    So, in the end, do you think you will fight Max Holloway in Brooklyn on Feb. 11?

    No, the Brooklyn fight is not happening. I now expect and believe I will be fighting in early March. Either March 3 or March 4, I can't remember. I believe they will soon announce an interim lightweight title fight with me. They've been trying to find me an opponent, and -- surprise, surprise -- at least one has already turned down the fight against me. I'm waiting to see who they will find.

    Full Q&A with Ariel Helwani. Says he was offered a UFC Interim LW Title Shot in March but his opponent turned it down because "His Dad said it wasn't the right fight for him". The only ranked LW fighter I know who's father is a decision maker when it comes to training/career is Khabib.

    What do you guys think?

    Here's his comments on 208:

    And his comments on fighting for LW Interim title:

    He has to be winding Ariel up.


    Aldo seriously saying he's not going to defend the belt for potentially two fights?

    Yeah I am PO'd. I bought tickets for 208, and the card Brooklyn is getting, is the worst I have seen in a long-time before any injuries.

    I thought Aldo was the champ? Do you mean unify the belts?

    I honestly doubt it. It would be awesome to see McGregor v Aldo at LW though.

    Aldo is a sore loser. Can't let it go. I don't get why he wants to get knocked out again so badly. Just ask your training partners to do it no need to do it in front of millions of people.

    Is Aldo implying that Khabib turned down a fight with him?

    Love it.
