UFC: Dana White says Aldo vs. Pettis is already booked

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

UFC president, Dana White announces that Jose Aldo's next opponent will be LW champ, Anthony Pettis.

Tonight saw UFC Featherweight champion, Jose Aldo add another name to his long list of victories when he defeated Ricardo Lamas in a five round grinder. It wasn't his most impressive performance, but he got the job done in an efficient, mostly dominant fashion. I won't go so far as to say it was disappointing, but it certainly wasn't anything to write home about.

A few moments ago, at the post event presser, Dana White said that Aldo's next fight has already been booked. His next opponent will be a step up in weight classes, as he'll be facing off against Lightweight champ, Anthony Pettis. One of the UFC's official Twitter accounts also released the future bout announcement:

There is no word yet on when the match might take place.
