With contender after contender chomping at the bit to get a piece of his glory, it doesn't seem too intelligent for featherweight champion Jose Aldo to move to lightweight at this very moment.
It's bound to happen in the future, and I'm sure he'll have immediate success, but there's just too much going on in his own backyard to leave and try to hold two belts at once.
But just because it doesn't seem like a good idea doesn't mean Aldo isn't going to do it.
He was already set to battle Anthony Pettis for the featherweight title Saturday night before Pettis went down with an injury, so why couldn't he jump up to lightweight to fight Pettis if Benson Henderson is defeated at UFC 164 later this month?
It makes sense and it doesn't. If any one of the names on this list absolutely dominates in their next fight, then Aldo should stay. But if he's going to be fending off stagnant versions of Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson and Chad Mendes for the next two years, he should leave.
