Former featherweight champion Jose Aldo Jr. took to social media this wednesday to send a clear message to the UFC.
On his Instagram account, the Brazilian wrote that he will only accept a fight for the belt.
The only other fight he would sign up for would be a rematch against Conor McGregor, even if it’s not for the title.
Ze Aldo’s post reads (sic): “Hi everyone, i was quiet for a while because i was waiting for my rematch based on how the fight Went down, in fact I was already training for it, but apparently I was wrong. So I wanted to make something clear to UFC: for everything I have done, everything I have accepted and mostly how the fight ended, I will not accept any other fight other than a title shot . My only exception would be fighting thenotorious , at any time, anywhere , and once that he is scary and knows that I’m gonna win …. Doesn’t have to be title fight against him. Keep my belt, but I wanna whoop ur ass anywhere. @danawhite @lorenzofertitta @ufc keep ur word. I still believe in the company that I work for.”
Zé Aldo lost his belt after 8 years on December 12, when he suffered his first ever loss in the UFC after McGregor hit him with a single punch to win by TKO.
The UFC has since not commented on Aldo’s post.
