Aldo is coming off unanimous decision win over Frankie Edgar at UFC 200, earning the promotion’s interim featherweight title. While he was expected to challenge former champ and rival Conor McGregor in title unification bout, UFC officials instead stripped McGregor of his title and promoted Aldo to the new undisputed champion. As a result, the fight between Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis at UFC 206 was changed to an interim title fight.
Holloway would go on to decimate Pettis with strikes in the third round, extending his win streak to 10 straight.
