UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo gave his hometown fans exactly what they wanted Saturday night — a win.
The Brazilian defeated Chan Sung Jung (“The Korean Zombie”) with a fourth-round TKO to retain his title at UFC 163, which was held at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
The end of the match came at 2:00 in the fourth round after The Korean Zombie suffered what appeared to be a separated right shoulder. Aldo then took advantage of the injury and scored the victory.
