Last night, in the main event of UFC 212, featherweight great Jose Aldo gave up an early lead to succumb to third-round punches dealt by interim featherweight champion Max Holloway. It was a heartbreaking loss for Jose Aldo and his fans, and one that will be difficult to forget.

In the wake of Aldo’s tough loss to Holloway, former UFC middleweight champion and bona fide MMA legend Anderson Silva took to Instagram to console his fellow Brazilian and long-time friend.

Here’s what Anderson Silva had to say about Jose Aldo and his UFC 212 loss to Max Holloway:

“My brother,
