Jose Aldo: From Favela to the Octagon; plus, how will Florian handle this power?

In this first video, you will learn about the journey of UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo as he talks about his dreams as a youth of moving to Rio de Janeiro and doing big things. He explains how he started out training in Capoiera, then made the move and fell in love with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He said he used to live at the gym when Pedro Rizzo was knocking everyone out in the UFC and that is when he began to dream of being in the UFC.

In this second video, watch as Jose Aldo trains his striking in preparation for his fight Saturday against Kenny Florian at UFC 136. Will Kenny be able to survive Aldo’s striking power?
