When you talk about dominant champions in the sport, you think of Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre and then Jose Aldo. The featherweight champion won the title from Mike Brown in 2009 when the WEC was still around. The WEC merged with the UFC, and Aldo was declared the UFC featherweight champion.
Aldo has made six defenses of the title, having defeated the likes of Urijah Faber, Kenny Florian and Chad Mendes. On Saturday night, Aldo gets his toughest test to date when he faces off with former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar in the main event of UFC 156.
A lot of fans still don't know a lot about the champion from Brazil. Let's take a look and see why you should be rooting for Jose Aldo on Saturday night.
