    Get ready for more back and forth. Can't wait to see what Holloway says.

    Why would he turn him down. I'm sure he's been prepping for Aldo for a while now. He's as ready as he can be. And out of the two which one has turned down fights before?

    That's the real question.

    I think UFC aren't seeing eye to eye on money with Max or Tony.

    Everyone wants to sit on their ass until Conor returns to change one of their lives.

    Hilarious watching these guys trying to finesse their way around one another.

    Honestly this I where sensed Aldo was full of shit.

    Max said he couldn't fight in February so we're trying to find a different opponent for March???

    Also the part where he's like I don't turn down fights, then Ariel brings up when he turned down Conor after RDA pulled out, and he's like no no my coach turned it down, not me.

    Lol as if he didn't know he was offered a fight and refused it.

    Holloway is a pretty active fighter. Fought 4 times in 2014 and 4 times in 2015.

    Aldo is being used as a pawn in the Khabib / Ferguson negotiations. Ferguson is asking for more money. And then Jose was offered an interim LW title fight against Khabib, who apparently also refused to fight Jose on his dad's advice.

    Aldo is going by what UFC officials told him. He has no idea.

    Yet another reason for a union. To keep fighters from half assed information.

    But isn't a fact that Max called out Aldo for the Brooklyn card than backed out?

    Maybe he'll say that he realized later that it was too son and asked for like two or three more weeks and Aldo didn't want to anymore.

    If Helwani is stating it's true, it probably is.

    Max may have different reasons than what aldo stated but it looks like he did turn down this fight

    FW champ fighting for interim LW title while LW champ and interim FW goes on.... hold on. The interim FW champ can't fight for actual FW title because FW champ is fighting for interim LW title. Hold on. LW champ is on break so interim LW title against interim FW champ. Hold on.

    Yes.

    Called out aldo for ufc 208 during his postfight interview at 206, where he made a fool out of himself, then reneged shortly thereafter. So, he's full of shit here.
