Before Renan Barao had to be pulled from the title fight at UFC 177, a situation which left Dana pissed with Nova Uniao, Aldo said that he isn't concerned with the words of his boss.
The recent criticism from UFC president Dana White targeting the Nova Uniao camp isn't a big deal for Jose Aldo, according to his interview with Ag. Fight published this Wednesday. The UFC Featherweight champion said last week, before Renan Barao failed to make weight and was pulled from the main event of UFC 177, that he isn't concerned with what his boss has to say:
"I sincerely don't care about any of what Dana White says. Everything that he says has no importance to me. I don't care, I care about what Dede Pederneiras tells me, about what we'll train. This is my focus, that is why Dana's statements don't bother me."
If Aldo speaks the truth, he has a lot of Dana statements from last weekend to not care about. The "Scarface" will defend his UFC 145-pound belt the seventh time at UFC 179, on October 25, in a rematch against Chad Mendes.
P.S.: Let's hope this time that Dana White doesn't say that what Aldo said got "mixed up in translation".
