Jose Aldo got that scar on his face by accidentally smashing into fence when he was running away from all the women who were chasing him after he made his WEC debut. Since then, I can’t keep Cat from throwing in some mention of Jose Aldo and her ‘knee-high socks’ whenever I talk to her. If the prerequisite of being desired by every female MMA fan is to run an entire division, then it looks like I’m going to stick with chicks that really like guys that can defeat Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out without losing a round (I know you’re out there, somewhere).
In this interview with GracieMag, Jose Aldo says it wouldn’t even be a problem for him to be competitive in the UFC lightweight division and after his recent performance at WEC 51, it’s hard not to believe him.
“I have what it takes to fight in the UFC, but that doesn’t depend on me. I’d have to talk to the people who work with me, like Dedé (Pederneiras), my coach, and Joinha (Jorge Guimarães), my manager. What they decide on is always what’s best. But I believe I have all it takes to fight in the upper division. There’d be no problem at all.”
Correction Jose, there would be no problem for people not in the lightweight division. For guys like us, Joes Aldo is correct. For every other 155lber out there, Jose’s right knee may temporarily interrupt their consciousness. [Source]
