UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo (22-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) is now one win away from a shot at the promotion's lightweight title.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Monday confirmed with UFC President Dana White that if Aldo is victorious in his August fight with Anthony Pettis (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC), he will move up to 155 pounds for a shot at the title in that division.

I'm done with this bullshit! They're saying I'm ducking him, now they will see who will be the one running when the time comes. If you like violence, buy the PPV for this fight, because that's what you'll going to see. Heads will roll.

-Jose Aldo



If Pettis dies, this one's on Dana.

In my honest opinion I think that Lamas is getting fucked around big time. He should be fighting Aldo not Pettis and now on top of that if Aldo wins he gets a shot at Bendo.

What about the real FW contenders like Lamas and the Korean Zombie.

After this fight both guys should go to and stay at 155 and let KZ fight Lamas for the FW belt.

I know I am biased because Pettis is one of my favorite fighters. But Aldo has a tougher opponent then he is thinking. Pettis is a great striker with some power. This fight will be closer than everyone thinks. I may be the minority, but Im taking Pettis.

Yet another log jam. It would be extra special if no matter how this one ends, the loser gets an immediate rematch

The UFC should just throw their rankings out the window.

He earns a title shot at a different weight class with a win...that's unusual.

wahhhhhh! We get to see Pettis Aldo then maybe see Aldo vs Bendo/Melendez winner that sounds god awful to me! I would also hate to See Gsp move up and fight Anderson, as well as DC drop and fight Jones nothing about any of that sound awesome.

Lol I see where you are coming from postman. The purist in me wants to see KZ and Lamas get their shots, because they earned them the right way, in my opinion. However the fan in me says KZ and Lamas get absolutely wrecked by Aldo to the point those matches are almost not worth making.... I don't even know how to feel about the situation right now.

I see where you guys are coming from as well. But I also remember the days I wanted to see Chuck and Wandy fight as well as Fedor vs Randy. These fights make me wanna

My understanding is that if Aldo beats Pettis and moves up to LW, he will not be coming back to FW and the FW title will be up for grabs.

I also don't have a problem with Aldo getting an immediate title shot if he beats Pettis. Aldo will have beaten the former champ and the no 1 LW contender and last guy to beat the current champ. That's a resume for a title shot.
