Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will fight Petr Yan for the vacant bantamweight title.

According to MMAFighting, the promotion is planning to set the match-up on July 11 at UFC 251. Aldo was scheduled to fight Henry Cejudo last month, but he had to pull out of the fight following travel restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus outbreak.

Jose Aldo, Henry Cejudo, Petr Yan

Cejudo ended up fighting Dominick Cruz and knocked him out in the second round. Following his victory, Cejudo announced his retirement from the sport, and last week he was stripped of his title by the UFC.

I’ll break this right here and right now but my people are probably going to kill me for this one,” White said in a recent appearance on SportsCenter. “But Cejudo has retired so we are talking about Petr Yan vs. Jose Aldo for the vacant title. We don’t have a date or a place set for that but that’s the fight we are looking at right now.”

Jose Aldo moved down from featherweight last year and made his bantamweight debut at UFC 245. He fought Marlon Moraes and lost via a razor-thin split decision. Prior to moving down to 135lbs, Aldo lost in a one-sided fight against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 237.

On the other hand, Petr Yan is coming off of an incredible knockout win over Urijah Faber at UFC 245. He has fought six times in the UFC and has been undefeated so far inside the organization.

Andre Pederneiras, coach of Jose Aldo tested positive for COVID-19

Jose Aldo had to previously pull out of his fight against Cejudo last month because of Coronavirus related travel restrictions. The coronavirus situation in Brazil is getting worst as the country now has the second-highest number of cases globally.

Currently, there have been 414k positive cases of Coronavirus in Brazil and over 25,000 people have lost their lives. Jose Aldo’s longtime coach Andre Pederneiras has also tested positive for Coronavirus.

In an Instagram post, Andre revealed that he has been isolating himself in his house and doing well.

Bom dia a todos! Fiz o teste da Covid-19 e deu positivo. Estou bem, cumprindo meu isolamento em casa, e minha maior preocupação nesse momento é continuar a nossa campanha de arrecadação, porque a fome dos menos favorecidos não pode deixar de ser saciada por conta de uma MOMENTÂNEA baixa médica no meio dessa guerra que estamos travando, de alimentar os menos favorecidos. Independentemente de eu estar impossibilitado de ir à rua, nosso exército de ATLETAS E COLABORADORES vai continuar a distribuição das cestas básicas nos horários marcados – e assim que eu estiver liberado, estarei de volta à frente de tudo, comprando e distribuindo os alimentos PARA JUNTOS VENCERMOS ESSA GUERRA. Toda semana tenho ido ao banco tirar o extrato para prestar contas da campanha. Infelizmente, essa semana terei que postar o extrato do celular (o que não gosto de fazer porque não mostra o nome do Instituto André Pederneiras e o valor juntos), mas assim que for liberado para sair, voltarei a postar o extrato da forma como vinha fazendo. O lema da minha vida sempre foi LUTANDO PARA VENCER, e não será diferente agora!! Meu muito obrigado a todos que estão doando e ajudando essas pessoas tão necessitadas de alguma forma.

Good morning everyone!

I took the Covid-19 test and it was positive. I am well, fulfilling my isolation at home, and my biggest concern at this moment is to continue our fundraising campaign, because the hunger of the less fortunate cannot fail to be quenched due to a MOMENTARY low medical in the middle of this war that we are fighting, to feed the less fortunate.

Regardless of whether I am unable to go to the street, our army of ATHLETES AND COLLABORATORS will continue to distribute the basic food baskets at the scheduled times – and as soon as I am free, I will be back in front of everything, buying and distributing the food TOGETHER WE WIN THIS WAR.

Every week I go to the bank to get the statement to account for the campaign. Unfortunately, this week I will have to post the cell phone statement (which I don’t like to do because it doesn’t show the name of André Pederneiras Institute and the value together), but as soon as I’m released to leave, I’ll post the statement the way it came making.

The motto of my life has always been FIGHTING TO WIN, and it will be no different now!! My thanks to everyone who is donating and helping these people in need in some way.” Andre wrote on Instagram.
