Jose Aldo Says Dana White Kept Him Away From Fighters Union


The ongoing saga between current UFC Interim Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo ad the UFC is continuing, but it has gotten worse according to a new revelation from the champion.

Aldo, during a media scrum in his native Brazil, spoke of UFC President Dana White advising him to avoid the fighters union at all costs.

"Not only now that I’m the one being affected, but I always talked about it and defended better things for Brazilian athletes," Aldo said. "In a conversation, Dana himself came and told me not to take anyone’s sides because the cake would be split the same for everyone, but I could get a bigger slice if I stayed quiet. We should have that a long time ago already," Aldo said. "Pepper in other's a** is refreshment. When everyone can talk, nobody does, but when you feel it yourself… I think our class is disorganized, disunited. If we were more united, it would be better, for sure. Nobody would do what they want with us. Today, they pay two, five, 10 thousand to fight in the UFC. This class is f**king disunited. It would be completely different for Brazilians if we were more united, not only in MMA."

Aldo is set to meet with UFC officials this week in an attempt to get out of his contract, this new revelation from the champion may not bode well for other talents, however.
