UFC Fighter Jose Aldo is once again the UFC’s Featherweight Champion after Conor McGregor relinquished his title three days ago, leading to Aldo calling out McGregor.
According to a translation by Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting, Aldo wasn’t surprised that McGregor gave up his title, but he also knew McGregor wouldn’t defend his featherweight title last December:
“I knew that would happen,” said Aldo, who lost to McGregor in 13 seconds at UFC 194 in December 2015. “To me, I never stopped being champion. I lost that fight because of an accident. I knew that I would win a rematch, that I would be champion again. It’s not my fault that he’s such a pu–y he was never the champion. I don’t see myself losing to anyone in this division or any other (division).”
Anthony Pettis versus Max Holloway will headline UFC 206 in Toronto, meaning that Aldo hopes to return to fighting in February or March. Then, he wants to move up to 155 pounds so he can get his rematch with McGregor:
“First, I want to defend my title, and then go after a fight with him (at lightweight),” Aldo said. “Just like Dana (White) said, we can choose who we want to fight, so I want to fight him. That’s what will happen.”
