So all is well that ends well for the former featherweight champ from Brazil who once ruled his division with an iron fist, as Conor McGregor has abdicated the throne and Jose Aldo has been crowned the de facto king. But ultimately, Aldo never got a chance to replay that fight that ended in a mere 13-seconds, and as expected, he still wants another crack at the Irishman.
As per MMAFighting:
“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).”
With Pettis vs. Holloway booked for Dec. 10 in Toronto, Aldo hopes to be back in action in February or March to defend the featherweight title. And after that, Aldo wants to move up to 155 pounds and get his rematch against the only man to ever beat him inside the Octagon.
“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.”
