Jose Aldo is among the most prominent combat sports stars from Brazil. The professional mixed martial artist and boxer has a long career in mixed martial arts that spans almost two decades and has headlined eight pay-per-views while competing in the elite professional mixed martial arts promotion, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).


The former UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, made his professional debut in mixed martial arts on August 10, 2004, against Mario Bigola at Eco Fight Championship 1 in Macapa, Brazil. Aldo made quick work of Bigola with a first-round knockout, courtesy of a devastating head kick, and took off with an aggressive win to start his professional career. He compiled an impressive professional record of 16 wins and 1 loss before facing Mike Brown at WEC 44 on November 18, 2009, for the WEC featherweight championship. Aldo defeated brown by second-round TKO and won the title.


Jose Aldo defended his WEC featherweight title once on September 30, 2010, before World Extreme Cage Fighting was merged with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Aldo, like other fighters of the WEC, was transferred to the UFC and he was crowned as the inaugural featherweight champion in the promotion. He has since then competed regularly on the UFC’s roster and currently competes in the bantamweight division of the professional mixed martial arts giant.


Jose Aldo announced his retirement from professional mixed martial arts on September 18, 2022, with one fight remaining in his UFC contract. He is returning to the octagon by coming out of retirement to take on Jonathan Martinez at UFC 301 on May 4, 2024.
