Aldo will make his first appearance as a bantamweight at UFC 245 on December 14. He faces Marlon Moraes in Las Vegas and fans have expressed concerns that he'll fail to hit the 136lbs limit.

Images of the Brazilian have been shared online with the 33-year-old looking very gaunt and tight at the weight.

Aldo, who currently weighs around 152lbs, spoke about his weight cut to bantamweight and he revealed that he's eating almost two pounds of salad a day to make weight.

"Yeah, I've always done that, but this time I can't [eat steak]," he explained.

"Only if it were a vegan steak house, salads only. I'm eating that a lot now, almost two pounds of salad a day. But I'll be able to do that the Saturday after the fight."

Aldo's coming off a decision defeat to Alexander Volkanovski and he has claimed that his defeat to the Australian hurts a lot more than his 13-second knockout to Conor McGregor back in 2015.

"It hurts a lot more, for sure," he said. "Conor and I, we fought and he landed a good punch. In Rio, it was about the performance. That's what bothers me. I couldn't do anything.

"I didn't try anything. If you lose but try something, okay. You get sad for the loss, but you tried, you fought. But that one, I'm embarrassed. I can't watch that fight.

"I was too dumb. I had knee surgery and everybody told me not to fight but I was dumb to ask for a fight," he added.

"It's no one's fault nor an excuse for the loss. The moment I accept a fight I have to be ready. I thought I could win, I was well-trained, I was in my city, but it was a total mistake not doing everything I trained and 'Dede' asked me to do."
