Dana White Addresses The Issue Of A Possible Anthony Pettis vs. Jose Aldo Super Fight

UFC President, Dana White has squashed any possible problems of putting together a super fight between lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis and featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, stating that if Aldo was to move up in weight and vacate his title then he’d be extended all the advantages of being a champion and rightfully so.

Dana, speaking via FOX Sports Live said:

“I think what Aldo was worried about, is if Aldo moves up to 155 and vacates the title, he wants to be treated like a champion in this fight – which he would be. All the things that he gets at 145 pounds as a champion he would receive, and I think that was part of the issue, and that was all worked out today. If Aldo lost at 155, he could move back down and challenge the new champion for that [145] belt.”
