It seems just about every fighter wants to be on the historic New York UFC card in November, and Jose Aldo is no exception.

Shortly after his former foe (and the current featherweight champion) Conor McGregor won his rematch with Nate Diaz, Aldo jumped on Twitter to voice his desire for their promised rematch.

Aldo lost to McGregor via a stunning one punch KO that downed the previously undefeated champion in just 14 seconds. McGregor became champion and then promptly asked for a title fight at 155. In all the madness that followed (fake retirement, injuries and a distraction by the name of Diaz) Aldo returned, reclaimed the title (technically just the interim title) and UFC President Dana White has assured fans that either McGregor will face Aldo next, or vacate the title.

McGregor isn't so sure he wants to fight Aldo again though, at least according to his UFC 202 post fight interview.

“It’s hard for me to get excited about that, especially after his last performance," McGregor said. "It was a decision. He didn’t go out and get it. He didn’t go out and get it like I wanted him to get it. I don’t know. We will see. I am the 145-pound champion. The interim 145-pound champion is a man that I KO'd in 13 seconds. I’ve got to figure out what’s next. I don’t know what’s next. There’s many things in the pipeline, so sit tight.”
