6. Jose Aldo

With only two more fights left on his deal before he retires from MMA, tUFC really need to make sure Jose Aldo is in the most compelling and potentially exciting fights possible. Sure, he could take on anyone in the UFC's featherweight division and it would be fun, but it would really catch fan's attention if he finally moved up a weight class and fought McGregor in a rematch.

Their first fight was over so fast following a crushing left hook from McGregor, that you could watch the entire match on Instagram the next day. He might've looked a broken man then, but Aldo has rolled back the years in his last two fights, brutally finishing violent veteran Jeremy Stephens and young upstart Renato 'Moicano' Carneiro.

If 'Scarface' could bring the same level of tenacity and savagery to a bout with his former foe, then we could be in for the fight we expected three years ago.
