“The King of Rio” returns, and he rightfully makes top billing in the new poster for UFC 301.

The UFC on Thursday released the official artwork for the May 4 pay-per-view event, and the artwork features a colorized headshot with former featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo.

Check out the poster below.

UFC 301 is headlined by a flyweight title fight between champ Alexandre Pantoja and Steve Erceg, whose title shot raised eyebrows despite his three-fight winning streak. Pantoja defends the title for the second time after outpointing Brandon Royval at UFC 296.

Aldo serves as the co-headliner in a fight against Jonathan Martinez. Aldo unexpectedly returned to the UFC fold after a brief boxing career. Martinez has won his past six fights including a leg-kick TKO of Adrian Yanez in his previous appearance.

The UFC 301 main card airs on ESPN+ pay-per-view and takes place at Farmasi Arena in Rio de Janeiro. It’s the promotion’s 12th visit to Brazil and the first trip to Rio in 16 months.
