"I would have no problem with him staying at his weight now and defending his title there or moving to 155 pounds, whatever he feels like he wants to do"Men Aldos tränare, Andre Pederneiras har en annan syn på det hela, han menar att José endast tar steget upp om han får en omedelbar titel chans. Detta säger han till MMAsidan Sherdog.
"If it depends on me, it wont happen. Unless he leaves the team to train somewhere else and someone agrees with that, because I will not, ” the coach joked in an interview with Sherdog.com.
