Max Holloway says ‘king’ Jose Aldo is still the GOAT despite suffering TKO loss at UFC 212

If you weren’t a Max Holloway fan after he knocked out Jose Aldo at UFC 212 last weekend (Sat., June 3, 2017) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to become the undisputed Featherweight champion -- all while collecting his eleventh straight win — perhaps his message to “Junior” will push you over the edge.

“Blessed” recently took to Instagram — much like Anderson Silva did — to pay homage to Aldo and all of the things he’s accomplished as the former 145-pound champion.

Classy. 

Aldo’s loss to Holloway is just the second of his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) career, with his previous one coming at the hands of Conor McGregor via 13-second knockout at UFC 194 two years ago. Prior to that, Aldo hadn’t tasted defeat in nearly a decade and defended his UFC Featherweight title nine times (a division record).

And yet, somehow some people think “Notorious” is the best 145-pound fighter of all time even though he never once defended his strap.
