Jose Aldo: Even though Anthony Pettis 'backed out' of UFC super fight, I still intend to face him
(mmamania.com)
While reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo still has to get through Chad Mendes at UFC 179 this weekend in Brazil (more on that here), he still hasn't forgotten about the time lightweight champion Anthony Pettis challenged him to a 145-pound "super fight" -- only to later back out.

Unless, of course, a certain "Notorious" Irishman crashes the featherweight party.

The most controversial moment in the first fight between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes happens fast – we’re talking two, three seconds, tops – but it’s impossible to miss. It’s also impossible to determine just how much it impacts the fight itself, or how much that question even matters.
