Jose Aldo has been in the world of MMA since 2004 and in the UFC since 2011. The 31 year old brazilian has a record of 26 wins and 3 losses over his long career.
Aldo has a UFC title fight as the challenger for the first time in the UFC 218 pay-per-view headliner Saturday at Little Caesars Arena, when he challenges Holloway (18-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) in a rematch of UFC 212.
By winning Aldo would join Randy Couture as the only fighters in UFC with 3 separate title reigns in a single weight class.
“I’m looking forward to making history and putting my name in the history of the UFC,” Aldo said through a translator at today’s UFC 218 open workouts. “I want to retire being the champ.”
Aldo said it’s likely a third fight takes place afterward.
“Probably yes (to a trilogy), but it’s up to (UFC President) Dana (White),” Aldo said. “He’s going to decide. I’m pretty confident about the victory. I can see the belt again.”
