‘Sad’ Jose Aldo Issues Statement On His Loss Against Alexander Volkanovski
A former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo was riding on a two-fight winning streak when he entered into his contest against No. 4-ranked challenger Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 237 PPV event in Brazil. However, Aldo couldn’t pull a trigger and drops a decision to Volkanovski.
Earlier today Aldo took to social media and expressed his disappointment on his UFC 237 loss. Sure thing he’ll lose his no.1 spot in featherweight rankings.
“I would like to thank everyone who was there and thanked everyone in the arena and in their homes, thank you very much,” Aldo wrote on Instagram. “I have never fought so badly in my life, no excuses but I know of my ability and talent. Without taking the merits of my opponent who made his fight, but I am sad with myself and I transfer everything in myself because I let it happen and I did not do the fight I was supposed to do.”

Queria agradecer a todos que estavam e torceram na arena e nas suas casas muito obrigado, agradecer a toda minha equipe @dede_pederneiras @mabogea @guidarellif os treinadores @emersonfalcaovieira @aleksandrofg @piratiev_oficial @rafaelviniciusbertho me colocaram como nunca estive antes! Mas nunca lutei tão mal na minha vida sem desculpas nenhuma porque não sou disso, mas sei da minha capacidade e talento e não posso fazer isso, sem tirar os méritos do meu adversário que fez a luta dele mas fico triste comigo mesmo e transfiro tudo em mim mesmo porque deixei acontecer e não fiz a luta que deveria fazer. Já passou e vamos pra próxima!👊🏽⭐️🥇
With a recent setback, Aldo (28-5) who widely regarded as one of the best featherweights of all time is back on the losing streak. He’s 3-3 since dropping a title to Conor Mcgregor back in December of 2015. ‘Scarface’ has one fight left in his contract before he says a final goodbye to the promotion.
