Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo returned to the Octagon last night (Sat. May 11, 2019) from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He took on rising 145-pound star Alexander Volkanovski.
Volkanovski showed tremendous skill inside the Octagon against, arguably, the greatest featherweight of all time. After three rounds of fighting, Volkanovski seemingly out-classed the Brazilian legend for 15 minutes. When it was all said and done, he was awarded the unanimous decision victory.
Now, he calls for a shot at the featherweight championship. Check out how the mixed martial arts (MMA) community reacted to Volkanovski’s big win on Twitter here:
