In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Jose Aldo spoke about his future plans.

“That’s basically what I told the UFC a couple months ago: I want to do this fight, see where I’m at, see how I do, see how I perform and then I can make a decision,” Aldo said, as quoted by

“I’m looking at maybe a big boxing fight maybe somewhere down the line later this year. But we’ll revisit that with the UFC once this fight is done with Jonathan Martinez”.

“That fight with Floyd Mayweather was basically all set and done.

Ali (Abdelaziz) was the one that was negotiating that and I don’t really know what happened and it ended up not panning out for us to fight in Saudi Arabia. But there’s a big event on Netflix later this year (with Jake Paul vs.

Mike Tyson), and hopefully, I can get on that. But we’ll have to see. There’s a lot of options floating”.
