UFC feather weight champion Jose Aldo adopted Rio de Janeiro as a home when he started fighting. After he beat Chad Mendes to defend the belt, they adopted him right back.
Immediately after the fight was stopped, Aldo ran out of the cage and into the crowd. The raucous crowd swarmed around him, all hoping to touch their triumphant fighter. The featherweight was lost among the bodies until he emerged on a cornerman's shoulders and finally made it back to the cage.
