Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo may soon follow in the footsteps of Conor McGregor and take his talents to the boxing ring. 

"He’s training boxing because he has this dream of competing in professional boxing," his coach, Andre Pederneiras told . "If it was up to him, he’d fight all of his UFC fights (left on the contract) in three months and go box. He wants to box professionally."

"He doesn’t want to stay inactive for a long time, and there’s both sides: He definitely wants to finish the contract," he added.

Aldo has four fights remaining on his UFC deal.
