Jose Aldo puts brakes on retirement – signs exclusive deal with UFC

✅ The Brazilian former champion had been unsure of the future

Uncertainty has been clouding former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo’s thoughts as of late – but now he seems to have clear goals. Despite discussing retirement and not being sure of his future in MMA ESPN’s Brett Okamoto now reports that the Brazilian has signed  an exclusive, eight fight deal with the UFC. The information came directly from UFC president Dana White.

Aldo held the featherweight title for three years in the UFC, but lost it to rival Conor McGregor via knockout at UFC 194. He would retain UFC gold by winning the interim title after defeating Frankie Edgar via decision. He would then get knocked out in back to back fights with reigning champion Max Holloway.

One year later Aldo would re-enter the win column with a TKO win over Jeremy Stephens. he then faced countryman Renato Moicano and added another TKO win to his resumé. Aldo faced rising Australian star Alexander Volkanovski in his last outing and was promptly defeated via decision after three rounds.
