There's really no fights left for him at Featherweight, assuming he gets past Lamas, apart from rematches with Chad Mendes and Cub Swanson.

Looking at the UFC's official rankings:
  1. Chad Mendes – Aldo finished him by KO at UFC 142, Mendes needs one more win to warrant a rematch after winning a decision over Lentz
  2. Ricardo Lamas – Aldo's upcoming fight at UFC 169
  3. Frankie Edgar – lost to Aldo by decision at UFC 156
  4. Cub Swanson – finished by Aldo in seven seconds at WEC 41, however has earned a title shot with a streak of five wins
  5. Chan Sung Jung – lost to Aldo by TKO at UFC 163
  6. Dustin Poirier – lost to Swanson at UFC on Fuel TV: Barao vs. McDonald, needs two more top ten wins
  7. Dennis Siver – also lost to Cub at UFC 162, currently out of the title picture
  8. Nik Lentz – lost a boring decision to Mendes at UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Benavidez II
  9. Clay Guida – finished by Mendes at UFC 164
  10. Darren Elkins – unknown by casuals, also finished by Mendes at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Melendez
  11. Erik Koch – lost back-to-back fights to Lamas and Poirier
  12. Conor McGregor – needs multiple top-ten wins before a title shot is warranted
  13. Dennis Bermudez – also needs multiple top-ten wins, won controversial decision over Max Holloway at UFC 160
  14. Tatsuya Kawajiri – good fighter coming off a finish of Sean Soriano at UFC Fight Night: Saffiedine vs. Lim, however also needs multiple top-ten wins
  15. Diego Brandao – finished by Poirier at UFC 168

I say he finishes Lamas and then takes either the Mendes or Swanson rematch before moving up to 155.
