While speaking to MMA Fighting, José Aldo indicated that his career could be coming to an end when he was asked if he plans to sign a new contract with the UFC.
”No, I don’t think so. “It doesn’t cross my mind to sign a new contract after.”
Aldo insists that knowing his UFC career is coming to an end will actually serve as a benefit for him in the Octagon.
“I think it’s easier because you know it’s coming near the end, so you have to give your all because you don’t want to go out on a loss, you want to go out on top. It’s a lot easier seeing the end of the tunnel and working harder because you know it’s coming to the end.
”I dream of being champion and dream going out as champion. That’s my biggest motivation. … I take much pride in winning, I don’t accept losses, so I’m always going after that. The day I lose this fire, I think it’s time for us to stop.”
