He has the interim belt. That means the next title fight at 145 is going to be Aldo/Max unless they both retire and or move weightclasses for no good reason. Max fucked up and he's probably not that good at math. He didn't realize 208 was only 7 weeks after he just fought. They can fight in March if Aldo doesn't duck. Get over it Waldo fans. Max is going to curb stomp your boy. Oh and that's all besides the point of when you consider the question "why exactly would the #1 contender want to duck the champ???!"
