As Jose Aldo climbs up the 135-pound ladder with a win over Marlon Vera at UFC Vegas 17, he wants the division’s former champion next.

After a disappointing three-fight losing streak, Jose Aldo got himself back in the win column with a victory over a very game opponent in Marlon Vera at UFC Vegas 17. The two-time featherweight champion led the striking exchanges in the first two rounds, then held back control through the entire final stanza.

Many saw glimpses of vintage Scarface” with his leg kicks, along with the body shots he’s added into his game over the last few years. Now back with a W after a 22-month drought, the 34-year-old is ready to take on more of the division’s elite.
The next name on his list: T.J. Dillashaw.

“As far as the next fight, it would be Dillashaw,” Aldo told Daniel Cormier during the post-fight interview through his interpreter. “We’ve been talking about Dillashaw a lot.

“Hey Dana, make it happen.”

It didn’t take long for the former 135-pound champion to respond.

I heard everyone is calling me out, cause they all know that’s my belt @ufc

Dillashaw has been out of commission for the last 23 months because of a failed drug test in relation to his flyweight title fight against Henry Cejudo in early 2019. He will be eligible to return in January 2021.

I reckon the dillasnake takes that one.


However jose threw some beast mode leg kicks the other night. The rumor was he stopped throwing them years ago because he was injured or something. To see him utilize them again was great.

He needs to get back to those leg kicks because they be effective
