Brazilian featherweight Renato Moicano has only endured one loss in his stint with the UFC: A Fight of the Night submission to current #1 contender Brian Ortega at UFC 214. Once Ortega’s fight with division champion Max Holloway was booked for UFC 231, Moicano took to Twitter to call for the next potential opponent: former featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
With the Max x Ortega fight booked for December, now @moicanoufc x @josealdojunior is the fight that needs to happen! Number #2 against the #4 to see who deserves a chance to fight for the title.
I am ready.

Aldo’s last fight was a TKO victory over Jeremy Stephens last month in Canada after suffering two back-to-back losses to Max Holloway. Meanwhile Moicano scored a victory over Cub Swanson earlier this month at UFC 227. This potential bout could serve up the next contender for the strap after Ortega and Holloway clash this December.
