Former UFC Champion Jose Aldo To Be Inducted Into UFC Hall Of Fame
Aldo retired from MMA after his loss in August.
Jose Aldo is the first UFC Hall of Famer of 2023.
Aldo, a former multiple-time featherweight champion, will be enshrined in the UFC Hall of Fame this year. On Saturday, the news was made during the UFC 283 pay-per-view broadcast.
Over the years, Aldo gave fans spectacular performances with clean, ruthless wins over opponents like Cub Swanson, Urijah Faber and Chad Mendes, to name a few.
He also had notable victories over Renato Moicano and Jeremy Stephens during his post-title run.
In 2019, Aldo dropped to bantamweight and finished 3-3. His most recent match was in August at UFC 278 against Merab Dvalishvili, which he lost by decision.
He finished his MMA career with a 31-8 record.
The native of Manaus stopped competing in mixed martial arts in September and committed to making his boxing debut on February 10 in Rio de Janeiro. The fight’s weight class and opponent are still to be determined.
