When Jose Aldo steps inside the cage at tonight's (Sat., Aug. 3, 2013) UFC 163 pay-per-view (PPV) at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he will do so having successfully defended the featherweight championship he's been holding since the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) days four times under the UFC banner and six total.
He's been dominant. At his weight class, he's been better than everyone else and it hasn't even been close.
That's where Chan Sung Jung comes in. It's hard to know if he's a worthy challenger, but his credentials are as good as anyone else in the division and, if nothing else, he did what Aldo couldn't and finished Mark Hominick.
In seven seconds, no less!
So, as UFC President Dana White would say, we'll see what happens.
