Max Holloway will make his first defense of the UFC Featherweight Championship against José Aldo, a former champion himself. Aldo was happy to step in and take another crack at Holloway, who scored a TKO victory over Aldo at UFC 212 in June.

Prior to "Blessed", McGregor became the first man to ever defeat Aldo under the UFC's banner back in December of 2015 in the main event of UFC 194. Aldo is 26-3 as a professional, with losses to Holloway and Conor McGregor in two of his last three fights, with a decision win over Edgar in between them.

With the win, Waianae's Holloway ups his record to 19-3.

Frankie Edgar was supposed to fight Holloway, but broke an orbital bone a few weeks ago while training and Aldo was asked to fight two weeks earlier than he was scheduled.

Holloway's active winning streak has only been surpassed by Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, Demetrious Johnson and Jon Jones.
