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.


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.
