[VIDEO] Jose Aldo Returns to Brazil, Receives Hero’s Welcome José Youngs December 17, 2015 News, Spotlight, UFC, Video Jose Aldo recently lost his UFC featherweight title in one of most most devastaging ways in UFC history. But looking at the reception he received during his return to his home country of Brazil, you would never know. The former 145-pound champion, who saw his 6 year reign as champion and 10-year undefeated streak come to an abrupt end ay the hands of a 13-second knockout to Conor McGregor, returned to Brazil on Thursday morning and into the arms of dozens of fans and teammates welcoming home with a standing ovation. Still the people’s champion ….

Dana White, rematch right away.” However, it appears Aldo will have to wait for a chance to right the ship against McGregor since the new champion has made it clear he wants to move up to 155-pounds and challenge for his second belt. UFC President Dana White seemed to echo these comments, while also revealing the promotion would most likely book McGregor against Frankie Edgar instead of the rematch against Aldo.
