In the Featherweight Championship bout of UFC 163, Jose Aldo retained his title with a 4th round TKO of “Korean Zombie” .
Jose Aldo stayed away from his trademark kicking style and waited out his opponent. In the middle of the 4th round, the two fighters exchanged a combination of punches at the center of the ring. Korean Zombie landed an overhand right to the back of the champion’s head, that separated his own shoulder. Aldo saw this, and quickly went on the attack as the Zombie had to defend against his shoulder.
Check out the TKO after the jump.
