ALDO MIGHT FIGHT FOR A UFC LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE

Speculations abound if they could be a light weight title fight on the line for the fighter.


This will be an interim bout ahead of the proposed feather championship face off between the fighter and Max Holloway.

The fight is set to go down in February 11 and is set for Brooklyn New York. But before then, the fighter might be setup for a light weight duel. Jose Aldo spoke recently about his schedule for the upcoming months. According to him, his next fight is likely to be a showdown for an interim lightweight championship.

“I now expect and believe I will be fighting in early march. Either March 3 or march 4, I can’t remember. I believe they will soon announce an interim lightweight title fight with me,” he said.

Aldo has said that since his UFC 208 fight would no longer be held, they have been trying to set him up with a new opponent.

“They’ve been trying to find me an opponent, and surprise, surprise at least one has already turned down the fight against me. I’m waiting to see who they’ll find.”

But this will be an unexpected event seeing as Conor Mcgregor has just recently won the UFC 205 title in November and is currently taking a leave of absence.

However, Aldo is faced with a shortage of opponents as Stipe Miocic and Joanna Jedrzejczyk are taking a break, Dominick Cruz and Amanda Nunes are scheduled to fight on December 30, Demetrious Johnson is in recovery from an injury and Holloway’s injury has exempted him from the February fight.

Nevertheless, the UFC promotion desperately needs a marquee headliner and setting up an interim light weight fight is the way to go. If the match is fixed and Aldo wins, he would be the second man in the history of the UFC to hold too divisional belts at the same time unlike Mcgregor who won the titles concurrently.
