Jose Aldo’s defeat to Conor McGregor at UFC 194 within 13 seconds into the game shocked the entire world and Aldo was upset about the defeat to such an extent that he was seen crying in his locker room after the match.
However, unlike Ronda Rousey, Aldo is not shying away from public eye and is back to playing sports.
Aldo was recently seen playing at an exhibition football match in Brazil, reports Bloody Elbow.
In the clip, Aldo is seen rushing and making a mistake on defense which left the opposing team to score an easy goal.
In spite of the mistake, Aldo’s Time do Amor team was still able to go on and won the match against Time da Paz with a total of 8 goals to 4.
Aldo is a regular participant at charity football matches and participated at a charity match at the same time last year too.
It seems that the former featherweight champion who had not lost a fight in ten years until his defeat to Conor McGregor is getting his grip again and is slowly on his way to a rematch with McGregor. At his post-match conference, Aldo said that he needs a rematch for he thinks it “doesn’t end there”.
Talks of a rematch between the two are doing the rounds, though nothing official has been confirmed yet.
Referee Big John McCarthy took to Twitter earlier this month and revealed that McGregor offered Aldo a rematch during his post-fight celebration.
And now welterweight grinder Matt Brown too has expressed an interest in seeing Aldo and McGregor in a rematch.
“I think Aldo should fight Conor. Yeah, I think so 110 percent,” Matt Brown said on the latest Great MMA Debate podcast.
“I think Aldo has done everything to deserve whatever he wants at this point in his career. That son of a b–ch has been a champion for however many years, undefeated for 10 years, he’s been an honorable soldier for the UFC. Maybe he’s not the most marketable guy so that’s the reason he’s not getting it, but he just f—ing deserves it.”
