Jose Aldo is Targeting Bout With Jeremy Stephens
By FCF Staff
After incurring, consecutive losses to Max Holloway, former featherweight champ Jose Aldo is targeting a bout with Jeremy Stephens.
Aldo faced Holloway twice in 2017, and in both bouts, he was stopped by the now, reigning champ. More recently the Brazilian star appeared on Revista Combate, and the legendary fighter said this about Stephens (quote via MMA Fighting):
“I asked to fight him, he asked to fight me, so it will be a great fight,” Aldo said. “I’m waiting for them to set it up.”
Stephens is coming off a controversial, stoppage win over Josh Emmett last month, and has won three in a row.
