Jose Aldo has a new challenger, and it's somebody that won't fear him when it's time to fight.

WEC 51 is currently in the planning stages for Sept. 30 in Broomfield, Colo. The headliner for the event will pit featherweight champion Jose Aldo against Manny Gamburyan.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight who stated both competitors have verbally agreed to it.

WEC General Manager Reed Harris spoke to MMAWeekly Radio last week about the possibility of the fight. While he stopped short of confirming the bout, it sounded like all signs are pointing in that direction.

 Manny deserves it, but he will likely lose. Whatever it will be exciting

This. Aldo is head and shoulders above everyone at 145. He will either have to get bigger to take on more challenges, or end up recycling the same beatings for a long time. I'd love to see him vs. Sandro, but they are teammates. Dammit.

guessing this will be on Versus?

great fight, a deserving contender, guessing Grispi will get the next shot

Manny is a really tough guy who should not be underestimated, im still taking Aldo though

Aldo looks unstoppable right now. I have been able to bring one of my friends over from the darkside by showing him a few of Aldo's fights.

Gamburyan vs Aldo?

WTF?

He's not going to walk again after this fight, I dont give a fuck how big Manny has gotten since his TUF. Ask Urijah Faber who thought his knee was ok, so he drops down further in weight, then gets injured 3 months plus later in training due to damage Aldo did to his knee.  lol.

Dude, Aldo is going to go after that gimp knee of Gamburyan like a dog after a steak.

GTFO with this matchup. 

Good luck Manny.  You're going to need it.

I remember talking like this with Coleman vs Smith.

I remember people talking like this about Serra vs Carter.

Never count anyone who is a real athlete.

 Oh I agree, but is Manny a "REAL" athlete?
I don't like Faber. I think he's a tool that was on top longer by facing smaller guys, then when the competition got stiffer vs bigger guys he got owned.

But Faber was an athelete.

I dont think Gamburyan, although improved is really an athlete.

He's going to get hurt vs Aldo.  And I dont wish that on any fighter? But he's going to get hurt.

When they aren't lost fighters like Ernie Verdecia or the like, they always have a chance.

You have to understand the hype train behind Coleman when he lost.

He seriously tore through some of the scariest people in MMA at the time.

We thought he was going to pull off Maurice Smith's head and shit down his throat.

Not a single person gave him a chance.

Cat Shannon - It'll be an exciting fight, what more do you want?

Sure the final line will looks something like:

Aldo -10,000
Gamburayan +10,000

...but who cares, Manny will go out SWINGING!

Manny earned the shot by beating Mike Brown, the fight makes perfect sense. Aldo will win it convincingly though.
