Update: Jose Aldo vs. Anthony Pettis Official, Aldo Will Receive a Lightweight Title Shot With Win

(Fan-made poster via

Since we first wrote about Jose Aldo‘s refusal to fight Anthony Pettis, the UFC featherweight champion has changed his mind about the matchup — twice, actually. First, Aldo said that he would fight Pettis, but only in a non-title fight:

Who deserves a chance in the first place, is Ricardo Lamas, because he has beaten Erik Koch, who was the next contender. He earned the chance after the victory,” said Aldo in an interview with TATAME. “Cub Swanson is another too. They are athletes in the division, struggling for a long time for a shot at the belt, which never arrives according to opponents the UFC is scheduling. If the UFC wants a superfight, I do not see any problem. I fight whoever, but the belt has to be against Lamas or Swanson.”

They created a ranking that is not serving for anything, because they’re pulling people from other divisions. This is only happening on my weight, I see it nowhere else,” Aldo continued, pointing to the UFC’s recent decision to create an official system of sorting their fighters out. “It is an injustice to others.”

Bro, don’t even get us started on the useless goddamned rankings; at least the featherweight champion is concerned about the legitimacy of his division. But there was another twist to this story yesterday — Aldo finally agreed to put his 145-pound title on the line against Pettis at the original August 3rd date, once he was offered an interesting incentive:

Shortly after White confirmed that Aldo had agreed to put his UFC featherweight title on the line against Pettis, Brazilian website spoke with Aldo, who said that his demand was simple. If Pettis, like Frankie Edgar, was granted a title shot in his 145-pound debut, then Aldo wanted a 155-pound title shot in return if he is victorious over that division’s No. 1 contender. White agreed, and the deal was done.

No details on whether or not Aldo would have to vacate the 145-pound belt or even if he would want the move to 155 pounds to be a permanent one have been determined…

With a win over Pettis, Aldo would then face the winner of Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez on April 20th. And if Pettis wins the featherweight belt…well, I don’t think anybody’s thought that far ahead yet. Let’s just say that there would be a contendership vacuum in the lightweight division, and suddenly, a fight like Gray Maynard vs. TJ Grant might actually have “title implications.”

    And if Pettis wins, then we can see Lamas destroy him with those nasty elbows.

    On a side note, I don't think the wolverine hand blades would work well with the inflatable car bed. The busty girls would work well with the inflatable car bed, though...

    "then Aldo wanted a 155-pound title shot in return if he is victorious over that division’s No. 1 contender. White agreed, and the deal was done." Does that mean he would have a fight at 155 before fighting the champion?

    A 2 division champion in the UFC; that would be something to see.

    @Morning: No. The Aldo v. Pettis fight would be Aldo's 155 #1 Contender match as well. He goes right to 155 title shot with a win over the 155 #1 COntender in Pettis.

    I'd actually rather see lamas vs aldo and Pettis vs Alvarez. But of course Eddie has a bigger fight to win first...a legal battle over bullshit

    Whoa! Settle down there Aldo. Do you really want to get in the cage with Bendo and his toothpick? Don't worry, you won't have to because Anthony Pettis is gonna wreck your shit.

    This shakes out pretty interesting. Aldo is much bigger than anyone at 145. Is upper big at 155. Pettis is unorthodoxed and fast at 155. Not so fast for 145. Unless he gains speed with the drop like Maia. Aldo likes the middle of the cage which kills his show time junk. Neither likes the Mat. So Aldo wins is he creative enough to beat bendo who owns straight line fighters and has cardio forever (aldo does not) If pettis wins can he steal the fight with flash like he did last time ( minus show time kick it be tough to sell me him winning on the cards).

    *without flash

    I don't really have a favorite in this fight. I am glad Pettis is finally getting his chance and I can't wait to watch it.

    Seriously, nobody else is bothered by his "only in my weight class" crap? Does he just completely ignore Sonnen and Belfort getting shots? Along with many others who have been in similar situations? Hell Randy came out of retirement from lhw for an immediate hw title shot. I'm losing a lot of respect for aldo the more he complains.
  13. ArmFarmer Says:

    Tue, 02/26/13 - 10:45

    I would love if he wins and then Ben is all "Whatever I'm not fighting him, he needs to earn it. He hasn't even won a single fight at lw. Get in line buddy"

    The UFC is making a superfight bracket at the top of the divisions, and everyone else is fucked. SUPERFIGHT BELTS - BRING IT BACK - 16 YEARS LATER - CATCHWEIGHT BOUTS Flyweight-Lightweight Belt: 140 OR 145 OR 150 lb bout (3 lb leniency) Welterweight-Lightheavyweight Belt: 180 OR 185 OR 190 OR 195 lb bout (3 lb leniency) These belts can be contested against one another in a 160 OR 165 OR 170 lb bout (4 lb leniency) Winners of these bouts are crowned an ULTIMATEULTIMATE FIGHT CHAMPION and receive a custom championship belt with the insignia of that PPV event, a belt which can not be further contested for. If two fighters with ULTIMATEULTIMATE CHAMPIONSHIP belts were to ever compete one another, they must fight in the Amphitheatre of Pompeii wearing gi's in an openweight bout with torches burning and shit so it looks all epic. I'm too stoned to figure out what to do with Heavyweights..... -__-
