UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo discussed his future career path this week with MMAJunkie.com and hinted at possibly fighting in three weight division in the future including the lightweight and bantamweight classes:
“It all depends on this fight,” Aldo said through an interpreter. “My trainer, 'Dede,' thinks I'm not quite ready. When he thinks I'm ready to go up, I fully intend to go up. Once I beat Frankie Edgar, I'm sure that I can prove that I can fight one notch above.
“Certainly I believe that I'm ready, but 'Dede' believes that I'm still too young, and so he's keeping me back. But I think I'm fully capable of fighting one category above.”
“I have made that weight once, and it has been a dream of mine to win three titles,” Aldo said. “Nobody has beaten that record yet. Andre knows that's a dream of mine, but he controls my career, so it all depends. Someday I hope to achieve that. I'd like to make history.
“For a fight for the title, I could make 135 pounds. I'm not saying it would be easy. It would be difficult, but I think I could do it.”
