Urijah Faber Believes He Can Match The Speed of Jose Aldo In Possible WEC Featherweight Title Fight

The former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber talks about a possible title fight against current champion Jose Aldo.  Aldo seems almost invincible with nine consecutive MMA wins under his belt including six victories in the WEC.  Faber breaks down Aldo’s skills and seems very confident that he can match up well with the Brazilian Jiu-JItsu black belt fighter.

From Urijah Faber:

“First off, you have to be able to match his speed, which I know I can do. Just be wary of all his tools. He’s got some really dangerous tools. Stand up, he’s got those low leg kicks that open things up for him. He’s got the knees that seem to reach people’s faces very, very easily, and he’s got really fast, powerful hands. So I’ll be aware of that, have good defense, and be ready to throw my own heavy punches and be able to dictate where the fight goes with takedowns. And I feel like, even though he’s a black belt, I feel like I still have the grappling edge.”
