UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo is looking to bring one of the top lightweights in the world in to help him prepare for his next title defense against Chad Mendes.
Aldo spoke with Sherdog.com and informed them of his plan to hopefully bring former number one contender to the UFC Lightweight title Gray Maynard in to help him prepare for Mendes' wrestling:
“We have a big interest in bringing Maynard to train with me. He has such strong wrestling and we want people that (have) the same game Chad Mendes does. Mendes is a competitive and hard guy to fight. Me and Maynard have been in touch since UFC 136, and he also said it's his will to train with us at Nova Uniao, but nothing is confirmed thus far, especially because of the Thanksgiving holiday. I'm waiting for the answer.”
