Jose Aldo, Keeping his enemies close


Jose Aldo is already anticipating his next match regardless of a foot injury suffered in his previous bout with The Korean Zombie. In a recent interview, he stated his view on his contenders, and who he thinks deserves a shot at his belt. “I’m not the one who decides that, but in my mind I believe Ricardo Lamas is the next in line” Ricardo Lamas did in fact have his chance, but Anthony Pettis managed to cut the line.

The champion gives his humble opinion while showing some enthusiasm on his return. “If I were Lamas, I wouldn’t fight anyone and just wait for my opportunity” The waiting game might be best option for Ricardo Lamas, but the contender also hasn’t fought since january. On a four fight winning streak with three finishes over Matt Grice, Erik Koch and Cub Swanson, Lamas is looking good. When asked about Chad Mendes, Aldo doesn’t believe he deserves a title shot as much as other contenders. He states “Chad Mendes is still starting, haven’t fought anyone ranked yet, only fought guys that are not that good.” Aldo doesn’t mind the competition though. He says that whoever the UFC has next in line for the belt is fine by him. The Champion won’t return until early 2014, but it’s anticipated that he will be training at one hundred percent by October.
With all of the 145 pound fighters focusing on Aldo since he took the division by storm in 2009, he keeps calm with the fact he will fight any one of them.”It’s not up to me, I’m not the matchmaker. I want to fight, I’m here to fight. I train everyday to destroy whoever they put in front of me. I’m not scared of anyone. They have two arms and two legs, and I will do my best and win.” Aldo stated before the recent foot injury and three or more red dots were put on his head.
