#3 Brian Bowles made his UFC debut against #16 Damacio Page at UFC Live 3 and it ended exactly the same way their previous contest had with Bowles winning by guillotine choke at 3:30 of the first round.
Now #1 Jose Aldo defended his title for the first time against #3 Urijah Faber at WEC 48. Aldo looked positively sensational in the bout, easily routing the California Kid while leaving the Team Alpha Male member unable to walk for days with damage left from brutal leg kicks. No word has yet been made official by the WEC.
American Top Team's #1 Mike Thomas Brown continues to be the top-ranked fighter in MMA's featherweight division. He is set to defend his title against #3 Jose Aldo at WEC 44 on November 18th in Las Vegas.

American Top Team's "simple man" is still sitting pretty as #1 Mike Thomas Brown remains the top-ranked fighter in MMA's featherweight division. Whether he'll be able to hold onto the belt when he faces #5 Jose Aldo at WEC 44 is another matter.
