Following Jose Aldo’s second straight, stoppage loss to Max Holloway, the legend reports he thought about hanging up the gloves. But ultimately, the former featherweight champ decided that another title run could be in the cards.

Aldo lost the 145 title to Holloway last June at UFC 212, and then in December at UFC 218, he was stopped by the Hawaiian star again. Recently Aldo spoke with Combate, and while doing so, he reported after his second loss to Holloway, he and his team took some time to consider whether he should keep fighting.

Ultimately, the 31 year-old decided the following (quote via MMA Fighting):

“I think I still have much wood to burn, full capacity to go there and fight for the title again,” Aldo said. “I still have four fights left in the contract. I want to do at least three this year. I want to get to the third fighting for the title, be champion again. Then, in the future, I think about retiring or not.”

Aldo is currently booked to fight Jeremy Stephens on July 28th at UFC on FOX 30 in Calgary.
