The Jose Aldo/Max Holloway Bromance Is the Best Bromance in All MMA

If not for the fistic stylings of Hawaiian slugger Max Holloway, it’s possible Jose Aldo would still be champ. But alas, in two go-arounds, Holloway beat the stuffing out of Aldo so thoroughly, it seemed like the Brazilian train was reaching its final destination.

But that doesn’t mean these two can’t be friends! And it certainly doesn’t preclude an epic bromance!

On Saturday night in Brazil, in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN+2, Aldo beat back fellow countryman Renato Moicano. It was a TKO reminiscent of the Aldo of old, and it prompted a social media comment from the reigning champ.

Aldo’s response? Oh, it was nothing but love, baby. As per MMAFighting:

“I think he’s a true champion,” Aldo said. “I’m happy about it because he deserves to be there, he deserves to be the champion. He achieved it, he’s battled from the beginning. He came into the UFC very young and I think that he conquered that. I have a lot of respect for him.

“He’s got a great story. He’s got a kid too, just like me, I have my family. So we defend that and I’m very happy and I wish him all the best at featherweight or at lightweight. I hope that he continues with his victorious path, always healthy.

UFC on ESPN+2 Primer: The Jose Aldo Train Is Coming to the End of the Line

It sort of goes without saying that Jose Aldo is a legend.

He was the first dominant “little guy” when the UFC got into the “little guy” business, and his run as featherweight champ saw a lot of carnage befall his enemies. A lot of carnage.

Of course, that all came to an end the night Conor McGregor starched him in seconds. And then there was now-champ Max Holloway, who beat the stuffing out of Aldo not once but twice.

Which brings us to today. Aldo has long flirted with the idea of retiring, and now that he’s gotten older and less capable of hanging with the youngsters, maybe that exit date has grown closer. He fighting against Renato Moicano at UFC on ESPN+2 this weekend in Brazil, in the co-main event slot, and you have to think that whenever a Brazilian fighter is close to calling it quits, he asks matchmaker Sean Shelby to make that last fight close to home, so…

…So I guess savor his fight this weekend? I mean, maybe he wins and fights again, or maybe he doesn’t and doesn’t.

Anyway, here’s Daniel Cormier giving the match-up some hype.
