The current WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo definitely plans on making a move to the UFC lightweight division. Before he even decides to move there, he plans on defending his belt a few times to prove that he is fit and ready for a different weight class. Aldo is a black belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu expert, but he is making his name as a striker with six of his seven WEC wins ending in knockout or TKO.
From Jose Aldo:
“At the moment I am still not thinking about it. First I have to train and defend the title a few times in my division. It is a plan for the future, but not now, just for a distant future. I intend to fight in the UFC, absolutely. I do not believe in fighting against B.J. or anyone else (right now). Before I get there, I have to do some fights to adapt to the weight, and then I’ll just see what happens.”
