Jose Aldo successfully completed his fifth featherweight title defence on Saturday night after a dominant performance over Korea's Chan Sung Jung in the UFC 163 main event.
Aldo claimed victory at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, after a fourth round stoppage Jung's title dreams.
The Brazilian, who was helped out by the fact that Jung was carrying a shoulder injury, now takes his record to 23 wins with one loss.
Meanwhile 'The Korean Zombie's' defeat means he now has four losses and 13 wins in his professional career.
Jung began his first championship fight brightly, however it was Aldo who landed the first big hit with a hard righthand after a minute.
The Korean tried to land one of his own but Aldo continued his tight defence before landing the first kick off the match which was followed by a takedown as the Brazilian extended his first round lead.
Jung began to take more risks during the second, leaving himself vulnerable to counter punches while he tried to score jabs of his own.
Another takedown from Aldo meant the Korean ended the round on his back .
Aldo continued to dominate in round three as he scored with a double leg takedown, before Jung found himself pinned against the fence as his woes continued.
The fight was over soon after as Jung saw his right shoulder pop out, with Aldo taking full advantage landing a number of unanswered hits before a stoppage was called.
Speaking after his victory, Aldo revealed how he took full advantage of his opponents injury.
“Yes, I did see that he separated his shoulder so I kicked him and tried to put him on the ground so I could ground and pound.” said the 26-year-old.
