Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch break down all the ins, outs, ups, and downs of this weekend's UFC event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We'll have picks and odds for every bout on the card, from Jose Aldo vs. Max Holloway down to Marco Beltrán vs. Deiveson Figueiredo.

UFC 212 is getting some hate from hardcore fans and media and while it’s not a deep card it’s also a bit hard for me to overlook getting Jose Aldo vs. Max Holloway as a lack of quality. The co-main event, a compelling top strawweight contender’s bout between Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Claudia Gadelha should be a nail biter as well. Throw in a few bangers to open the whole thing up and I expect UFC 212 to be fun to watch even if it’s not notable all the way down.
