UFC 136: Jose Aldo will have no problem making weight for Kenny Florian fight

The first time Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo defended his title inside the Octagon, against Mark Hominick at UFC 129, he had a highly publicized brutal battle to make weight.

In fact, the promotion recently released a video detailing "Junior's" struggles to cut down to 145-pounds for that fight before quickly pulling it from its YouTube channel to avoid controversy. 

Yes, it was that bad for the young king of the featherweight division.

This time around, he's set to battle Kenny Florian, who started his career at 185-pounds and is also battling the bulk. "Scarface" recently stated at the UFC 136 open workouts (via MMA Nation) that he doesn't anticipate any issues.

"This time is gonna be a lot easier. The last time he hadn't fought for a few months so he was out of the weight cutting loop for a little while so it was a little harder but this time he came in a lot lighter and it's going to be a lot easier."

If the picture above, taken just yesterday, is any indication, Aldo is in phenomenal shape and "KenFlo" has one hell of a fight ahead of him. That said, if he struggles at times to make weight, why not just move up to 155-pounds to test the waters there?

Hear his answer, and much more, after the jump.
