Overlooking a dangerous foe such as "The Korean Zombie" wouldn't be the smartest thing to do, according to Aldo, who wants to takes things one step at a time as he recently declared during this week's UFC 163 media conference call.
"One step at a time. I want to focus on my fight against the 'Korean Zombie' and then we'll worry about a potential lightweight move. I don't want to take too big of a step. I respect my opponent and can't overlook him."
Should Aldo defeat Jung, it will mark his fifth consecutive title defense at 145 pounds, so a move up to lightweight could present new and perhaps bigger challenges.
