"Make no mistake about it. He's coming out to 'Run This Town' on purpose."
That's what UFC commentator Joe Rogan said during the WEC 48 telecast last Saturday night as WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo entered the cage to the Jay-Z/Rihanna/Kanye West banger "Run This Town".
The Brazilian dynamo proceeded to give challenger and former champ Urijah Faber a thorough five-round beating - in Faber's hometown of Sacramento.
Jose Aldo had already wowed the MMA fans of Sacramento with his knockouts of Alexandre Nogueira and Cub Swanson. When he successfully defended his WEC featherweight title by taking apart Urijah Faber, he ran the town - at least for a night.
And after the dust had settled, I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted to listen to some Rihanna.

Even though I haven't gotten into the popular music of recent years, Rihanna is someone who has caught my ear with her soulful voice and edgy songs like "Umbrella" and "Unfaithful". I wanted confirmation of why her music has captivated my soul...
And why her beauty has made my heart skip a beat.
This talented diva, fully packaged with sassy style, attitude and beauty, is the real deal.
