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.

UFC on ESPN+1 Primer: Henry Cejudo Is Trying So, So Hard

God bless little Henry Cejudo. The dude dethroned longtime flyweight king Demetrious Johnson, and suddenly found himself in a division on the cusp of being wiped from the face of the Earth (or at least the Octagon). So what does he do? Since he’s headlining UFC on ESPN+1 this weekend opposite bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw, Cejudo goes full on WWE.

At least, that’s what I think he’s doing. I mean, his efforts didn’t exactly translate into perfect execution… but the thought was there.

So here’s a look at the face-offs from today’s pre-fight gathering. Note Cejudo’s gold jacket. Also note that Dillashaw looks like an over-meth’d gypsy from somewhere in Eastern Europe.

I applaud Cejudo for all this. If he loses on Saturday, the flyweight division is surely dead. It might be surely dead even if he wins, but whatever.
