Jose Aldo Is One Of The Greatest Fighters But It Seems 2019 Will Be His Last Year As A Professional MMA Athlete Jose Aldo is the former UFC and WEC Featherweight champion, and one of the most dominant names in the history of mixed martial arts. At the moment, he is set to meet Renato Moicano at UFC Fortaleza, on February 2, 2019. But it looks like he\u2019ll hang up his gloves soon. On Wednesday afternoon, Jose Aldo spoke about his future MMA plans. Actually, \u201cScarface\u201d has three more fights left under his UFC contract. He wants to end his fighting career in Brazil! (h\/t MMAFighting.com) \u201cI want to end my career here in Brazil. That\u2019s what we have planned,\u201d Aldo said during a UFC media day in Rio de Janeiro. \u201cI want to do these three fights\u2026 I\u2019ll fight in Fortaleza now, and I\u2019m already negotiating my next one for May (UFC 237), if I\u2019m not mistaken in Curitiba, and then finish it in the second semester, which I know will have another event in Brazil.\u201d Jose's coach and manager Andre Pederneiras says UFC was asked to allow Aldo to complete last three bouts of his contract in Brazil. \u201cWe asked them to complete Aldo\u2019s contract fighting in Brazil so he could give the final three fights of his career to the Brazilian fans here,\u201d Pederneiras told the media. \u201cThat\u2019s his will, that\u2019s what he asked Dana (White), and apparently that\u2019s what\u2019s going to happen.\u201d Andre Pederneiras was also asked whether Aldo would fight at UFC 237 in Lightweight division. He joked, claiming it could be \u201cin any weight class\u201d. Aldo\u2019s coach believes there is no chance UFC would book \u201cScarface\u201d versus the current Featherweight champion Max Holloway, especially because of Aldo's UFC 212 and UFC 218 losses to "Blessed". Despite Aldo doesn't want to go for a title shot, he believes he'd give a hard time to everybody who fights him. \u201dThere\u2019s no reason to get here and aim for a title fight,\u201d Aldo said, \u201cBut you can be sure that I\u2019ll be a problem for whoever gets in front of me because I will win these three fights. You can be sure of this.\u201d Jose Aldo also adds he won\u2019t participate in other MMA promotions because he is loyal to UFC. Aldo plans to enjoy life and have a great time with his family when he finishes his career. \u201dI want to finish (my career) well and be healthy as well,\u201d Aldo said. \u201cOne thing I said in my last fight is that I want to (retire) tomorrow and not use my money to buy my health back. Today I give away my health to make my money, so I won\u2019t do that. \u201dI want to enjoy my daughter, my wife, be able to travel, without fighting until I\u2019m 40. I see our great idols doing that and having bad performances\u2026 I always tell \u2018Dede\u2019 (Pederneiras), if one day I\u2019m not in my rhythm in terms of performance, take me out of there because it\u2019s not for me to be in there anymore. I don't want to fight for money. I\u2019ve planned my entire life so I could stop (fighting) without any problem.\u201d What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Jose Aldo might change his mind?
