Jose Aldo won a 5-round unanimous decision against Rob Font at UFC Fight Night on Saturday, December 4. The following day, the 35-year-old fighter decided to take in some NFL action. Aldo went into the fight ranked #5 and is now a legitimate UFC title contender.
At the game between the Raiders and the Washington Football Team, Jose totally lived it up. His seats were in the luxurious Wynn Field Club at Allegiant Stadium. He had an entourage of seven friends with him to check out the game.
While there, the group celebrated by popping some bottles. Aldo was also spotted dancing to Diplo, who hosted the game-day after party. It was a huge way to celebrate a huge victory.
With his win over Font, Aldo improved to a stellar 31-7-0. With his opponent ranked #4, Aldo is set up for a title opportunity. He may have to win an eliminator to get a shot at the gold, but he’s fine with that.
In his previous fight in the UFC 265 co-main event, Jose Aldo knocked off Pedro Munhoz. That fight also ended in a decision, but it only went three rounds as it wasn’t the main event. If he keeps it up, five-rounders will be the order of the day.
Jose Aldo is a two-time former UFC Featherweight Champion. He’s got the record for most successful and most consecutive defenses of that title. Now, he’s making noise in the Bantamweight division. You can check out the celebration below.
