Tonight’s UFC 265 event was co-headlined by a men’s bantamweight matchup featuring former featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo taking on Pedro Munhoz.

Aldo (30-7 MMA) had last competed back in December, where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Marlon Vera. That win had snapped a three-fight losing skid for the Brazilian legend, who had previously suffered defeats to Petr Yan, Marlon Moraes and Alexander Volkanovski

Meanwhile, Pedro Munhoz (19-6 MMA) was returning to the Octagon for the first time since February, where he had picked up a unanimous decision victory over Jimmie Rivera. ‘The Young Punisher’ had gone 4-2 over his past six appearances overall ahead of tonight’s contest.
