Though this is Aldo’s first fight since he was promoted to UFC Featherweight Champion on November 2016, he is not coming in totally untested. He defeated Frankie Edgar via decision at UFC 200 in July 2016 to win the interim featherweight title.

Before his 13-second knockout loss against Conor McGregor, Aldo was one of the most successful featherweight title holders, and one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world. For a decade, Aldo went 18-0 before falling to McGregor. He has the heart of champion, and with the home crowd in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil behind him, it will show at UFC 212.

Holloway may be the younger fighter, but he is in no way less dangerous than Aldo. The Hawaii-based fighter has won 10 straight fights since he lost to Conor McGregor in 2013 at UFC Fight Night 26. He rocked Anthony Pettis with a barrage of punches in the third round, knocking Pettis out and securing the interim featherweight title in 2016 at UFC 206.

Much like Aldo, Holloway made a name for himself with some big strikes. However, Holloway’s relentless assault will be too much for Aldo to handle. Holloway will get the win at UFC 212.
