As expected, featherweight champion Jose Aldo will take on interim champ Max Holloway at UFC 212, June 3rd.

Recently it was reported that the promotion was planning to book the bout for that date, and now the UFC has officially announced the match-up.

Aldo will be fighting for the first time since last July, when he defeated Frankie Edgar to become interim champ. After Conor McGregore secured the lightweight title in November, however, the UFC made Aldo the undisputed 145 champion. Holloway went on to stop Anthony Pettis in December to become the interim champ.

UFC 212 will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
