Sometimes when you watch dominant fighters like Anderson Silva, Fedor Emelianenko and Georges St-Pierre compete, you forget that they’ve all tasted defeat. Jose Aldo is another MMA wrecking machine who, although maybe isn’t as far along in his career as the former list, falls under the same category.

If you haven’t seen the fight that gave him his lone blemish on his record, check out part one above and part two below. Paralleling Chael Sonnen‘s masterful performance against Anderson Silva at UFC 117 (minus the PEDs), Aldo controlled opponent Luis Azevedo for the majority of the Jungle Fight 5 bout, but the Nova Uniao fighter made a rookie mistake on the ground, giving up his back and just like that he was now a loser.

He bounced back from the loss, earned his black belt (although you wouldn’t know it considering he hasn’t won by submission since) and hasn’t lost or looked back at the fight with Azevedo since.

We’ve compiled some of Aldo’s greatest performances for you to watch in anticipation of his fight with Manny "I’m Fedor, bro" Gamburyan tomorrow night at WEC 51.

Check them out after the jump.

ok then name the top 5 middleweights not in the UFC and we'll see how it compares

Must not be very many good middleweights in the world then.

The thing is, a lot of good 145ers are not in the WEC.

Whereas 95% of the best middleweights are in the UFC.

Anderson has beaten 100% of the ones he's faced (he'll fuck up Okami if they fight again)

nice turn around at around 2:47 of the first video

he's much better than manny, but it is a good year to underdogs

Um, I think it's because the sarcasm fails, since many people consider Anderson to be better (pound-for-pound) than Fedor.

Damn, that man is 145 lbs of bas ass. I didn't think he'd beat Brown, but then I didn't think Manny would either. But Aldo's looked nigh on unstoppable as of late, and I like his chances better than Manny's.

Yeah right... If he's Anderson I'm Fedor *SARCASM*

Doesn't take a genius to understand what he meant.

Talented kid, but just like Faber, Fedor, Torres and every other "phenom" they make too many slow motion compilations about... he'll lose somewhere and immediately be cast down with the mere mortals again. And is Manny Gamburyn Fedor? No, but I wouldn't say he's a pushover the way he's been fighting. I'm actually hoping Manny wins. I enjoy the fights a lot more when someone's hype doesn't overshadow most of the fights and one loss will do that.

Ah, now I see all those holes in Jose's game that Fedo, uh, Manny was talking about.
