The featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Ricardo Lamas is rumored to headline UFC 169

UFC officials are planning to put the featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Ricardo Lamas in the annual UFC Super Bowl event. The card was supposed to be headlined by Jon Jones’ 7th title defense against Glover Teixeira, but it was scrapped after Jones asked for more time to recover from the injuries that he suffered in his recent bout against Alexander Gustafsson.

White has not indicated if Aldo and Lamas will headline the card. However, UFC’s biggest stars are all scheduled to fight before the end of this year so there is a high possibility that the proposed fight will be the main event of the Super Bowl weekend card.

Aldo is perhaps the biggest MMA star in Brazil outside of Anderson Silva and Junior dos Santos. He is ranked in the top 3 of several pound-for-pound lists but it seems that he has yet to achieve global stardom. It is very evident in his latest title defense against Chan Sung Jung when he only netted a total of 170,000 PPV buys. Jones, on the other hand bagged a whopping 550,000 buys in his bout against Chael Sonnen last April.

The Aldo-Lamas bout is a very good match although it may not be as attractive compared to any bout that involves Jones. The two featherweights has always been known as action fighters and a fight between them is a sure treat to all MMA fans.

Jose Aldo will move to 155 only if Dana White allows him to

Talks of a superfight between featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo and Anthony Pettis have already started even before Showtime won the lightweight championship over Benson Henderson. It was announced early this year that Pettis would drop to 145 lbs to challenge Aldo but the 26 year old Milwaukee native suffered an injury and was pulled out of the fight. Aldo defended his belt against Chan Sung Jung instead. He broke his right foot early in the fight but managed to pull a TKO victory due to an injury in The Korean Zombie’s shoulders. Pettis on the other hand, stayed at 155 and went on to win the belt last August 31. He is scheduled to make his first title defense against Josh Thomson in December.
