Aldo's Great Eight: Joe Rogan ranks Aldo's eight best performances
If Jose Aldo were a heavyweight, he might be the most popular human being in the world of professional sports. He’s lost one of his twenty-five professional fights, is on a seventeen-fight win streak, and he has successfully defended his championship belt in all six of his UFC fights. Outside of Jon Jones, that makes him the most legitimate thing the sport of Mixed Martial Arts has going right now.

UFC Quick Quote: Mandatory military service will extend the career of 'Korean Zombie'
"It's not something that was a surprise. Since all able-bodied men are obligated to serve, I knew that it was something that I'd have to do at some point. It's the law and a duty of all Korean men. Those are the rules, so I have to abide by them. I'll be working in my local district office. Because of several surgeries that I had, I was given a government office job. I'm not sure exactly what I'll be doing there, though. I think this may extend my career, because it gives me some much needed time to heal. I'll have time to work on my skills without pushing myself to the limit, which is necessary when training for a fight."

Jose Aldo: Even though Anthony Pettis 'backed out' of UFC super fight, I still intend to face him
While reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo still has to get through Chad Mendes at UFC 179 this weekend in Brazil (more on that here), he still hasn't forgotten about the time lightweight champion Anthony Pettis challenged him to a 145-pound "super fight" -- only to later back out. Perhaps if "Showtime" can get past Gilbert Melendez in December, the Aldo vs. Pettis chatter can regain some momentum. Unless, of course, a certain "Notorious" Irishman crashes the featherweight party.
