Jose Aldo WAS a good champion. A great champion. He was undefeated for over ten years, and he ushered in the WEC era and all featherweights into the Octagon.
Now, it’s all over. Still, at 29-years-old, there’s no reason why Jose couldn’t head back to the top, but the utter confidence Conor McGregor showed post-fight in knowing EXACTLY what he had to do in order to win, makes me think that Jose won’t be able to beat Conor.
Jose probably knows this too. And this is him, post fight, finally coming to grips that he is no longer the king.
