    Default UFC 'talking about' Jose Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas for UFC 169 in New Jersey

    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/1...r-bowl-weekend

    It's far from a lock, but Ricardo Lamas could finally get his shot at the UFC featherweight title in February.

    UFC President Dana White today said the organization is "talking about" booking champion Jose Aldo (23-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) vs. Lamas (13-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) for its Super Bowl weekend card on Feb. 1.

    "We're talking about that at Super Bowl weekend, but it's not done yet," he said. "We're talking about it, but we talk about a lot of things."

    Unlike past years, the UFC's annual Super Bowl card won't take place in Las Vegas. Instead, the pay-per-view event is slated for Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

    Aldo vs. Lamas would give the card a title shot. Initially, it was slated to feature light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (19-1 MMA, 13-1 UFC) vs. Glover Teixeira (22-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC), but with the champ not expecting to be fully ready to go by then, officials ultimately nixed it and now expect it to take place in March or April.

    Aldo is ranked No. 1 and Lamas No. 3 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA featherweight rankings.

    Cool, I'm down for it. It's been too long since Lamas has fought so I'm happy just to see him for a fight.
