Jose Aldo beats Chan Sung Jung to defend UFC belt for fifth consecutive time

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo (23-1) successfully defended his belt for a fifth consecutive time, earning a fourth-round stoppage over Chan Sung Jung (13-4) in the headlining bout of Saturday’s UFC 163 fight card at HSBC Arena.

Aldo looked comfortable for most of the championship contest, standing firm in the pocket and offering stiff counter shots each time Jung moved forward with flurries of kicks and punches. A few takedowns late in the opening round earned Aldo additional points, and he was up big on the judges’ cards heading into the championship rounds.
