UFC Fighter Dives Into The Crowd After Epic TKO Win In Brazil (And Conor McGregor Is Impressed)

Jose Aldo Goes 'Full Khabib' (But In A Nice Way)

The memories of UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov diving into the crowd after defeating Conor McGregor still leave a bitter taste, so it was nice to see a fighter jumping into the crowd for the right reasons on Saturday night.

Brazilian legend Jose Also is entering the final year of his MMA career after announcing 2019 would be his last as a professional fighter and he duly delivered in front of his home crowd at UFC Fortaleza in Brazil.

His bout was the headline act on Saturday night and he battered the rising star Renato Moicano to seal a second-round technical knockout.

The 32-year-old rolled back the years to produce a hugely impressive display to seal victory before he ran across the Octagon, leapt over the cage and celebrated with his fellow countrymen.

Aldo, whose career now stands at 28-4 in terms of win-loss, inflicted only a second loss of Moicano's career and it was a win that clearly meant a lot after several critics had questioned whether he still had the fire in the belly.

There was even talk of another potential clash with Conor McGregor, who ended Aldo's reign at the top of the 145lbs division in December 2015 when he knocked Aldo out inside 15 seconds.

McGregor Tweeted last night:

What an amazing atmosphere at UFC Brazil tonight.
I would LOVE to compete there for all the passionate Brazilian fans at some stage of my career.
I was so close to securing a bout in Rio last year. It was essentially a done deal.
Maybe next time.
Ui Vai Morrer!!!! I’m still here.

In the meantime, you can watch the impressive performance from Aldo and his celebrations in the Twitter video below:
