Jose Aldo eyes UFC future after taking care of featherweight business




"At the moment I am still not thinking about it. First I have to train and defend the title a few times in my division. It is a plan for the future, but not now, just for a distant future. I intend to fight in the UFC, absolutely. I do not believe in fighting against B.J. or anyone else (right now). Before I get there, I have to do some fights to adapt to the weight, and then I'll just see what happens."

145-pound wrecking ball Jose Aldo makes no bones about moving up to lightweight for a future in the UFC; however, "Junior" recognizes he still has some unfinished business in the WEC featherweight division and will need a few fights to adjust at 155-pounds before taking on the world's best. Still, it's hard not to get excited about the prospect of Aldo mixing it up with the UFC's best -- especially after he laid waste to Urijah Faber, Mike Brown, and pretty much anyone else the WEC had to offer.
