UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo has been very insistent about fighting the former featherweight champion Jose Aldo in Rio De Janeiro.
Aldo moved down to 135lbs to fight former title challenger Marlon Moraes. He lost the fight via a close decision but was still adamant about staying at that weight class. Even though he lost his bantamweight debut, UFC president Dana White said that he wants to make Henry Cejudo vs Jose Aldo next.
Henry Cejudo has also called out Aldo numerous times and most recently after Aldo’s fight at UFC 245. Now the former featherweight champion has replied and called Cejduo as the ‘snow white’s security guard’.

“I am the King of Rio and you are Snow White’s Security Guard! Sign the Contract and let’s get it right. @HenryCejudo @danawhite,” Aldo tweeted.
In his interview with MMA Fighting, Aldo responded to this Cejudo’s callout and revealed the timeline of his return to the Octagon.
“I will beat everyone,” he said. “I will become the bantamweight champion.”
“If it’s in March or May, it doesn’t matter to me,” Aldo said. “I just want him to sign the contract so we can fight. I’ll start my diet and do whatever it takes.”
UFC’s next fight card in Brazil is scheduled to take place in March in Brasilia. UFC is also scheduled to return to Brazil in May.
Henry Cejudo said in a tweet last week that he is willing to fight Jose Aldo in Rio and insisted that it was his city.

“It feels good to have good hair. So upon my return, I really did want to fight Dominick Cruz. But, I thought about and he is too brittle. If I was to tell Dominick Cruz to bend the knee he’d pop his damn neck out. But, actually, I’m not here to talk about Dominick. I’m here to talk about Jose Waldo and I want to give him a clap for his last performance because a lot of people thought he won. I want to congratulate him because he is apart of the Henry Cejudo sweepstakes but it is under my terms. I want to fight him in my city. Rio de Janeiro. Daddy’s coming home. Dana White let’s sign that contract. Ahh, and one last thing, your movie sucks,” Cejudo said.
Who do you guys think wins between Henry Cejudo and Jose Aldo?
