Both are fighters that the UFC does need to support better but as I have mentioned before they also needs to open up to US fans if he wants to become a PPV stars. I am sure the UFC makes good money off them via their Brazil network deals but we don't get to see those numbers to know how they compare to US stars selling PPV's. Both Aldo and Barao need to help the UFC out and do more interviews, media appearances and learn to speak English in order to become big stars in the US. Skill isn't enough to make a big star you have to act the part too, that is one of the reasons why Jones wasn't able to draw huge amounts in this event...
