    This came out of the mouth of the guy who said Aldo wasn't ready and didn't have enough time. This statement was made more than a month ago.

    "That's what he wants the most. He wants it so much that he's already training conditioning, jiu-jitsu and boxing. Nothing too excessive, of course, but he wants to stay in shape. He's not lazy. He will always be expecting that chance to get the fight on short notice, otherwise he might not get another chance. He's got that notion in his mind so he's staying active. "
    - Kenny Florian

    Can you guys really blame Dana for calling Andre if he said that Aldo would be prepared to step in on short notice?

    I didn't see it. I made this thread mainly because several people are asking for a source that Aldo was already training in preparation for a short notice rematch with McGregor and it would've taken me forever to reply the same thing to them all.

    All of the other quotes that I saw being posted were just about Aldo's "anytime, anywhere" comment.

    Florian just took Andre's quote as his own.

    Problem is that Aldo just completed his suspension for being KO. He hasn't had a chance to train for more than the last few weeks. No contact means you can jog, no grappling, no sparring. Nothing.

    He was in no position to fight, regardless of what he said. He would probably not be cleared to fight in the first place. He made the right call not taking the fight, even though I think he wins the rematch.

    Do you understand what short notice means?? Does not matter when this was said, it matters close to the fight, you know, when it is SHORT NOTICE!!!

    He contradicted himself big time here.

    He obviously didn't want the fight. As his manager says, he may only ever get one chance to redeem himself against McGregor so he's training for that short notice fight, that chance for him has come, and he didn't want any part of it.

    I'm a fan, but fuck.

    You only need #DadaBabynuts to make grandiose statements on Facebook. You need a real set of cojones to actually put your money where your mouth is, step up and take unnecessary risks when required. Aldo has been weighed and measured, and found lacking.
