Jose Aldo made a fans night following his UFC 218 title fight loss to Max Holloway.

The former featherweight kingpin, Aldo, suffered his second straight TKO loss to Max Holloway in the main event of last night’s UFC 218 fight card in Detroit.

Aldo had a solid opening few minutes before Holloway would once again turn the tide late in round two.

“Blessed” would crank up the pressure in round three and eventually put Aldo away with strikes (watch that here).

Despite the devastating setback, the Brazilian mixed martial arts legend, Aldo, still found time to visit with fans following his loss to Holloway.

Check it out:

“To any fans of Jose Aldo/MMA. After his loss, I waited in the fighters’ hotel afterwards without much expectation knowing he must be devastated. When he saw me, he hugged & embraced me, thanked me, talked and stood for pictures. 1 of the greatest fighters ever, an even greater man.” – AJ

UFC interim featherweight title belt

Jose Aldo’s most recent victory came at UFC 200 in July of 2016 when he defeated former lightweight title holder Frankie “The Answer” Edgar via unanimous decision.

Could we potentially see the longtime featherweight champion make a move up to the UFC’s lightweight division? Sound off PENN Nation!
