Jose Aldo is obviously past his prime, but has looked great even in a different division as of late. At UFC 265, the former long time featherweight champion got the co-main event slot opposite a contender in Pedro Munhoz. His brilliance continued, looking as sharp as ever, and flashing some vintage form with combinations, body shots, and hard leg kicks.
It’s insane how Aldo has stayed at the top of this game for so long, and it was a treat to see another great performance.
