UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo has discussed moving up to the UFC's lightweight division in the past but now with a bout against former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar on the horizon, a win would likely solidify it:

The 145lbs. champ talked about a possible move this week with MMAFighting.com:

“I've considered going to lightweight. As soon as my trainer decides that I can go up, then I will. This fight with Edgar will be a turning point. If I can win [against] him well, then I can prove that I can go [to lightweight]. He has a very strong reputation thanks to destroying several opponents. That's the motivation for me to face him and that will be probably my last biggest challenge [at featherweight].”
