- Jose Aldo will fight again, according to his coach Andre Pederneiras. A report by Combate states that Aldo is targeting an early 2017 unification match with Conor McGregor for the UFC featherweight title. The Brazilian currently holds the interim belt and has recently stated his desires to do something other than MMA after officials paired McGregor with Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.
"Aldo wants to do the other things, but in the conversations we had (with the UFC), it became clear that they're not going to let him do that," Pederneiras said. "There's nothing we can do. We have to fight.
"If he goes back to fight, he will only fight to unify the title, independent of who it's against. Aldo will accept no other fight unless it's to unify the title."
Aldo, who lost to McGregor last year for the title, won the interim belt this past July vs. Frankie Edgar.
