UFC 212 took place this past Saturday and what a night of fights it was!
The pay per view event was headlined by a UFC Featherweight Title unification bout between reigning champion Jose Aldo and interim champion Max Holloway.
Also on the card was a women’s strawweight bout between top contenders Claudia Gadelha and Karolina Kowalkiewicz – Both fighters had previously met the 115lb Queen Joanna Jedrezejczyk and were unsuccessful at dethroning her. They were both vying for another shot at the 115lb gold.
