Dana White has a pointed message for critics of Jose Aldo getting a shot at Henry Cejudo. White spoke with TMZ and spoke about Cejudo defending his bantamweight championship against Aldo at UFC 250 despite Aldo’s only other bantamweight fight being a loss to Marlon Moraes. You can check out some highlights below per MMA Weekly as well as the full video:

On Aldo’s loss to Marlon Moraes: “I think (Aldo) won. I think the judges got it wrong and he won the fight. When you’ve done what Cejudo has done, he agrees. He texted me right after the fights and said Aldo won that fight. He wants to fight Aldo. He wants to fight the legend.”

On people who are complaining about Aldo getting the shot against Cejudo: “Then don’t watch it! People are full of s**t. People are full of s**t, it’s going to be an incredible fight. Aldo absolutely deserves this. Cejudo wants it. The champ-champ, the guy who won belts in two divisions wants to fight Aldo. So what does that mean? And Cejudo isn’t a guy running around looking for easy fights.”

Cejudo will face Aldo in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with UFC women’s featherweight champion Amanda Nunes taking on Felicia Spencer in a second title fight on the card on May 9.
