In a performance that quite frankly no one saw coming, Jose Aldo looked like his old self at the ripe old age of 35 and is now on pace for some fun matchmaking in 2022.

In what was the most competitive 50-45 scored bout that we may have ever seen because for as good as Jose Aldo looked, Rob Font looked just as tough. Font was looking good the first half of the first round but it was almost as if Aldo saw enough and was able to start landing the counters to his straights and jabs.

A big thing that Aldo used to his advantage was the famous leg kicks he used to throw with reckless abandon. Aldo also started utilizing Font leaving his body wide open for hooks as well, despite him bruising up Font’s face it seemed to be his body and legs that failed him in the end.

Aldo landed a combination at the end of round five that almost had referee Keith Peterson almost ready to start the fight but Font was able to find a leg and fend off a fight finishing flurry from the ‘King of Rio’. 

This will be one of those fights that see’s two winners because as mentioned the toughness that Font displayed gets him a win but the win that Aldo earned tonight may have him on the doorstep of another title shot. Post-fight Aldo called for a fight with former bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw which is a fight that everyone can be on board with. 

The timeline may match up perfectly for that while Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling handle their business.
