Donald Cerrone squares off with Dennis Siver at UFC 137 on Saturday night in Las Vegas. The fight is supposed to help whittle away at a long list of UFC lightweight contenders, but Cerrone on Wednesday declared to MMAWeekly.com that his next fight will be at 145 pounds.
He’s got a specific target in mind for his featherweight debut, but Cerrone also says that he might just be testing the waters for a run at current UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
“Jose Aldo, he’s a stud, and I would be honored to be in there to throw down with him. I haven’t seen anyone get in there and really fight Jose. He’s got great leg kicks and great strikes, I think it’d be a fun fight.”
Cerrone spoke to MMAWeekly.com in an exclusive one-on-one interview on Wednesday, talking about the fight with Siver, his place in the lightweight class, and his desire to fight his next bout at 145 pounds.
