Five Opponents For José Aldo If He Moved to the UFC LW Division

Jose Aldo, for those of you who don't know, is the current featherweight (145 lbs.) champion of WEC. Since he made his debut in June 2008, he has obliterated everyone thrown at him.

His method of destruction has been varied, be it from double flying knees, kicks, or quick flurries of punches that somewhat resemble Vitor Belfort's inhuman quickness, only faster.

He hasn't lost a fight in four years, and overall has amassed a 16-1 record. On Saturday night he will step into the cage to defend his belt for the first time.

His opponent will be the most dominant featherweight in MMA history; Urijah Faber. Urijah Faber defended his belt five times en route to the title of world's number 1 featherweight.

He lost his title to Mike Brown. Mike Brown lost his title to Jose Aldo. A fight with Urijah Faber almost had to happen.

But what is in the future for Jose Aldo if he destroys Urijah Faber on Saturday night in Sacramento?

He could stay employed with WEC and defend his belt, or he could vacate the belt and move up to the UFC lightweight division.

If he chooses to do that, I've assembled five fighters that would make awesome opponents for him.
