Getting ready for this Saturday’s UFC 120 event in England, UFC president Dana White addressed the possibility of the WEC divisions – from bantam to lightweight – being incorporated into the UFC.

On one of the WEC champions, specifically, White was more incisive, saying he’d like to see José Aldo in the UFC, perhaps in the lightweight division now dominated by Frankie Edgar.

On the subject, Aldo told GRACIEMAG.com:

“Of course I’d accept. I have what it takes to fight in the UFC, but it’s not up to me. I’d have to talk to those who work with me: Dedé (Pederneiras), my coach; and Joinha (Jorge Guimarães), my manager. Whatever they decide is always the best. But I believe I have just what it takes to fight in the division above mine. Wouldn’t be a problem at all.”
