Jose Aldo can’t wait for December 12.

The UFC featherweight champion oozes confidence that he will stop the hype train known as Conor McGregor at UFC 194 and be done with all the trash talk.

And the Brazilian, who claims to be more relaxed than he was in the build-up to UFC 189, has revealed what his plans are after he finally meets his Irish rival.

Aldo said: “After this fight, after we win, I don’t know who it’s going to be.

“I don’t know if it’s going to be Frankie [Edgar] or if Chad [Mendes] wins and ends that possibility.

“But I’m also interested in fighting this Hawaiian kid, Max Holloway. He’s a young kid coming up and I believe he has an opportunity but one step at a time.

“First December 12 and then I’ll think about it. But one thing’s for sure, after the fight it’s time to play football.”
