Jose Aldo Tweet Opens Door to UFC Return
By FCF Staff
Aldo proclaimed that he no longer wants to fight, after the UFC announced that Conor McGregor will fight lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez on November 12th. For weeks, UFC President Dana White said that McGregor needed to defend the 145 title next, or vacate it. The Irish fighter, however, remains the featherweight champion.
Recently Aldo posted the tweet below, which according to Google Translate, says the following:
Rethinking retirement in MMA, I talked to my family and seeing the requests of my Fans good things shall come to you. Thanks Russia
Repensando na aposentadoria do MMA, conversei com minha família e vendo os pedidos dos meus Fans coisas boas virao para vocês. Thanks Russia

Aldo was knocked out by McGregor last December, but returned in July, and decisioned Frankie Edgar to become the interim, 145 champ.
