“I did see that he had separated his shoulder and kicked him…”—Jose Aldo
Yeah he did. At least we now know you can destroy a zombie with a well-placed body blow. In preventing Jung from eating his brains, Aldo solidified himself as a rival-less champion at 145. I gave Pettis a solid chance at stealing the title, but it seems his toe dipping days at Featherweight have come to an end. Looks like we’ll just have to wait for them to clash at 155. It feels like that’s all we have to look forward to with Aldo. Until he jumps to Lightweight, it may be difficult getting excited about his upcoming bouts. That’s not to say he won’t have some epic battles at 145, I just don’t think they will look super attractive on paper. Nonetheless, divisions are fluid and any number of challengers could emerge at the drop of a hat. Congrats to Aldo—even with a broken foot, he proved to be a monster more than capable of killing the undead.
