Holloway ended Aldo’s second reign as featherweight champ in highlight reel fashion on Saturday, as he put away the Brazilian star with punches in round three. Since the defeat was Aldo’s second in three fights, some observers have been arguing that the former champ is no longer the greatest featherweight of all time.
But, as you can see by reading the comments below, Holloway doesn’t see it that way at all.
Losing is part of this fight game. Saturday night takes nothing away from his legacy. This is a guy who would show up to his gym sometimes without eating in the last day because he was so damn poor. This is a guy who built the 45 division and became king. This is a guy who found motivation to keep earning what he already had. He defended his throne. For a decade. For honor. For his team. For his countrymen. This is a guy who didn't start at pole position in this world and look at what he achieved. Brazil needs to celebrate that man. Acai with powered milk and cashews for everyone. He's a GOAT, and his story will always be an inspiration to me and people of Hawaii. Obrigado, Ze @josealdojunioroficial Obrigado.
