This will continually be his house: Dana White pays tribute to Jose Aldo

Dana White says that Jose Aldo has made the sort of indelible effect on mixed fighting techinques that wont soon be forgotten.

The Brazilian legend confirmed his retirement from the activity this week after an iconic career where he broke new ground for lighter-weight fighters in the halcyon days of the activity once the UFC didnt have even a lightweight division, aside from featherweight or bantamweight etc. His set you back gold in both WEC and UFC, where he forged an extraordinary run of 25 wins against just one single defeat before losing his UFC title to Conor McGregor in late 2015, was the stuff of legend, and his anti-wrestling design of striking became hugely influential to legions of fighters who came after him.

And talking with the media, including TheMacLife, echoed the praise which includes been sent Aldos way since he opted to hold up the 4oz gloves.

We love him, White said. This can continually be his house. I told him, Should anyone ever need anything here or you ever desire to go to a meeting, that is always your home. This can be a guy that, from the WEC to the UFC, helped build the activity, this brand and Brazil for all of us.

So we love him, and we always will. Hes made an excellent life for himself down there, too, and done some very nice things and made big money, and I couldnt be happier for him and his family.

White added that of all scenes he witnessed from Aldo over time, once shines from the others: I believe the fight was in Rio when he jumped from the octagon and jumped in to the crowd, and the crowd was carrying him around, and the area was going nuts. Its among my favourite Jose Aldo moments.
