Free fight: Jose Aldo defends his featherweight title with TKO of ‘Korean Zombie’ at UFC 163

Many factors were responsible for the creation of the legend of Jose Aldo. And one of those key factors were his title defenses.

Aldo (31-8 MMA, 13-7 UFC), who retired from MMA last week, left the sport as the most successful UFC featherweight champion to date. The Brazilian racked up seven title defenses during his run in the promotion, more than any other 145-pound champion in UFC history.

Back at UFC 163 in 2013, Aldo improved his winning streak to 16 in a row by stopping Chan Sung Jung in Rio De Janeiro. It was another dominant showing by the “King of Rio.”
