Former UFC featherweight champion José Aldo celebrated his first TKO win since 2013 in the most fitting way imaginable – a Fortnite dance.
The most successful featherweight fighter in history returned to the winner’s circle with an impressive finish against Jeremy Stephens in the co-main event of the UFC on Fox: Alvarez vs. Poirier 2 event.
Aldo survived some punishment from Stephens in the early stages of round 1 before dropping him with a stunning liver shot and finishing him off with punches, casing the referee to step in.

The incredibly emotional Brazilian took a while to compose himself after fight was stopped but eventually managed to calm down enough to celebrate with Fortnite’s famous “Take The L” dance!
Fortnite has taken the world by storm in 2018 and everyone, from Premier League footballers to NFL and NBA stars, seems to be getting in on the action.

Aldo, who was coming off of back-to-back losses at the hands of Max Holloway and the lowest period in his career, appears to be just one of many sport legends around the world that is using the popular battle royale game to relax in his spare time.
Aldo now holds a professional record of 27-4 and has put himself right back in the picture for a potential run at reclaiming a title that he held from the formation of the UFC’s featherweight division right up until his knockout loss to Conor McGregor in 2015.
