Jose Aldo wants Anthony Pettis' lightweight belt for a chance of to hold titles in two weight classes

Anthony Pettis was supposed to drop to 145 to challenge featherweight king Jose Aldo but an injury yanked him out of the fight. He later won a title of his own when he submitted Benson Henderson in UFC 164. Now, with Pettis as the lightweight champ, Jose Aldo feels that it is his turn to come after Pettis’ belt.

Two more WEC standouts are making their way inside the Octagon, as Erik Koch and Cub Swanson meets at UFC 132.

UFC confirmed last Tuesday that UFC 132 will headline a bantamweight title fight between current champion, Dominick Cruz, and Urijah Faber. In addition to these, the promotion included two more former WEC standouts to the July 2 bout.

Erik Koch took home the Knockout of the Night award by taking down Raphael Assuncao. He is carrying a three-fight winning streak since his unanimous decision loss to Chad Mendes. Meanwhile, Cub Swanson will step inside the Octagon for the first time at UFC 132. His last appearance earned him a split decision win over Mackens Semerzier at WEC 52.

The preliminary fight card will kick off with a catch-weight brawl between Nick Catone and Constantinos Philippou. Though it has been more than a year since Nick Catone’s last fight, it was a victory over Jesse Forbes. Constantinos Philippou, on the other hand, will be making a UFC debut as a late replacement for Dan Miller. And it looks like the lack of preparation will hurt the latter, as Nick Catone will go for the win.
