True Champion

With another amazing win I think Jose Aldo can be considered one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. Of course I already considered him one of the best P4P before tonight but with another devastating and brutal knockout over top contender Manny Gamburyan it just puts Aldo's name that much closer to Georges St-Pierre's and Anderson Silva's legacy on my P4P list.

Would people consider Aldo already better than Silva P4P? I can see a small argument there but I say Aldo needs a few more big wins before that happens. As of now, he's going to have to settle for 3rd place on my best "Pound for Pound" fighters list

Oh yeah, did I mention? Zhang Tie Quan won tonight too! He's the first Chinese UFC/WEC fighter I've ever seen fighting and he won via submission. Very nice Zhang, representing the China-men around the world very well.
