Jailton Almeida, the Brazilian heavyweight contender, experienced both disappointment and growth in his recent UFC journey. His loss to Curtis Blaydes at UFC 299 left him with mixed emotions, especially considering the implications it had on the interim title picture against Tom Aspinall. Let’s delve into Almeida’s perspective on the missed opportunity and the lessons he’s taken away.

The What-Ifs and Regrets

Almeida can’t help but think about the “what-ifs.” With heavyweight champion Jon Jones sidelined due to injury, the interim title became a focal point. Tom Aspinall, the interim champion, was set to defend against Blaydes at UFC 304. However, Almeida acknowledges that it could have been him in that spot had he defeated Blaydes. The realization stings, and he describes it as “sad.”

The Blaydes Fight: A Bittersweet Battle

Facing Blaydes was a significant opportunity for Almeida. He started strong, showcasing his grappling skills by landing nine takedowns in the opening round. However, Blaydes adjusted, stuffing Almeida’s takedown attempts and ultimately securing a knockout victory. Almeida reflects on the fight, emphasizing that it wasn’t a true defeat in his mind. He believes he needed a better strategy and more patience.

Tom Aspinall’s Patience and Strategy

Interestingly, Almeida offers advice to Tom Aspinall, cautioning him not to repeat the mistakes he made against Blaydes. Patience, he emphasizes, is crucial. Aspinall’s upcoming bout against Blaydes at UFC 304 presents an opportunity for him to learn from Almeida’s experience. Almeida hopes Aspinall will be patient and avoid overextending early in the fight.
