Video: Jose Aldo jumps into Rio crowd to celebrate UFC 142 win over Chad Mendes

It wasn't the first time that Jose Aldo stormed the stands after a big mixed martial arts (MMA) victory, but it might be his last after the chaotic scene it caused at UFC 142 inside the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Jan. 14, 2012.

No one was reportedly injured when "Scarface" exited the Octagon with a quickness to celebrate his knockout win over Chad Mendes, appearing to be a case of no harm, no foul. In fact, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) today released the video of his celebration on YouTube.

Here is the video description:

An entire nation unites around a stellar victory. Witness the incredible celebration in Rio as Jose Aldo holds onto his featherweight title.

Not really sure the promotion should condone the behavior, but it certainly was a pretty cool departure from the typical backflip or cage climb. Definitely worth another watch.
