Former Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo Isn’t Going Anywhere Inks New UFC Contract

Earlier this year Aldo revealed he has a few fights left in his contract before he calls it quits.

“I had already planned to stop when I was 30 years old and begin something else,” Aldo told ESPN in January. “I’m at a point where I have to make a decision, and nothing is going to change my mind. Martial arts is always going to be a part of my life, but everything has a beginning, a middle, and an end. And I see this coming to an end.”

However, it seems those plans changed as UFC head honcho Dana White confirmed with ESPN that former featherweight champion Jose ‘Scarface’ Aldo signs a new UFC deal. Moreover, Aldo’s coach Andre Pederneiras also confirmed that ‘Scarface’ had signed an eight-fight contract before his showdown with Alexander Volkanovski back in May at UFC 237.

Aldo has been with Las Vegas-based promotion since 2011. Before that, he was a WEC featherweight champion then promoted to UFC. ‘Scarface’ remained undefeated for almost a decade in MMA. He defended his UFC title for whopping seven times then loses it to Conor Mcgregor back in 2015. Then he reclaims the strap after defeating Frankie Edgar at UFC 200 in 2016, however, in his next bout ‘Scarface’ lost the title to Max Holloway.
