UFC president Dana White revealed following the post-fight press conference concerning UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
White informed reporters that Aldo is currently refusing to accept a proposed match with Anthony Pettis, stating his belief that “Showtime” has not earned a shot title. Recently Pettis was named the No. 1 contender at lightweight, but with the belt tied up for an April fight between Benson Henderson and Gilbert Melendez, the former WEC champion offered to face Aldo.
White stated that Aldo is eventually going to fight Pettis with a tentative date of August.
