UFC 212 will feature one of the biggest featherweight bouts in recent history. A championship match between Jose Aldo and top contender Max Holloway will be the feature bout of the evening.
Brazil’s own Anderson “The Spider” Silva is rumored to face dangerous striker, Luke Rockhold and that would make for a terrific matchup. Rockhold has already been offered and accepted the fight however Silva still needs to respond before it is official.
No matter who the challenger is a fight with The Spider is always a must see. The challenger for Joanna Jedrezejczyk’s title will be decided as both of the top contenders from the the Women’s Strawweight division as Claudia Gadelha will take on Karolina Kowalkiewicz. This should be a hard hitting fight and the premier women’s bout of the evening.
