Former UFC champion José Aldo (28-7) commented on today’s defeat against Petr Yan (15-1).
“Defeats are part of the sport, part of my life. Who does not fight does not lose.
I did my best in combat and in training, on a diet even during the pandemic, I fought for what I really wanted, but unfortunately, I failed.
Nobody in the world wanted to get this belt more than me, I wanted to make history, but my opponent was more successful, he has his strengths.
People think they live in a perfect world and don’t understand that defeat is no reason to humiliate someone. Empathy is the ability to put yourself in the shoes of someone else. I will come back and be much stronger than I am now,” Aldo wrote at Instagram.
