On another day, Rob Font believes he beats Jose Aldo.

Font suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Aldo in the main event of UFC Vegas 44 last night. It was a competitive fight throughout, however, Aldo landed the bigger and cleaner shots.

Not to mention the Brazilian also scored multiple knockdowns and controlled Font whenever the action was on the ground.

In the end, all three judges scored it to Aldo with two judges scoring every round to the former featherweight king.

It was a tough pill to swallow, but there was no shame in losing to one of the greatest fighters of all time for Font who feels he could still defeat Aldo.

“He caught me with some clean shots I didn’t see, and it was hard to see that extra third and fourth shot with my eye all swollen up,” Font said in his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier (via Middle Easy). “But that guy’s a legend. He’s tough. I feel I can beat him, but it just wasn’t my night. Hats off to him.”
