The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the top mixed martial arts promoter in the world. Every month they arrange a session with the selected best MMA fighters around the world. This month is no exception, and UFC 212 will take place on 3 June 2, 2017. The fight card is subdivided into three cards. Main Card [holding 5 events], Preliminary card (will be featured by Fox Sports 1) [holding 4 events], and Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass) [holding 3 events].
On the main event, Jose Aldo will be facing Max Holloway for the UFC Featherweight Championship title; although, the event was supposed to be the bout between former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, and the Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen middleweight victor Kelvin Gastelum. However, Gastelum was declared disqualified for being flagged for a potential doping violation. He was tested positive for Carboxy THC, being above 180 ng/mL allowance by the WADA. Then UFC decided to replace him with former Strikeforce and UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold. The next day, Silva decided not to fight Rockhold and demanded a bout against some other fighters. However, the UFC did think that differently and fixed another two fighters for the main event for the Featherweight title.
Iuri Alcantara was supposed to fight Felipe Arantes for the bantamweight bout. However, Arantes was pulled out because of some undisclosed reasons. He was replaced with Brian Kelleher instead.
Another lightweight bout between Leonardo Santos, The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2 welterweight winner and Oliver Aubin-Mercier was scheduled to take place. However, after Aubin-Mercier got injured, it was scrapped.
