Anderson Silva happy to be compared to Jose Aldo

These two are really similar fighters. Never thought I'd say there's anyone that compares to Anderson's style, but if there is a fighter like Anderson it's gotta be Aldo.

"Man, I get really happy to be a reference in relation to Jose Aldo. It's nice that people think that. This guy is a talent; a young kid that's building his niche in the sport. He has a great team behind him and he has everything needed to stay champion for many years and to bring more happiness to his team and to Brazil." -Anderson Silva

UFC middleweight champion and pound-for-pound great Anderson Silva is delighted to have his name mentioned in relation to WEC dynamo and newly crowned featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Aldo's (16-1) style and skill set are strikingly similar to that of Silva's. Both have a long, lean frame, though Aldo stand 4-inches shorter and forty-pounds lighter, both are striking savants that routinely pull off flashy, kung-fu movie quality moves with unmatched quickness, and both are Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts with good takedown defense. And now, both are champions.

Aldo defeated the highly regarded Mike Brown last Wednesday at WEC 44, serving up a thrilling 2nd-round knockout over the American Top Team product and likely ushering in a new era in MMA's featherweight division.

Next up for the 23-year-old phenom could be a showdown with the winner of Urijah Faber vs. Raphael Assuncao set for WEC 46.
Nice interview.

There are those fighters who I really just can't wait to see fight again because of their style...Aldo and A. Silva, Fedor, are very much on the top of that list. I hope he has a long run of good fights as champ!

The thing is, Aldo has much better TDD

Compare Anderson vs Hendo and Aldo vs Brown.

Pretty similar match ups right?

Hendo takes Anderson down and controls the round.

Aldo stuffs Brown and makes him look amateurish in every sense.

Scary really.

It sure is scary. I look forward to Aldo-Faber, or Aldo other elite, fast AND strong featherweights.
I still think he'll win, but I could also see the combination of speed and power that faber has being too much for him, for just long enough, for Faber to get the belt back. Rgardless, some GOOD fights coming up at 145!!
