Nova Uniao fighter Jose Aldo has signed a five-fight deal to compete for World Extreme Cagefighting, sources in his camp confirmed to MMAWeekly.com.

His first bout for the Las Vegas-based promotion is expected to take place in June, although WEC officials say the location of the event has yet to be finalized.

A black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Aldo is also a strong striker that has fought all over the world en route to a 9-1 professional record. Currently riding a three-fight winning streak, he should be a welcome addition to the WEC’s 145-pound weight class.

As of yet, no opponent has been named for his first WEC bout. It will be his first fight in the United States.
