WEC Quick Quote: Jose Aldo wants to give the fans the show they want to see


"I don't think it's any surprise what I'm going to do. Everybody sees my style of fighting, I come in aggressive, I come in explosive, and I'm going to come in and always look for the knockout. I'm here to defend my belt. I'm an employee of Zuffa and the WEC, and this is the fight that they put in front of me, so my goal is to go in there and give it my all and give everyone the show that I'm sure everyone wants to see. I'm not going into this fight overconfident. Every time I go into a fight, I don't think about anything else than the opponent that's in front of me. I think Urijah was a great champion, and I'm going in very focused and not overconfident because I know anything can happen in there and I'm just going in prepared for anything."

WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo tells MMA Weekly that fans should expect a show, not surprises, when he tangles with former division title holder Urijah Faber 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 -- but does Faber have the right skill set to overcome his devastating offense? And if Faber can't do it, who can? Will it take a move up to lightweight? Opinions please.
