Aldo has a "Superfight" in mind

More "superfight" talk :roll:

Hopefully Max beats him so we won't have to worry about it anyways

Jose Aldo is the latest UFC champion to develop his own secret superfight plan

Superfight. Once upon a time that word was reserved for historic bouts that every fan clamored to see. Nowadays it seems like every fighter in the UFC is chasing a superfight, and their definition of the term is whatever fight makes them the most money right now.

Michael Bisping made his superfight dreams a reality. Conor McGregor seems on the edge of doing the same. Tyron Woodley? Desperately angling for any superfight he can get. And now you can add Jose Aldo to the list of champions with a superfight plan.

"Man, a superfight is always good for me," Aldo said during a media scrum in Brazil on Thursday. "I have a superfight in mind. That's what matters today, money in the pocket. I'm the champion and will continue being the champion, so I want to do do big fights. I have a project after this fight. I'll sit and talk to the UFC. If they approve it, it will be great."

As for what it is?

"It's a secret," Aldo respondeed. But he did say Conor McGregor's inter-sports match with Floyd Mayweather was setting a precident. "Not only for me, but for everyone else!"

Earlier this year during his near-retirement from the UFC, Aldo revealed a desire to box ... are these comments a sign that he still harbors those aspirations? I doubt the UFC would be okay with that. Once Conor McGregor pulls off this potential billion dollar fight with Floyd Mayweather, we fully expect the UFC to try and slam the door shut on their fighters boxing. But Aldo implied he's already laid out his superfight plans with Dana White and White agreed to them.

"I wanna see if his word once again won't be fulfilled," Aldo said. "I have an agreement with him. We'll see. First I'll focus on Holloway, and after that I'll talk to him and we'll see what happens."

I am beyond excited to watch Aldo vs Holloway, that is the "super fight" in my opinion.

I will give Aldo a bit of a pass so far on this one. He defended his belt twice a year against the top contender (even if it was a rematch) without question for like half a decade or longer. If anyone is going to be calling for superfights a resume like that helps


Spoiler:
"superfights" aren't really all that super anymore with how frequent they are and how some fighters base their entire career on superfights after a point now a days.

I reckon he's thinking of fighting the LW champion if he beats Max...He is desperate to avenge the Conor loss and he will do all he can to make that fight happen.

He had his chance to move up to fight Pettis but of course daddy Dana wasn't going to give him the same stipulations he gave Conor. He did let BJ do it though, just food for thought. :burger:

I have a feeling it will be Cody Garbrandt or TJ Dillashaw. I doubt it's going to be with Conor because they already bitched him out of an immediate rematch with him.

What the fuck is a super fight? Championship bout across divisions? PPV draw v. PPV draw?

I also don't know what's a superfight. I would agree with Meow that Max vs. Aldo is a superfight.

I'm really hoping Max wins this one.

Aldo is the greatest FW of all time, but I am tired of all the "superfight" talk regardless of who it is saying it.

That would be a solid scrap. I might even call it...super

I would imagine a super fight could be many things such as champ vs champ, star fighters fighting such as Brock, Conor or Rousey, older legends like GSP returning to action. These makeup the key ingredients for "super fights" IMO.

I would also like to add that fights such as Aldo vs Holloway are exciting but super fights are for garnering the attention of the casual fan more so than the hardcore.

So wait... that bum said he has a super fight in mind and then says it's a secret??

Why bring up it up if you aren't going to say who it is?

Its OK Aldo, you don't have to tell us. Holloway is gonna put a 5 round beat down on you, so you'll be able to keep your secret as long as you want.
