The featherweight division in the UFC has become one of the most exciting in all of MMA.
It’s a fight that came about only after former WEC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis fell out of the title fight with a knee injury. Jung then was moved into the slot – after more than a year off recovering from injuries. That title opportunity came much to the chagrin of fighters like Ricardo Lamas, who was scheduled to meet the “Zombie” at this past weekend’s UFC 162, and Cub Swanson.
But Jung has the title shot nonetheless, with Lamas and Swanson waiting in the wings.
Now you can take a look back at the fight that got Aldo his featherweight title to begin with – his championship win over Mike Brown at WEC 44.
