UFC Quick Quote: Jose Aldo is a 'cheap bastard'

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

UFC President Dana White gives his featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, a good-natured ribbing at last weekend's UFC 153 post-fight press conference. "Junior" injured himself on his motorcycle a few weeks back, which forced his employers to book Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar as the new main event in Rio. All's well that ends well, right?

"Jose Aldo, I love you man. But dude, you made a lot of money. You cheap bastard! Buy a car, alright man? You're still driving around on a motorcycle, for Christ's sake? He doesn't have a license? I don't even know what to say to that. Get a fuckin' ride, then. Have a friend pick you up and drive you."

UFC President Dana White takes a friendly shot at his featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, who was struck by a car last month while traveling on his motorcycle in Brazil. "Junior" was forced to bow out of this past weekend's UFC 153 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Rio, prompting promotion officials to cobble together a new main event between Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar. "The Spider" dazzled his hometown fans with a sensational first-round finish, but it was out of his weight class and no title was on the line. Anyone think the Brazilian fan base would have preferred to see Aldo defend his 145-pound strap against Frankie Edgar?
