The last time UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo fought in his home country of Brazil he knocked Chad Mendes out with a second to go in the rumble’s opening round before running out of the cage and into the crowd to celebrate with his countrymen. While its unknown if the 22-1 Aldo has similar antics planned entering tonight’s tilt at UFC 163, there’s little doubt “Scarface” was aiming to find similar success against Chan Sung Jung (13-3).
Aldo looked sharp as usual in the bout, landing some solid shots throughout. Unfortunately, injury interfered with the ultimate outcome, as an issue with Jung’s shoulder opened him up to the strike-based stoppage defeat in the fourth frame of the fight.
Perosh pulled off the upset, knocking Magalhaes out in fourteen seconds, while Leites returned to the Octagon in fine form and grappled his way to a Unanimous Decision nod. Meanwhile, Machida’s meeting with Davis was a competitive affair though one seeing “The Dragon” get the edge more often than not minus a few takedowns. However, Davis’ ability to put Machida on the mat a few times turned out to be enough, earning him the judges’ favor and a victory.
