The Ultimate Fight Championship fight will happen in Las Vegas on December 15th. And this going to be Aldo’s 135 pounds debut. This should be an interesting and hard fight, to have more insights please read our preview about next UFC Jose Aldo vs Marlon Moraes great match, here below.

Jose Aldo

Aldo recently announced his move down to 135 pounds and posted a picture to social media showing that he became slimmer. He will try to recover from his previous loss against Alexander Volkanovski, a loss that ended his two wins in a row streak. And also thrown him a division down for the first time in his career. So Aldo has huge stakes and pressure on this match. However, since a loss against McGregor, Aldo doesn‘t look like himself and he needs to find his way to winning otherwise, there might be sad consequences. However, he is holding everything in his own hands, so this should give him some extra motivation and self-trust.

Marlon Moraes

Interesting fact, but it was Moraes who wanted this fight against his countrymen and as we can see UFC is more than happy to help. Moraes also will try to recover after his unsuccessful try to win the vacant 135 pounds strap against Henry Cajudo. The loss snapped his 4 fights winning streak and it was only his second loss in Octagon. However, the winner would receive a huge jump in the rankings. But Moraes must be careful because no matter how poor Aldo is, he is still an amazing fighter and underestimating him would be a big step towards loss.
