Former featherweight champion of the world Jose Aldo has said that he plans on moving down to bantamweight in order to secure a title fight against UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo.

The 32-year old former champion who ruled the division for nearly half a decade informed about his new desires on Combate.com, which is a Brazilian site.

At the moment, we’ve been thinking about what is the best chance to fight for a belt again,” Aldo revealed. “I sat down with everybody, I studied, and I think there’s a real possibility of me making 135. I’ll try to move to this new weight class, and I’m asking for a title shot right off the bat. It’ what matters to me now. Cejudo said he was open to fight anyone, so I’m open to this, I want a chance to fight and beat him. Then I’ll think about moving up again, to 145 or maybe 155. Since he’s open, I’ll accept the challenge. And I hope that, in the near future, we can make this fight happen.”

He also said that he has run out of opponents in the featherweight division and that bantamweight division would be a new start for him.

I, particularly, think that 145 is too stale for me. A third fight against Max is hard to happen. The division is renewing itself, so of course they won’t put anybody to fight me, because I can hinder those plans. It’s much easier for me to go down. I never worked with a nutritionist before, to lose weight in the long term. I always did it one week before the fight, but it was quick. Now, we’ve talked and saw a real possibility of hitting the mark. So there’s nothing more fair than to fight the 135 champion.” (H/T – BloodyElbow.com)

Jose Aldo is coming off of a unanimous decision loss against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 237 which took place in Rio de Janeiro on May 11. Before that, he was on a two-fight winning streak having bested Renato Carneiro and Jeremy Stephens.
