UFC President Dana White said that despite Jose Aldo’s victory against Ricardo Lamas at UFC 169 in the beginning of this year, he played it too safe.
Jose Aldo has a different belief, one he expressed to MMAFighting:
“I don’t care what he says. He’s a businessman, he wants to promote his shows. He wants us to go in there and do our best without thinking about the consequences. Whatever he says, I don’t care. I care about what Andre (Pederneiras) tells me, what we have to train and do. That’s what I focus on. I’m still evolving. I still have much to do to get better. That’s what I focus on. If I’m the No. 1 or not, I leave that to the media and the fans. To me, I’ll always be the best. I feel I’m the best technically speaking, but I never think I’m the best and I’m unbeatable. I do everything I can to stay champion.”
