Aldo-Holloway at UFC 212 marks new featherweight era
By Dave Doyle, The Sports Xchange on June 02, 2017, at 6:34 a.m.

Saturday should go down as the night the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s featherweight division closes the door on the Conor McGregor era.

Champion Jose Aldo (26-2) will meet interim champ Max Holloway (20-3) to unify the titles in the main event of UFC 212 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It will also end a saga that began with McGregor knocking out Aldo in just 13 seconds to claim the gold in December 2015.

The Irish superstar never attempted to defend the 145-pound belt, instead splitting a pair of huge-money welterweight matches with Nate Diaz, then knocking out Eddie Alvarez at Madison Square Garden last November to win the UFC lightweight title.
