Aldo vs Edgar: Power Ranking Jose Aldo's Title Defenses
Jose Aldo - Esther Lin/MMAFighting

The MMA world is enamored with Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones, but it could be Jose Aldo who truly proves to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the sport.

At only 26 years old, Aldo has defended his featherweight title six consecutive times, but his greatness stretches far beyond title defenses.

Aldo exudes the same otherworldly aura as the big three in the pound-for-pound category. The level of excitement and anticipation every time he steps into the Octagon rivals the same level of intensity as any all-time great.

Aldo's openness to move up in weight and challenge for the UFC lightweight title is what truly separates him from past, present and future champions. Randy Couture and BJ Penn are the only fighters in UFC history to ever hold a title in two separate weight classes.

Could Aldo be the third fighter to achieve such a rare accolade?

Today, we pay homage to Jose Aldo by power ranking his UFC and WEC title defenses.
