This past weekend at Gamebred Boxing 4, MMA legend Jose Aldo competed in his second boxing fight. He competed in a six-round match against fellow UFC veteran Jeremy Stephens.
In an exciting and back-and-forth boxing battle, both MMA fighters faced off against one another. Although it was tight and some analysts gave the victory to Aldo, there was no clear winner in the end. Aldo received 58-56 from one referee, while 57-57 from the other two judges resulted in a majority draw.
Even though he didn't claim victory over Stephens, it was still a fun battle, and many other competitors came to applaud the performance of the former longtime UFC and WEC featherweight champion.
Aldo would be fighting for the second time; in his debut last February, he defeated a journeyman by decision.
Among those who reacted to Aldo’s bout was his former rival Conor McGregor. The Irishman took to Twitter to call for a rematch, but wanted it to happen in a different sport.
While the event promoter Jorge Masvidal said he was interested, Aldo quickly dismissed the idea when asked about a potential rematch.
“Conor, shut your f–king mouth,” Aldo responded through a translator. “We were supposed to fight (again) before in UFC. You ran, and now you still talk shit.”
