Jose Aldo isn’t done fighting.
The former two-time UFC featherweight champion is still technically under contract with the organization even though he has retired from mixed martial arts.
Aldo recently stated in an interview with Globo Esporte that he is considering his alternatives but that MMA is not one of them.
“I’m trying to see the best path I’ll take right now,” Aldo said.
“I won’t fight MMA, that’s for sure. I thank everybody calling me from other promotions, but I haven’t left the UFC, I remain under contract with them. I’ll see where I’ll fit.”
“Boxing is a possibility.
“It was always a dream I had in my life, I never hid that from anyone. It was always a dream. But let’s see. Everybody says I’m still young, that I have a few years [left]. First, for now, with the birth of my son, I want to enjoy my family, and then I’ll think of the professional side.”
Aldo had one bout remaining on his UFC contract when he declared retirement from mixed martial arts in September.
The day Jose Aldo III’s father announced his retirement from mixed martial arts, Aldo and his wife, Vivianne Perreira, welcomed Jose Aldo III.
Aldo’s final UFC match ended in a decision loss to Merab Dvalishvili in August. The veteran WEC/UFC fighter has won three straight matches, his greatest stretch of victories since being undefeated from 2006 to 2014.
