The legend of Jose Aldo may only be on the verge of reaching greater heights. After an ultra-impressive win over Jeremy Stephens, it’s onto what’s next.

 

The former longtime featherweight king and consensus greatest 145er to ever compete, Aldo has essentially done all there is to do in the weight class that he’s found all of his success in. So is it time to test new waters…?

 

It seems that that may be the case as when speaking with Brazilian media recently (via MMAFighting), Aldo claimed he has no more interest in fighting at featherweight unless it’s for the title. Which means facing Brian Ortega or a third bout with Max Holloway.

 

“Right after the fight [with Stephens], Dana [White] talked about the big possibility of fighting on December 8, in Canada again.

 

I’ve had already asked for that fight, I said I wanted to be on that event. I really enjoyed fighting in Canada, where I made my UFC debut, and I hope to fight there again. It’s up to [Andre] ‘Dede’ [Pederneiras] now, he’s looking into that and talking to the Dana and [uFC matchmaker] Sean [shelby] to get my next fight done.

 

[Anthony] Pettis was a request from fans, I got many messages saying he would be a great fight for me next. They also asked me to fight in Sao Paulo, but there was not enough time to get it done at lightweight. They even put me to fight [Donald] Cerrone, but it wasn’t done. I’m waiting for ‘Dede’ now, talking to him, and when he finds a good name and they agree to it, we’ll fight.”

 

Aldo continued on about the possibility of fighting Cerrone at the upcoming UFC Sao Paulo event.

“The UFC [offered it]. When Glover [Teixeira] pulled out and they had no main event, they asked if there was a possibility for me to fight. We accepted, depending on the opponent, and they offered Cerrone right after, and he had already agreed, and ‘Dede’ didn’t think it would be good because there wasn’t enough time. We needed some time to rest before we started another camp again, so it didn’t happen. But now we’re waiting for ‘Dede’ to talk to them again so we know who we’re fighting.

 

It was actually funny. Sean called ‘Dede’ talking about the fight, and ‘Dede’ asked who would be the opponent, and they called back moments after offering Cerrone. It would be 155 for sure, right? No way it’s 170, it’s too heavy. But it was tough because we didn’t have enough time to prepare, especially against Cerrone, a very tough guy, someone who fights hard in his losses, so there was no possibility. Maybe the possibility of fighting in Brazil got me overexcited, I said it was possible, but thinking clearly there was no way we could fight, especially someone like Cerrone. I have to be very well trained to fight him.”

Do you like the idea of Aldo vs. Cowboy?

Who do you think wins?

Yeah I think that's what he's saying. I could be wrong but pretty sure I even heard Cerrone say he wants to go back to 155 after the Perry fight.

Aldo would body Cerrone. We all love Cowboy but he’s not a top top guy.

 

Some great fights for him at lightweight. Pettis, Poirier, Gaethje or even Conor if he loses to Khabib. He knows it what’s next being 0-2 to Max.

Aldo would be a pretty small lightweight. Could be some good match ups against some other small lightweights but all the bigger top competition would just walk through his shots.

somehow with one win over Jeremy Stephens Aldo thinks he is a superman.

Aldo is a question mark right now m8. Gotta give him some credit and respect.

 

His loses were against Conor and Holloway. One turned out to be a multi division champ and the other one is a huge FW who might not be able to even cut 145 anymore (WCC but Im not saying Holloway is any joke either).

 

He came to fight and bang against a real killer like Jeremy. Ate some shot and managed to get a TKO. Please give the guy a break.

 

I still believe, after the Jeremy fight. Holloway is that guy who got his number (every fighter has that guy who got his number) and the Conor fight is up for debate imo.

I really would like to see Aldo fighting Ortega tho.

 

PS. Moicano beats Aldo and Ortega at this moment

Still think Ortega edges it. He stood in front of Edgar and knocked him out. And he tapped Renato.

I am not really questioning Aldo. I am questioning Aldo thinking he has a chance against a big 155 like Cowboy.

Max gets stripped of his title December 8th when he's hospitalized for water loading.  Little Frank steps and serves Ortega the hands which puts Jose right back in the mix.

He'll never get the chance.  Plank has earned that beautiful death and Mike Perry is gonna give it to him.  Jorge and Darren softened up that chin and now Granny Cerrone has to witness the death of her entitled grandson.

Like both fighters but Cowboy sends him back to 145 with ease.

 

Every fighter wants that EASY Cerrone payday, mainly because randoms like you think he is good lmao

I've always been a fan of Cowboy, but after listening to his long **** rendition of almost dying in a cave...I lost all respect for him. If he would have taken that cowboy hat off, he could have seen which way to go to the surface.
