While watching a presentation for the new game UFC Undisputed 3, José Aldo cracked a smiled when seeing the possibility of fighting under PRIDE rules. When questioned as to why, he went on to explain:
I have fought under (PRIDE) rules in the beginning of my career. Stomps were permitted everywhere, kicks on the ground, you could stomp the head… You could even "kill the cockroach," it was so awesome.
Aldo went on to thank the developers for making him "prettier" in the game and concluded with the following:
It’s a dream for me to be part of a game such as this. I never thought I’d reach such a level one day.
