AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The WEC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, was officially crowned the champ of the UFC's new featherweight division before UFC 123 got underway on Saturday. Aldo earned this new belt by virtue of the WEC's merger with the UFC. He will defend his new belt at UFC 125 on Jan. 1 against Josh Grispi.
