It appears that Jose Aldo will once again be in the spotlight when the UFC returns to Brazil. Aldo and Erik Koch, who had their planned meeting at UFC 149 postponed due to an injury by “Scarface,” are expected to face off against one another at UFC 153 in October from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Aldo, the UFC featherweight champion, last competed in January of this year when he knocked out Chad Mendes in Rio. The man many consider one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world, sports a 21-1 record including thirteen knockouts.
Koch (13-1) has not fought since defeating Jonathan Brookins last year to secure his fourth consecutive triumph.
The Brazilian news source Zero Hora was first to report the planned main event.
