“[Garbrandt] requested for the battle and I agreed correct absent, but the UFC shot it down,” reported Aldo, who was “surprised” by the conclusion. “[Garbrandt] and I had currently agreed, it was all set, and the UFC did not assume it was a fantastic fight, they desired him to fight Rob Font.
“We finished the [Vera] battle previous yr and questioned for Dillashaw and Garbrandt and now I have none. I’m on the dance floor without having a dancing husband or wife [laughs],” Aldo ongoing. “But we’ve been inquiring for Dominick Cruz for a although now and that is a battle most people asks for. We’re anticipating to struggle him. But I really don’t know if it will occur, correct?”
