Jose Aldo has some high expectations for himself and he talked about so goals of his. Check out the highlights:

“I want to be considered the greatest fighter ever,” Aldo told USA TODAY Sports


“We both came from the WEC, and I know him well from that time,” Aldo, 27, 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.”

“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.”


“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.”
