But was kind enough to let Manny Gamburyan have the first round to get some work in...

"I did everything I trained for. I was able to come in with a clear mind and execute my gameplan. It's the same thing that happened against Urijah (Faber), they gave him the first round. I tried to study my opponent in the first round and in the second round I was able to execute my gameplan. I saw what Manny was doing and I wanted to take the shortest route to the end of the fight. Just like Manny earned his title shot, there's a lot of guys who are going to earn their title shot. I'm here for the WEC, I'm going to have to be ready for whoever they put in front of me."

WEC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo throws another body on the pile after making Manny Gamburyan's legs twitch at the WEC 51 Versus event last night (Sept. 30) in Broomfield. "Junior" tells reporters at the post fight press conference (via his translator) that he's ready to accept the next challenge in his division. Is there anyone at 145-pounds that can stop him? Or even give him a run for his money? Or is the Brazilian's future at lightweight as a UFC fighter?
