Jose Aldo is Brazil’s last reigning UFC champion, and he faces a very real threat in Chad Mendes next weekend.

Should Mendes earn the UFC’s featherweight strap, all belts will be owned by Americans.

Former UFC middleweight champ, Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva told MMAFighting it’s because of a lack of evolution in Brazil.

Check it:

“It’s natural. Brazilians forgot some things to focus more on other things. We forgot the evolution. It’s important. I speak for myself. In my last two fights, I should have evolved more, but I didn’t follow this evolution. That’s why I brought in (Ricardo) De La Riva, (Luiz Carlos) Dorea, (that’s why) Rogerio Camoes is always seeking evolution, (Josuel) Distak and the whole X-Gym team, to see how we can evolve.”
