Santos vs. Aubin-Mercier heads to Rio

Ultimate Fighter alums Leonardo Santos and Olivier Aubin-Mercier will both attempt to extend their winning streaks on Jun. 3 when they collide in a UFC 212 lightweight bout at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

In the main event, Jose Aldo and Max Holloway collide in a battle for the undisputed UFC featherweight title.

Owner of back-to-back finishes of Thibault Gouti and Drew Dober, Montreal's Aubin-Mercier is a submission ace who has won five Octagon bouts since making it to the finals of TUF Nations in 2014. A year earlier, Santos won TUF Brazil 2 by submitting William Macario, and after a draw with Norman Parke, he has won four in a row, including finishes of Kevin Lee and Tony Martin.
