Jose Aldo has been clear about his desire to return to the octagon in 2017. Thanks to a familiar foe, it seems he’ll be able to get his wish.

Brazil’s Combate.com says the ground has been prepared for a rematch between former 145-pound champion Aldo and contender Ricardo Lamas – who unsuccessfully challenged for the then-champ’s belt at UFC 169 in 2014. According to the report, both men have said yes to a meeting in December, but have yet to set a specific date.

Aldo’s original plan was to fight at UFC 217, which takes place in New York City on Nov. 4. But, also according to the report, the promotion opted for the following month after Lamas asked for more time. This would entail one of two likelihoods: UFC 218, which takes place in Detroit on Dec. 2, or UFC 219, set for Dec. 30 in Las Vegas.

True, but it can also be the start of a killer end of the year card...they could add Jacare vs Weizmann so Chris doesn't have to get whooped in NYC again.


Too soon?
