UFC 163 Fight Card: Jose Aldo Respects What ‘Korean Zombie’ Has Accomplished

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo wins.

Aldo, who has put together one of the longest win streaks in all of MMA, will look to defend his title once more this August when he faces Chan Sung Jung at UFC 163 in Brazil.

While many do not take the “Korean Zombie” has much of a threat, Aldo is preparing and focusing all of his efforts on his opponent.

“The fact that he reached this point and he’s fighting for the belt really means a lot. It means he has to be respected, and because of that I will train hard to be ready for him. I do think he fights very wide open,” said Aldo, in a recent interview with “He leaves a lot of opportunities to be struck. So if that;s the way he really wants to fight, then that is the way I want to fight as well.”

Aldo has successfully defeated the likes of Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendes and Kenny Florian since joining the UFC out of the WEC. He was originally set to face Anthony Pettis before “Showtime” was forced out of the fight with an injury.
