Back in his kingdom. #UFC237

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 145-pound champion, Jose Aldo, has always been a pretty muscular featherweight, but then he went and opened his own burger joint and well, let’s just say there was a new reason they called him “Junior.”

Which also explains why he was dwarfed by Cris Cyborg.

But now Aldo, 32, seems to have refocused his commitment to mixed martial arts (MMA), coming into his Alexander Volkanovski fight looking better than ever. And if you’re wondering about those new anti-doping protocols, rest assured, any and all drug testers have likely been arrested and deported without prejudice.

The not-hospitalized Aldo (28-4) will have a chance to recapture some of his former glory en route to yet another title shot if he’s able to quell the uprising of Australian sensation Alexander Volkanovski. We’ll find out at the UFC 237 pay-per-view (PPV) event this Sat. night (May 11, 2019) inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
