Jose Aldo lost his bout by split decision against Marlon Moraes in his bantamweight debut. Even though he didn’t win, Dana White might give Aldo a title shot. UFC president Dana White revealed during the UFC 245 post-fight news conference that Henry Cejudo texted him asking for the matchup.
“Henry Cejudo texted me tonight and said, ‘That’s bullshit. He didn’t lose that fight. He won that fight, and I want to treat him like he did,’” White told reporters “He wants to fight Jose Aldo.”
