Dana White On Jose Aldo’s Future: ‘He Might Move To 155′

Dana White On Jose Aldo’s Future: ‘He Might Move To 155′

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has yet to be defeated since entering the UFC from the WEC.

This coming Saturday night, he’ll seek another title defense when he faces Chan Sung Jung in Brazil at UFC 163.

Originally, Aldo was to meet Anthony Pettis, but an injury allowed “The Korean Zombie” a shot at becoming the first man to top “Scarface” inside the Octagon.

Many feel it is only a matter of time before Aldo moves up to lightweight – or event welterweight – as he has struggled lately to make the cut to 145 pounds.

“He’s intent to stay at 145,” said White, during an interview Saturday night at UFC on FOX 8. “If he gets by ‘The Zombie,’ he might move to 155, but who knows. Anderson Silva has stayed at 185 this whole time when we thought he could make a move to 205.”

Aldo has defeated the likes of Chad Mendes, Kenny Florian and former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar over the past several title defenses.
