Jose Aldo was in Brazil helping to promote the most recent UFC pay-per-view over the weekend. Now, it appears that Aldo will make his return to the Octagon against Erik Koch in October at UFC 153.
The event is set to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the same place Aldo last defended his crown successfully at against Chad Mendes.
The Brazilian site Zero Hora confirmed the news through Cashew Freitas.
Aldo-Koch was expected to go down in July from Canada, but Aldo pulled out due to an injury. “Scarface” is 21-1 in his career and has held the WEC/UFC featherweight crown since 2009.
Koch sports a career mark of 13-1, including a win over Jonathan Brookins last year.
