Jose Aldo isn’t going anywhere. The former 145-pound champion will continue his fighting career for the foreseeable future.

However, if he does decide to change weight classes, a jump up to 155 pounds isn’t the only option on the table. The Brazilian has said that he believes he can make the cut down to 135 pounds to potentially challenge Henry Cejudo for his bantamweight championship.

“I sat down with everybody, did a study, and I think there’s a real possibility I can make 61kg [135 pounds],” Aldo said. “This is the new division I want to move to, and I’m asking for the title shot right away. That’s what matters for me now. Cejudo said he’s open to (fighting) anyone, so I’m open to that. I want the opportunity to fight against him and beat him.”

Speaking to Combate, UFC President Dana White offered his reaction to the comments. White didn’t shut the door on the possibility. He obviously wants to speak with Aldo and his team more first, but the UFC boss said he likes Aldo at any weight class.

“Aldo texted me and I told him I didn’t know, that we would see. We still don’t know what to do with those divisions. As soon as we do, we’ll tell him. I like Jose Aldo anywhere, in any weight class.”

Aldo recently had a two-fight win streak snapped by Alexander Volkanovski. He was bested by the Australian on the judges’ scorecards via unanimous decision at UFC 237. Prior to that, Aldo was riding a two-fight TKO win streak over names such as Jeremy Stephens and Renato Moicano.

Last night (Sat. August 17, 2019) one of the biggest UFC events of the year took place. UFC 241 on pay-per-view (PPV) from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California featured several high-profile contests.

In attendance were numerous well-known UFC stars, including top-ranked welterweight Colby Covington. “Chaos” was seated cageside enjoying the fights. However, things had to be settled down, as Covington’s presence riled a few other fighters up.

UFC President Dana White explained the situation during the post-fight press conference, noting a few fighters wanted to fight Covington.

“No, what happened was, everybody in that section was fighting with Colby,” White said. “So security kept coming over to me 50 times saying ‘We need to get him out of there.’ And I said, ‘No everybody needs to start acting like f*cking professionals because I don’t have another set in this entire building.

“Every seat in this place was sold out. So that whole section needs to stop starting fights with Colby. Right when I got there too, [Jorge] Masvidal was working his way down the line. [Max] Holloway had moved out of his seat so Masvidal could come into his seat. You know, that f*cking game that you play in kindergarten was going on over there when I went over there.

“So I asked those guys, ‘Listen to me, we got a big night going on here, we got a big fight. I don’t need a fight breaking out over here with you knuckleheads.’ Stop it.”

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise given how controversial Covington is. From his staunch support of current United States President Donald Trump to his brash trash talk towards nearly every fighter in the UFC, it would’ve been surprising had none of the fighters attempted to start something with Covington.

Coming off a dominant win over Robbie Lawler, “Chaos” is expected to challenge Kamaru Usman for the 170-pound title next.

What do you think about Covington riling up the fighters cageside at UFC 241?
