Ricardo Lamas Discusses His Upcoming Title Fight With Jose Aldo
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.29.2014

- Ricardo Lamas recently spoke about his UFC 169 tile bout with Jose Aldo. Here are the highlights…

On Challenging Jose Aldo For The Featherweight Title: "I've stuck with the same people. If it's not broken, don't fix it. I know he trains with some monsters in Brazil, but I train with some monsters in Chicago and Miami. Just because you don't know their names yet doesn't mean anything. My main training partner in Miami, Luis Palomino, is by far, I think, the best fighter in the world that isn't signed with the UFC. I'd put my money on him against anyone in the lightweight or featherweight division. He's the real deal, and it's a shame he's not in a show like the UFC. He just signed with World Series of Fighting, so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of him."

On His Preparation For The Fight: "Looking back, I'm glad I got this much time to prepare for the fight," Lamas said. "I think I'm in better shape now than I've ever been in, and technically, I've improved as a fighter – and it'll show on Saturday. I put in all the work," he said. "We've trained for three months. We've watched video, we've watched footage, and we've trained for it. There isn't much I can do from this point to the fight that's going to make me any better. I just try to clear my head, stay calm and enjoy the week. There's going to be a lot of publicity, a lot of talking. So I'll just try to enjoy the moment while people still want to talk to me."

What If He Defeats Aldo?: "I think he'd be deserving of (a rematch) more than anyone," Lamas said. "He's been the champ for a long time and he's been a dominating champ. He would definitely deserve it if that was something he wanted. I'd say in Mexico, maybe, would be a real cool spot."
