MMA fighter José Aldo has just recently had a clash with fellow fighter max Holloway; the two have been in a war of words over the cancellation of their proposed duel.
The UFC 208 match, which was set to go down on 11 February, has been cancelled. While unexpected, it was to be a featherweight unification fight between interim titleholder Holloway and champion José Aldo. Now that it is no longer happening, it has formed a squabble between the two fighters.
Aldo had let go of the interim designation when Conor McGregor was relinquished of his 145-pound belt after it was made known that the UFC wanted a headliner for the UFC 206. In relinquishing the title, the UFC 206 event got top billing and it was determined that the winner of the showdown between Anthony Pettis and max Holloway will be named the interim feather weight champion and would be set up to go against Aldo.
Even with the arrangements made by the UFC, McGregor has publicly refused to drop his featherweight title. Aldo was slated to meet Holloway in Brooklyn; this was after Holloway defeated Pettis at their showdown in Toronto.
