"The King of Rio" is back! Jose Aldo will return to the UFC octagon on May 4th, 2024, at UFC 301, which will go down in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. His opponent will be the #14 ranked Jonathan Martinez, who is riding a six-fight winning streak, per AG Fight.

Jose Aldo retired nearly two years ago following his unanimous decision loss to Merab Dvalishvili at UFC 278. Since then, he's competed in three boxing matches, going 2-0-1 in the sport, including a fight against fellow UFC veteran Jeremy Stephens.
