Dana White: Jose Aldo being ‘ridiculous’ about UFC retirement

Conor McGregor will not be defending his featherweight title in 2016, and will instead be challenging Eddie Alvarez for the 155-pound strap at the upcoming UFC 205 in New York City, which means interim titleholder Jose Aldo won’t be getting his  rematch.

As a result, the Brazilian has decided to he will retire from UFC.

From UFC Tonight:

“Listen, I can’t make anybody fight anybody. I can do the best I can to put together fights and make them happen. Jose Aldo and I will get together probably next week and we’ll talk about this. I think he’s being a little ridiculous about this.. I’ll get him a fight. I’ll get him a fight all day long. If you look at that division, it’s stacked. (Max) Holloway is ready, he wants to fight. Anthony Pettis is in that division now. There’s a lot of talented guys there that he can fight. I can’t make Conor McGregor fight anybody. Obviously everybody wants the fight. I’m waiting for Joanna Jedrzejczyk to call out Conor McGregor next. Everybody wants to fight Conor.”
