Ahead of tonight’s UFC 218 main event title fight against Max Holloway, Jose Aldo and his translator have gone viral for this post weigh ins interview, where though translation, Aldo explained his hard fought weight cut. During the interview (replay above), the former UFC champion’s translator was force to make a reference to anal sex twice, and it was awkward.
This all happened because when Jose hit the scales as part of yesterday’s official weigh ins event, he looked awful, even missing his first attempt on the scales by a pound.
Looking almost sickly, Aldo then took off his shorts, and made championship weight.
Following the incident, Aldo hit the backstage media and got asked about his hard weight cut.
The former champion responded in his native Brazilian tongue, and his translator reluctantly repeated his words, stating, “I know I was on the right weight. I like to play that, just to f*ck the grave digger’s ass.”
The shocked reporter, didn’t know how to take that, so he made the mistake of asking for clarification, to which the translator then said, “He likes to pretend he’s dead, just to f*ck the gravedigger straight up in the ass”
These comments, went viral, and rightfully so, because it’s hilarious and awkward.
Tonight’s UFC 218 was originally scheduled to feature a Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar main event, However, with two weeks on the clock, Edgar pulled out with an injury, making way for Jose Aldo to secure a rematch for the belt he once held.
The highly anticipated event goes down from the Little Caesars arena in Detroit, Michigan. The night’s main card airs live on pay-per-view.
Here’s the replay of Aldo’s weigh-in for those who missed it.
