Jose Aldo To Go Back To His Roots.
Former Featherweight Champion To Compete At IBJJF.
Jose Aldo is taking a break from MMA, by going back to his roots of Brazlian Jiu-Jitsu. The former featherweight champion is set to compete in the IBJJF’s Master International Championship in Rio de Janeiro. It is set to take place on the 28th and 29th of July. It was announced on Thursday night by Federation themselves.
Breath of fresh air for Aldo.
Aldo last competed against Max Holloway at UFC 212 suffering a TKO and losing his title in the process. It could be a breath of fresh air for Aldo as it’s the second TKO/KO in 3 fights. So this could a way of Aldo getting his head straight and rejuvenating himself. Once seen as the most dominant champion in the bantamweight division, Aldo has come under much scrutiny in recent times. This was due to the amount of times he withdrew from fights.
Jose Aldo is no stranger to the BJJ world though, having began his career training Capoeira, moving on to BJJ at 17. Aldo, excelled in BJJ winning 3 championships in 4 years, all at different belt levels. Now a Blackbelt in the art, he will be aiming to get a 4th title.
