After his big win over Rafael dos Anjos, Tony Ferguson is eyeing titles in multiple weight classes
(mmafighting.com)
On Saturday night, Tony Ferguson put on one of the best performances of his career taking a unanimous decision victory over former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. It was the ninth straight victory for Ferguson - a record in the UFC for consecutive divisional wins as well as for consecutive wins without a title shot - and possibly (probably? one can never tell where Conor McGregor is involved) sets him up for the next lightweight title shot. But Ferguson isn't only gunning for the lightweight strap, he's got multiple divisions in mind. Speaking with MMAJunkie in a post-fight scrum, Ferguson outlined his plan to vie for three UFC titles.

Manager: UFC won’t let us go, Jose Aldo has no choice but to fight
(mmamania.com)
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim featherweight champion Jose Aldo was hoping to retire from mixed martial arts (MMA) to pursue other interests, even going so far as to threaten his promoters with legal action. That didn’t exactly pan out. Manager Andre Pederneiras talks to Combate (via Bloody Elbow):

"Right now we have this Pettis vs. Holloway fight, and there's Conor's decision, too. We can only know what's going to happen after that. Aldo wants to retire in order to do other things, but in these talks we had with the UFC, it became quite clear that they will not let him go to pursue that. There's no choice but to fight. It'll depend on the outcomes of these two fights. Pettis vs. Holloway and Conor vs. Alvarez. I don't know what Conor will decide, but I believe February or March would be a good date to face him. They are fighting now, so there would be a good three, four month break."

"Not that long, I’m wrapping it up," the 29-year old Rousey said. "This is definitely one of my last fights. "So everyone better watch. The show isn’t going to be around forever."
