Dana White: Aldo is not the P4P King

UFC President Dana White says that UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo is not the P4P King, this following “Scarface’s” victory over Ricardo Lamas at Saturday’s UFC 169 event in Newark, N.J..

Despite sporting a 23-1 record, which includes a 17-fight unbeaten streak, the longtime WEC/UFC featherweight title holder is just lacking in finishes according to the brash UFC president, as he told ESPN.com:

“The thing about Jose Aldo that drives me crazy is the kid has all the talent in the world,” White told ESPN.com. “He’s explosive, fast. He can do anything but he just lays back and doesn’t let anything go.

“When you talk about being the pound-for-pound best in the world, you can’t go five rounds with guys that it looks like you can defeat them in the second round. That’s what Aldo has a habit of doing.”

Four of Aldo’s past six victories have come by way of judges decision. Those decision wins came against opponents Mark Hominick, Kenny Florian, Frankie Edgar and Ricardo Lamas respectively.
