“The Menace” has lost four of his last five bouts in the 155-pound division and hopes to rejuvenate his career by dropping down a weight class.
“I was thinking about making a move down to 145 because I’ve fought everybody in the top ten at 155. I think it’s time for me to see some new faces in the cage,” said Johnson during the UFC Rotterdam Q&A.
“Jose Aldo, he has been wanting to get out of his contract. He’s a great champion, so I would love to go down to 145 and fight him anytime, anywhere,” he added. “I’m open do December. I’ll go down to Brazil and fight him. I just love good, exciting fights, and he’s a guy that I would love to get in there with.”
Aldo last fought in June, losing the featherweight title to Max Holloway at UFC 212.
