With UFC 169 win, UFC president likes Jose Aldo vs. Anthony Pettis
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo‘s weight cut might be considerably easier next time out if he’s successful this weekend at UFC 169. UFC President Dana White on Monday told reporters he thinks Aldo (23-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC), who meets Ricardo Lamas in Saturday’s pay-per-view headliner, should move up to 155 pounds to challenge Anthony Pettis (17-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) when the lightweight champ returns from an injury layoff. “The timing has to be right,” White said. “If he defends his title this weekend, Pettis comes back, Pettis fights his fight, and then Aldo.”
