WEC Quick Quote: Jose Aldo won't let Urijah Faber take away his dream on April 24


"I fight for my fans. I love putting on a good show for them, and I feel that they enjoy a good stand-up game. I am very excited to be headlining the first-ever WEC pay per view, and I can guarantee it will be a great fight. Urijah was the champion and has been a top fighter for some time. I knew that I would one day be facing him in the WEC. I don't know where the fight will take us, but I am confident that my game plan will bring me a great victory and allow me to keep my belt. It has been my dream to be the champion and I won't let that dream be taken away from me."

WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo tells Mike Chiappetta that his dream to become (and remain) 145-pound champion will not be taken away by former division title holder Urijah Faber when they meet in the hometown of "The California Kid" this Saturday night (April 24) at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. "Junior" is 6-0 under the WEC banner and has finished all six of his victims by way of (T)KO -- will Faber be number seven? Predictions please.
