Jose Aldo’s goal: “I want to break every UFC record!”

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has one goal and it’s to be the best fighter of all time.

“Scarface” spoke to about his UFC aspirations. Here’s what the longtime champion had to say:

“I want to be considered the greatest fighter ever.” Aldo stated through a translator.

Aldo went on to say that he has a lot of respect for his UFC 169 opponent, Ricardo Lamas, but that he knows he will emerge victorious on Saturday night:

“We both came from the WEC, and I know him well from that time,” Aldo said. “He’s a great fighter and a worthy opponent, and I think it’s going to be a good fight, but I’m going to win.

“I know he’s going to try to take the fight to the ground, but I’m very well-prepared. I’m the champion, and I’m going to go in there and win the fight.”

UFC president Dana White has said that if Aldo wins, a super-fight with lightweight champion Anthony Pettis is a possibility, something Jose seems to be down for. Becoming the third man, next to BJ Penn and Randy Couture, to hold belts in 2 weight classes is an opportunity Aldo would like to have:

“First, I have to beat Ricardo Lamas,” Aldo said. “But fighting Anthony Pettis is a possible opportunity I really like. It would be a new challenge, and I’d certainly consider that possibility, but it’s not just up to me. I have to talk with my coaches and team and consider the future of my career.”

At only 27 years of age, Aldo still has a lot of time left in the sport and some lofty goals to accomplish before he’s done:

“I’m very young, and I still have a lot to accomplish,” Aldo said. “But I feel like I can be the greatest ever. I want to break every UFC record.”

At this point, there’s no reason to think that Aldo can’t make his dreams a reality. What do you think Penn Nation, can Aldo be the best of all-time?

    You CAN’T be the best fighter ever at 45 or 55. The greatest fighter ever would have to be in the 05 or 65 divisions. Simple a fat Big County would beat the crap outta the best Aldo. Period!!

    • JCVD says:

      jerk off biatch, wtf are you talking about? how stupid you gotta be to compare HW with 45?

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        I’m not comparing HW to 45ers’ biatch…I’m stating that anybody that wants to be known as the best fighter ever needs to be able to beat anybody. Since a perfect Aldo could not beat a HW, then he CANNOT Be the best fighter ever. That can only be reserved for the big boys. Now if Aldo wants to be the best fighter at 45, then ok, BUT he can NEVER be the BEST FIGHTER ever!! Do you now comprende biatch or are you a haft-wit and need stick figures to comprende, ese!

        • Ninja says:

          It’s very possible he could beat HW’s, just not the ones that are skilled enough to tip the balance of technique and intelligence vs size, strength and speed.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          No HW in the top 100. If it is professional MMA HW fighter, Aldo would lose by annihilation or he would run away.

        • Nick M. says:

          Look at it as the most skilled not the one who would win.

    • Jamie says:

      Sure you can. That’s why the sport has weight divisions. That’s like saying “Mayweather isn’t the best boxer cuz even tho he’s undefeated he hasn’t beaten the HW champ.” Ludacris

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        We are NOT talking weight divisions, we are talking fighting. Mayweather would never beat a HW. Therefore, the only fighters that could be the BEST fighter of all time is a HW or possibly a LHW becasue they can fight anybody on the face of the Earth and win. Aldo can only beat people in his general weight spread. Think Royce Gracie he was a 70er and beat HW in his time. Wouldn’t happen today but do you understand my point now Ludacris?

        • Jamie says:

          Nope, still sounds retarded because there are no ‘open weight’ divisions or fights anymore. Meaning, fighters are judged on how great they are by what they do within their respective weight class. Odd time you get a guy like BJ who can win titles in multiple divisions. But that’s rare.

          Regardless, Aldo and Barao’s win streaks are incredibly Impressive and deserve respect

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Yep, what you need is intellectual honesty and paying attention to detail. If you want to talk about UFC in the 45 weight class, then yes, Aldo has held it the longest and may continue for awhile. And yes, Barao and Aldo’s win streaks are impressive and if you want to argue they are the best fighter’s in their weight classes up to now, then you would be holding the high ground.

          If you wish to argue that staying in the UFC box, that whoever holds the belt the longest in ANY weight class makes him the best UFC fighter because of the ONE criteria, then you can make that case. But if you use other criteria, then your postion begins to slip.

          BUT, now listen and listen well and have a little intellectual honesty no matter how hard that is for you. If we speak of fighting man to man, then a 45er etal, could NEVER be the best fighter of all time because he could never beat a big man.

          Now if you want to argue that Aldo held the belt longer at 45 then let’s say, Lesnar did at HW and that makes him a better fighter then you would be wrong. Because Aldo NEVER fought at HW. if you pared those two up in a unsanctioned UFC fight Lesnar would kill Aldo cuz he is bigger, stronger, etc.

          Now do you understand dummy?

        • Jamie says:

          Got it. But it’s all just theory until they actually fight. Anything could happen, Aldo could slip, duck, and rip a leg kick that lands and blows out a HWs knee. Just sayin. There’s no proof just theory and hypothesis

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Nah, you’re grasping at straws. You know and I know that Aldo would be killed by Any HW or LHW. What do you think would happen to Aldo if Cain or Jones got ahold of him????

        • Jamie says:

          Melvin Manhoef beat Mark Hunt
          Minowa beat Sapp
          Just saying, in the fight game you never know till they fight. All speculation

  2. Steven Thurman says:

    Pound 4 Pound he could easily be the best. Pound for Pound Meaning, that if WEIGHT was NOT a factor, who would win in a fight?

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      IMO that is an illogical fantasy that has no answer because it can never be objective only a subjective debate. I prefer what is real and Aldo or any of the baby weights can NEVER be considered the best because they could never beat anybody in the world, Whereas a mw, lhw or hw can potentially beat absolutely anybody worldwide.

      The conversation around the baby weights can only be around the P4P in those weights BUT NOT in all weights that is reserved for the big dawgs. That’s just the reality of fighting.
