After his victory against Marlon Vera, Jose Aldo, gives the names of the opponents he would like to meet in his next fights. This weekend, Aldo won by unanimous decision against Marlon Vera, in the co-main event of UFC Vegas 17. After three consecutive losses, the Brazilian finally returns to victory.
With this success, Jose Aldo proves he is indeed in the top 10 of the bantamweight division, and following his loss to Petr Yan, he shows he remains in the race for the 135-pound title.
During his post-fight interview, Jose Aldo called out former champion TJ Dillashaw before adding more names to the list of fighters he’d like to meet. Indeed, in addition to Dillashaw, Aldo would like to face Frankie Edgar, Henry Cejudo and Dominick Cruz. “ There’s TJ Dillashaw, Dominick Cruz, Frankie Edgar, who fought with Cory Sandhagen. If it wasn’t Dillashaw, it could be Dominick too, it could be anyone. We have to be active to draw attention to our category. Or even Henry Cejudo, if he comes back we are ready to do this fight, ”Aldo said (via AG Fight ).
Dillashaw is a former division champion and a tough opponent. A fight against Jose Aldo could therefore make sense. As for Dominick Cruz, he will make his comeback soon against Casey Kenney. If The Dominator wins, the fight against Aldo could take place. Aldo has shown, thanks to his victory over Vera and despite his three consecutive defeats, that he is still a contender for the title. “ I think the category will be very active. Petr Yan is a calm child, I know him and I support him. If I can keep the title, I’m happy. But new challenges will arise, there will be new athletes, ”said Aldo.
