Jose Aldo Interested In Move Up To Lightweight, If UFC Asks

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo didn’t make any radical demands following another successful title defense Saturday night at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie.

Aldo finished off Chan Sung Jung in the fourth round of a fight he was winning on all the scorecards, extending his current win streak to 16.

So, what is next for Aldo? A move to lightweight, as most have predicted?

“I don’t know,” he said, during the post-fight show on FUEL TV. “That’s up to (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva, but I would move up to 155.”

Aldo has stated in the past that his ever-growing body will eventually force a move to lightweight, but his coaches spoke this past week about his most recent weight-cut being the best of his career.

The Brazilian likely suffered a foot injury when he landed his first kick on “The Korean Zombie,” forcing him to change his game plan on the fly.
