T.J. Dillashaw: “I Wanna Fight Jose Aldo So Bad”

0

During a recent Team Alpha Male Radio interview, UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw spoke about his desire to fight UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo.

“I wanna fight Aldo so bad, dude,” said Dillashaw. “I will beat Aldo. I wanna fight him. I respect him, he’s an awesome fighter.”

The Team Alpha Male fighter also spoke about the upcoming Cub Swanson vs. Frankie Edgar, stating that he hopes Swanson wins and gets the next shot at Aldo’s title.

“I hope Cub Swanson wins,” said Dillashaw. “I like Frankie Edgar as a fighter, but Cub Swanson is a super cool dude and his stand-up gotten so much better. We have already seen Frankie Edgar fight Aldo, it wasn’t even close. He got beat by Aldo. I wanna watch Cub Swanson against Aldo. I think he should be the next one to fight him if he beats Edgar.”

Dillashaw continued, pointing out his belief that while Aldo holds an eight-second knockout victory over Swanson, he isn’t as good as he was then, while Swanson has only gotten better.

“I know, but Swanson has gotten so much better. And Aldo is not that fighter anymore,” said Dillashaw. “Aldo is not that aggressive fighter anymore. He’s different. He’ll let you in the fight a little bit.”
