White Reveals Status of Featherweight Title Unification Fight on 5ive Rounds PodcastPublished on February 10th, 2017 3:01 pm EST
In an interview with Brett Okamoto on the 5ive Rounds podcast, UFC President Dana White revealed that the Featherweight title unification fight between undisputed champion Jose Aldo and interim champion Max Holloway is a "done deal", though White declined to give the date of the fight.
Ever since Conor McGregor elected to move up to the Lightweight division, the Featherweight division has been in a state of chaos.
The UFC stripped McGregor of the Featherweight title and named Jose Aldo the new champion.
The UFC put on a fight between Anthony Pettis and Max Holloway, with the winner being named the interim champion.
Now, the UFC has been trying to put on a title unification fight between Holloway and Aldo, though Aldo has been making noises about moving up to Lightweight. It seems now as though all of the issues have been ironed out and the fight between the two men will be made.
Both Aldo and Holloway are hoping that Conor McGregor returns to the Featherweight division so that they can get that big money fight, though McGregor seems much more comfortable in the Lightweight division. If either of these men want to take on McGregor, then they will likely have to move up to do it.
Aldo vs Holloway seems like the perfect main event of a card in Brazil, or perhaps as the co-main event for Conor McGregor's next fight.
