The announcement of the merger between the UFC and WEC was less than an hour old when the news came down that Jose Aldo will be the first of the newly renamed UFC champions to put his belt on the line.

During a conference call to formally announce the merger, UFC president Dana White confirmed that Aldo would defend the featherweight championship at UFC 125 on January 1.

White didn't name a challenger, saying that the promotion is still working on an opponent, but he sounded definitive of Aldo participating in the annual New Year's weekend event.

Josh Grispi? Mark Hominick? Tyson Griffin?

I know it wouldn't work but Melendez seems to me like he could make 45 easy. That would be a fight I would really like to see.

Not saying Carwin is. I LOVE Carwin, but I'm in a bromance with Aldo.
