On Saturday night, in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 30, former UFC featherweight champion and bona fide MMA legend Jose Aldo got back on track with a massive first round win over the dangerous Jeremy Stephens.
Stephens had Aldo in trouble earlier, pelting him with nukes against the cage, but Aldo kept his cool, regained his composure, and ultimately, flattened his adversary with a crippling shot to the sternum.
Unsurprisingly, Jose Aldo’s massive come from behind victory, which helped separate him from a pair of losses to reigning champ Max Holloway, generated some huge reactions from the MMA community.
Here are some of the best ones.

Awesome one round fight. Hard to argue that someone deserved that moment more than the FW GOAT. That body shot was vintage Aldo. Beautiful. #UFCCalgary
