Jose Aldo Retires From UFC
One of the greatest fighters in the history of the sport is reportedly retiring from mixed martial arts.
According to Brazilian MMA news organization Combate, Jose Aldo has reached a deal with the UFC that allows him to walk away from his current contract, which had one fight left. With “Scarface” released by the organization, he’s reportedly free to try his hand at other combat sports like boxing or grappling.
Aldo’s name was removed from the UFC rankings and roster earlier today, seemingly confirming this news. The move comes on the heels of a recent interview with Aldo’s longtime coach, Andre Pederneiras, who suggested he should consider retirement.
