Brazilian MMA fans brutally mock Ex-UFC star Jose Aldo for aiding former president Jair Bolsonaro

Jose Aldo decided to hand off his gloves after losing to Merab Dvalishvili by a unanimous decision on UFC 278. The Brazillian legend might not have received the most heroic sendoff but what he managed to achieve in his nearly 14-year-long professional MMA career is quite significant. Unfortunately, his legacy might be slightly tainted following his recent actions.

Jair Bolsonaro was the last president of Brazil before Lula Da Silva came into power. Jair was one of the most controversial presidents in the history of Brazil and many criticized him heavily for his actions, words, and policies. Even still he nearly beat Lula and only lost after further elections were held. After this, he came to Florida where he is reportedly staying with UFC veteran Jose Aldo.

How fans reacted!

Jose was already quite close with the former president. However, the two walked different paths, and fans moved on from the matter. But now that the recent news of the former president’s move to Florida has surfaced, fans have become furious.

One fan wrote, ‘José Aldo, after our information, in addition to deleting his personal number, he also deactivated the comments on his social networks. Too much  for someone who claims to be a fighter, doesn’t it support?’

Another wrote,’ SIT DOWN SO YOU DON’T FALL ON YOUR BACK. José Aldo’s wife and himself are the owners of the mansion (4 million reais guaranteed) where Bolsonaro is staying, in Orlando (USA). Forum magazine found that the owner received from the govt. Brazilian emergency aid in the Pandemic.’

Some are also trying to link the fighter to corruption cases, ‘The wife of fighter José Aldo, who we published that was traveling with paid tickets with d1nhe1r0 publ1c0, Viviane Pereira de Oliveira, received R$3,900 in Emergency Aid, which was to be allocated to some low-income family during the pandemic.’

One user even tried to accuse the veteran of plotting an insurrection.

While we don’t endorse any ‘guilty by association’ type sentiments, hopefully, all parties involved can come to a peaceful understanding.
