Aldo: I'm not afraid of Pettis; I'll fight the heavyweight champ


"I can fight Cain Velasquez if they want," Aldo said in an interview to Brazilian TV show Planeta Nocaute on Sunday. "It’s not up to me, I’m not the matchmaker. I want to fight, I’m here to fight. I train everyday to destroy whoever they put in front of me. I’m not scared of anyone. They have two arms and two legs, and I will do my best and win."

Aldo believes White’s comments is part of a game to ignore the fact that he was promised a shot at the lightweight title with a win over Pettis at UFC 163. It would have been Aldo’s second fight in a row against lightweights that had not fought in the 145-pound division before. However, the offer was pulled from the table when Pettis got injured weeks later.

"(Andre) is absolutely right," Aldo said. "They forced us to do something and Andre wants something in return. I agree with everything Andre says, and I can fight anyone. Sometimes Dana says things that you better not pay attention. (Dana) knows he promised us things and he knows he has to give us, so that’s why he says those things. We’ll see what happens."

He also said Dana was the reason the fight is not signed from promises that were made. Something along those lines.

I believe that Cain would squish him into a glove box sized toy that he can stick on his car as a hood ornament
