Jose Aldo reigned as king of the featherweights for a long time, but every reign inevitably comes to an end.
Someone needs to explain that to the poor guy.
At yesterday’s UFC 200 press conference at Madison Square Garden, the Brazilian took the mic and declared that he still considers himself champ – despite having been dispatched in a mere 13 seconds by a Conor McGregor knuckle sandwich all those months ago.
Bro. Come on.
Aldo also went on to compare that fight result to Halley’s Comet, in that it occurs once every 100 hundred years. I can understand a fighter talking smack, and needing to pump himself up after a crushing loss, but there comes a point when it all ventures into the realm of long-term brain injury.
