Jose Aldo’s long-dreamed-of shot at the WEC featherweight crown has come. As discovered by GRACIEMAG.com, the Brazilian fighter will face Featherweight champion Mike Brown on November 11.

“I found out the news yesterday, when I came to the gym to train. Dede [Andre Pederneiras] told me and I signed the contract. Now I’m just waiting for the day to get here,” said and excited Jose Aldo, exclusively to GRACIEMAG.com.

The Nova Uniao black belt made it clear, however, that despite the good news, he will remain concentrated and focused solely on the challenge at hand. “I’m only going to feel fulfilled when I conquer the belt, we have to work hard and consistently, since I still have another rung to climb,” stated the fighter.

“Mike Brown is a great athlete and he’s becoming more and more well-rounded as time goes by. He came over from wrestling and is really good at the style. His ground game has come a long ways. We’ll se. Now I’m going to travel with Marlon Sandro, my teammate, for the Sengoku final, August 2, and later when I return I’ll focus on training real hard and coming up with a good strategy,” he said.

With 15 wins and only one loss in professional MMA, Aldo has had a successful campaign in the WEC, winning all five fights in the organization by knockout, three in the very first round.

Mike Brown is undefeated since 2005, having won all four of his appearances in the WEC. His latest victim is former champion Urijah Faber, who he beat by unanimous decision in June of this year.

Knew this fight was coming. It's going to be a great fight. Definetally going to be Aldo's toughest test to date. Brown has faced stiffer competition so that should help in this fight. But he'd be insane to stand and bang with Aldo. He needs to go in this fight and imediately take him down. I know Aldo is a very good BJJ guy too but I believe that Browns wrestling nullifies it. I think Brown keeps his title here. By GnPing Aldo in the 2nd or 3rd round.

If Aldo was naturally bigger, even Fabiano's size, I'd like his chances with Mike Brown in his guard more. As is, I'm not sure he can handle the size of that guy.

Going to be a quick but good fight. I don't see it making it to the scorecards.

Great fight, Aldo is good, but I think M.T.B keeps the belt. he's looked great in he WEC and I think he'll be champ for a long time to come.
