Jose Aldo Plans On Making Pettis Regret Drop To Featherweight


“I will prove that he should have stayed at lightweight and not drop down. After the fight, he will regret having fallen down to featherweight. I’m adapted, I always fought here. We have to respect, but here is our world and we will show who we are.”

In a recent interview with, Brazilian Media outlet Tatame.com, the UFC’s dominant featherweight champion said he plans on making Anthony Pettis regret shifting divisions and challenging for his title.

The two men are set to square off at UFC 163 in August.

    war aldo

  2. Big Daddy says:

    I don’t see how Pettis can win unless he can land a lucky blow. Aldo has handled top strikers and wrestlers.

  6. Broly says:

    I want Aldo to win so I can see him fight benson. Two great champions.

  7. GRT 3000 says:

    …this will be a good one (can’t wait) but I got my money on Pettis.

  8. Dddddddd says:

    I’m surprised to hear Aldo say this. Boo! Now I want Pettis to kick his ass. I’ve followed Aldo always and have a great amount of respect but this is cheesy. I’m starting to wonder if what Aldo’s wondering.

    • Thom1 says:

      if you were a fan you wouldnt turn your back to him over nothing, stop whining he has a title fight coming up he’s gonna say what he’s gotta say.

  9. KIDD433 says:

    Both of these men are warriors,I have utmost respect for both of them.Been a fan of both of them for a long time.I’ve never bet against Aldo,But if I had to put my $ on it,I’d go with Pettis.He has more diverse striking,and is very unpredictable.When he kicks high,its effortlessly,and hard to see coming.And I believe Aldo’s biggest weapons being round kicks will be checked by Pettis.Aldo’s best chance IMO is going to have to be in his boxing.If he comes in fearlessly which he will and not recklessly,Then he could pull it off.He has being a mean Son Of A Bitch in his favor.Just has to focus…WAR BOTH MFKRS!

    • Thom1 says:

      Pettis doesnt have the speed to check those kicks. Frankie is way faster and more mobile than Pettis and he could abrely check any of them. Pettis does have good technique but ultimately Aldo’s speed, power and explosiveness will catch Pettis off guard. Pettis has never fought anyone who had anything to offer him standing up in terms of damage, Aldo has plenty of that. He’s also way better on the ground.
