“We need to know how to handle the criticism. You dedicate and suffer a lot to showcase your technique and ability, things that few people can do, and some people say you’re laying back. It’s tough, but I don’t care about this. If you lose, no one will remember you, but if you’re the champion they will always remember you. I want to keep winning, no matter what. The [pound-for-pound] ranking is fucking useless, and I don’t care about it or anything people put on (about it). The best pound-for-pound fighter is (Cain) Velasquez because he beats all of them. If they put him against me, he’d beat me. That’s how it works for me. The best is that one that beats everybody. I don’t care about the rankings.”
In a recent interview with The Brazilian Press, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, touched on a gripe he has with the UFC Boss, Mr. Dana White.
Dana recently dubbed Renan Barao as the sport’s pound-for-pound best fighter, a designation that, in all honesty, should likely go to Aldo or maybe even Jon Jones,. Dana also called Aldo’s recent performances under question when he said that Jose, “just lays back” in his fights.
Aldo no like!
