Conor McGregor

Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo is laying down the law.

Aldo, who lost the title last December to Conor McGregor, is making it known that he will only return for a rematch with McGregor.

Currently, “Notorious” is scheduled to face Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight belt in March. He has made it known he will defend both titles if successful.

Fala galera, estava quieto até agora porque da maneira que a luta aconteceu eu já estava me preparando nos treinos pois tinha certeza que teria a revanche imediata. Porém Acho que me enganei. Então queria deixar bem claro para o @UFC que não aceito nenhuma luta que não seja pelo cinturão, por tudo que eu fiz nesses 8 anos , por tudo que eu aceitei e pela forma que a luta acabou. A única exceção seria uma luta a qualquer momento, em qualquer lugar e já que ele está com medo de me devolver o cinturão, não precisa ser pelo cinturão…@thenotoriousmma Espero que que vocês também cumpram a palavra de vocês @danawhiteufc @lorenzofertitta pois ainda acredito na empresa que trabalho. #rematch Hi everyone, i was quiet for a while because i was waiting for my rematch based on how the fight Went down, in fact I was already training for it, but apparently I was wrong. So I wanted to make something clear to UFC: for everything I have done, everything I have accepted and mostly how the fight ended, I will not accept any other fight other than a title shot . My only exception would be fighting thenotorious , at any time, anywhere , and once that he is afraid and knows that I'm gonna win …. Doesn't have to be title fight against him. Keep my belt, but I wanna whoop ur ass anywhere. @danawhite @lorenzofertitta @ufc keep ur word. I still believe in the company that I work for. #rematch

ufc fight night 84

Mark Hunt sees Frank Mir as a stepping stone to competing for the UFC heavyweight title this year.

Hunt and Mir will square off in Australia in the main event of UFC Fight Night 84 in March, and while he didn’t ask for Mir, Hunt still plans on doing what he does best.

“I think Frank Mir is gonna be trying to take me down and I’m gonna be knocking him out,” he said, during a recent interview with Submission Radio. “So I think after he realizes that he can’t take me down, then he’ll end up being knocked out, like the rest of them.”

Hunt (11-10-1) will turn 42 years old just a few days after the bout and was hoping to celebrate with a win over Junior dos Santos or Alistair Overeem. Both would have been rematches for the “Super Samoan,” as dos Santos defeated him via knockout in 2013 and Overeem scored a 2008 submission win.

Still, the veteran realizes that a victory over a former champion like Mir can still set the course in front of him.

“I asked for Overeem or JDS for this fight but I wasn’t allowed. And you know, I have to fight Frank Mir. He’s just as accomplished as me and was a world UFC champion,” he said. “So if beat Mir, then I can probably get a Top-5 guy and then probably I can begin my bidding for a world title shot hopefully. So hopefully by the end of the year maybe, if I won both fights.”
