny Florian. ‘Scarface’ is a terrific striker with arguably the best take down defense in MMA.

His opponent, 25-year-old phenom Max Holloway, has the longest featherweight win streak in UFC history (10) and is the No. 12 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world. The proud Hawaiian beat former WEC and UFC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis to win the interim title last year, becoming the first man to stop ‘Showtime’ with strikes.

UFC 212 also features a pivotal women’s strawweight bout between Claudia Gadelha and Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the co-main event, as well as Vitor Belfort’s last ever fight against Nate Marquardt.

The pay-per-view is scheduled to take place on June 3 at the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
