Jose Aldo in self-quarantine

Speaking to MMA Fighting’s Guilherme Cruz in a recent interview, the former UFC featherweight king described his less than ideal training camp for UFC 250 and said he would have no problem beating Cejudo on a weeks’ notice.

“I’ll separate a group of athletes, no more than five fighters that have been in quarantine as well, and I know they don’t have it, so they can train with me,” Aldo said. “I’ve proven I don’t have it (by staying at home for two weeks). If they don’t have it either, we can train and have contact. I’ll train exclusively with that group.

“We’re all isolated. We’re in quarantine, so, when it’s over, we’ll take all the precaution needed and be able to train jiu-jitsu and spar. We’ll be able to do out normal training. The gym is closed, so we’ll open it just for us and train without risking getting contaminated or contaminating others.”
