The president of the UFC, Dana White has revealed her favorite moment of the recently concluded career of legendary former featherweight king Jose Aldo.

Although he often refrains from label a single moment in the career of a fighter who retires as his favorite, White had something in mind for the former featherweight champion..

“Those are always hard for me, but yeah, I actually do it with him,” White said. “I think that time, I think that the fight was in Rio, when he jumped out of the octagon and jumped into the publicand the crowd carried him on wings. The place went crazy. One of my favorite moments of José Aldo… security doesn’t love it, but I do.”

The moment dates back to 2012, when Aldo put his 145-pound gold on the line at UFC 142 in front of his crowd in Rio de Janeiro. Facing Chad Mendes, the Brazilian star secured a first-round knockout after landing a knee with a second to go in the round.
