Andre Pederneiras, Jose Aldo’s head coach feels that McGregor’s knockout of Aldo was “lucky” and feels that in order to get Aldo a rematch with the Featherweight Champion they will need to “dye Aldo’s hair.”
Pederneiras was interviewed by Combate in Brazil following #UFC194 and here is the translation of that interview;
I can’t see Aldo not fighting for a belt or not in an immediate rematch. It wouldn’t be fair if that doesn’t happen, but happen to others. ‘There’s no immediate rematch for anyone’, cool, we know what the rule is. ‘(There’s rematch) because she’s blond and sells well’? I’ll dye Aldo’s hair. Right?
“I don’t see other scenario than a new fight, so we can really have a fight. In my head, what happened wasn’t a fight, just a punch that landed and ended it quickly.”
The future for Aldo is uncertain at present and a lot will depend on what Conor McGregor choses to do next but it is likely that Aldo is targeting an April 2016 return.
