UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo may not have realized it at the time, but when he sprinted from the Octagon and celebrated with the mass of fans at UFC 142 he likely cemented his legacy in the fight promotion.
After ending Chad Mendes evening in the main event of the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil card with a perfectly-placed knee, “Scarface” ran into the large group of Brazilians and celebrated to the chagrin of the security guards in the arena.
None of that mattered to Aldo, however, as the champion just wanted to be among those that meant so much to him.
“My fans give me so much love and so much good energy, so there’s nothing better than celebrating with them,” Aldo explained after his moment in the mass of fans.
It remains to be seen who Aldo will face next for his UFC title, but those watching will likely never forget the scene they saw at UFC 142.
