Jose Aldo Announces Fight with Max Holloway at UFC 208


Jose Aldo Announces Fight with Max Holloway at UFC 208

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has confirmed he will face Max Holloway at UFC 208 on Feb. 11.

Holloway beat Anthony Pettis to clinch the interim belt at UFC 206 and made it clear afterward he was ready to fight the Brazilian. Speaking to the press in Brazil on Monday (h/t Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting) Aldo suggested a date has already been set for the aforementioned Brooklyn showpiece.

"He’s saying 'where's Aldo?', you have to talk to the UFC," said the champion. "About the fight in February, I already knew that, I only didn't know who I would fight. It was between him and Pettis, whoever won the fight. It’s not something new. This fight will happen on Feb. 11."
