UFC Quick Quote: Jose Aldo doesn't believe Kenny Florian and Chad Mendes will be his last challengers at featherweight

"Both athletes are high level challenges. I don't believe they're the last challengers I'll have. Featherweight division is one of the most complicated and tough classes in UFC. Every day there're new great fighters. I don't know where these guys come from (laughs)."

-- If Jose Aldo defeats Kenny Florian at UFC 136 on Oct. 8 in Houston, Texas, he'll likely have a match-up against Chad Mendes ready and awaiting him. But what if he wins that fight, as well? Some would already qualify that as having cleaned out the relatively shallow featherweight division. "Scarface" doesn't share those sentiments, however, as he believes (via Tatame) new top contenders are emerging every day. But is that really the case? Outside of recently signed Japanese guard smasher Hatsu Hioki, what other potential top contenders are waiting to emerge from the shadows to claim their place at the top of the division? Anyone?
