At one point of time it seemed as if Jose Aldo, to put it into much simpler terms, just couldn’t be defeated. However time catches up with even the greatest of champions and Aldo is no exception. When Mcgregor snapped Aldo’s winning streak with the left hook on Aldo’s chin, many were of the school of thought that Aldo would never be the same fighter again.
And the line of thought even proved to be correct when Max Holloway defeated Aldo for the belt, not once but twice. However, Aldo proved at Calgary that he still has what it takes to knockout one of the best knockout artist in the lightweight division.
Aldo was emotional after the fight when he took to Instagram to share a picture of his team in the Octagon with a caption in Portugese which read – “This is family !! I love it, and nobody will ever take it from me !!”
While Aldo has expressed his desire to fight for the title before his UFC contract expires, the road to a title shot may not come that easy for Aldo, who surprisingly fought his first non title fight against “Lil Heathen”.
