Anthony Pettis Still Wants Jose Aldo In Champ Vs. Champ Bout

Anthony Pettis Still Wants Jose Aldo In Champ Vs. Champ Bout

UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis remains hopeful that a super-fight with Jose Aldo can be worked out.

Currently, Pettis is targeting a return to action next summer after undergoing knee surgery, while Aldo – the UFC featherweight champion – is scheduled to face Ricardo Lamas in early 2014.

“Aldo has his hands full with Ricardo,” said Pettis, during a recent interview on UFC Tonight. “Hopefully, Aldo comes out of that and we have a super-fight.

“I want to fight one more time in the year and then maybe set up a super-fight for the end of the year.”

Pettis was set to meet “Scarface” this past August before a training injury while promoting the match in Brazil surfaced. He was able to return late that month and defeat Benson Henderson for the title.
