Take a look at the Saturday, June 3rd UFC 212 pay-per-view in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, headlined by a featherweight title unification fight between Jose Aldo and Max Holloway.
The UFC’s next pay-per-view event is June 3rd in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Featherweight champion Jose Aldo and interim champ Max Holloway will meet in the main event. There are literally no other featherweights on this card, so if by any chance Jose Aldo withdraws from another fight, then uh …. paging Frankie Edgar? Would the Brazilians be interested in an all-American main event in which one of the combatants has lost to Aldo twice?
Anderson Silva has officially been removed from this event, so the co-main is indeed Claudia Gadelha vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz. The final fight of Vitor Belfort’s UFC career will be a main card fight against Nate Marquardt. Paulo Borrachinha fights Oluwale Bamgbose at middleweight, while the PPV broadcast opens up with welterweights Erick Silva and Yancy Medeiros. Your feature FS1 prelim sees the UFC debut of Marlon Moraes against Raphael Assuncao.
