Dana White says Jose Aldo’s admission was a loss in translation

Earlier this week, the UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo shoved No. 1 contender Chad Mendes during the UFC 179 media day in Brazil. It was an odd scenario considering Aldo’s normally calm demeanor during media obligations. A day after the shove occurred, Aldo admitted to the Brazilian media that the shove was intended to promote UFC 179. Today, Dana White is backtracking...

Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes Get Physical at UFC 179 Media Day (Video)

These UFC media days are beginning to become more exiting than the fights themselves. Tearing a page out of the Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier playbook, featherweight king Jose Aldo (pictured) shoved Chad Mendes after the two engaged in a heated face-off Tuesday at the UFC 179 media day at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Mendes went nose-to-nose with Aldo, then whispered something...

UFC Would Arrange Interim Title Fight if Champ Jose Aldo Not Back by October

Despite being the only featherweight champion the UFC has ever known, rattling off six straight title defenses since the promotion introduced the division after absorbing the WEC in December 2010, UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta (pictured) would have no qualms with arranging an interim title tilt if champ Jose Aldo is unable to return by October. Aldo was slated to defend his throne against...

UFC 176 canceled after injury to Jose Aldo

UFC 176 was set to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 2, but on Tuesday the company was forced to cancel the event. Thanks to an injury to featherweight champion Jose Aldo, the UFC couldn’t replace the main event on such short notice and decided to cut its losses. It is the second time Zuffa (which owns the organization) has been forced to cancel a major...

UFC 176 ‘Postponed’ After Jose Aldo Injury

Unwilling to go down the same path as UFC 151, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has opted not to cancel UFC 176, but “postpone” the event instead. The event was slated to take place August 2 inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Featherweight king Jose Aldo (pictured) was slated to headline the show against Chad Mendes, but Aldo was forced to withdraw last week...

Pictures of Jose Aldo’s possible broken foot emerge.

You can’t throw kicks with broken feet, or you can, but it just hurts a lot and it isn’t entirely worth it. So, that’s why Jose Aldo wasn’t throwing kicks like usual – an elephant foot. It makes sense. He didn’t look like himself out there after the first round, and I suspect TKZ was bringing that injured shoulder into the fight with him in a bad way, and these kicks...

‘The Korean Zombie’ Dislocates Shoulder in Loss to Jose Aldo at UFC 163 (Video Highlights)

It wasn’t exactly what UFC featherweight king Jose Aldo (pictured) had in mind, but a win is a win. More importantly, a successful title defense is a successful title defense. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung didn’t attack the division’s deadliest marksman with the same ferocity as he has done with past opponents, and perhaps that’s the primary reason he was down three...

The Korean Zombie dislocates his shoulder and Aldo pounces on him for the win at UFC 163.

Well, sometimes weird fights end oddly, and I have a feeling both of these guys were walking into Rio de Janeiro injured, because Chan Sung Jung did not look like his usual self, and neither did Jose Aldo, who only threw one leg kick in the fight. Both men moved much slower than usual, but Jose looked like his usual awesome self in the technique department, but also looked to take...

In the Featherweight Championship bout of UFC 163, Jose Aldo retained his  title with a 4th round TKO of “Korean Zombie” . Jose Aldo stayed away from his trademark kicking style and waited out his opponent. In the middle of the 4th round, the two fighters exchanged a combination of punches at the center of the ring. Korean Zombie landed an overhand right to the back of the champion’s...
