Less than six months ago Aldo lost his belt at 212 in his native Brazil, after a third round TKO defeat.
The Brazilian has been vocal ahead of this grudge match saying he may leave the fight “dead but with the belt”.
He told Combate: “You can be sure I’m going to to give my best from start to end. They’ll have to pull me out dead from there.”
