UFC Fight Night 183 results: Jose Aldo snaps skid with decision over Marlon Vera

“The King of Rio” still has it.

On Saturday at UFC Fight Night 183, Jose Aldo defeated Marlon Vera by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28). The bantamweight bout was the UFC Fight Night 183 co-main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It streamed on ESPN+.

While Vera (18-7-1 MMA, 10-6 UFC) had his moments in Round 2, the middle round was bookended by two fairly dominant Aldo (29-7 MMA, 11-6 UFC) frames. In Round 1, Aldo showed off his technical striking with brutal body shots and leg kicks – showing flashes of the brilliances of his prime self.

In the final round, however, Aldo showed off his offensive jiu-jitsu skills – something he’s rarely displayed in recent fights.

With the victory, Aldo snapped a three-fight losing skid. Despite a stretch of misfortune that saw him lose to Petr Yan, Marlon Moraes and Alexander Volkanovski, Aldo has gone 3-3 in his most recent six fights.

As for Vera, the loss is his second in three fights. Prior to his TKO win over Sean O’Malley in July, Vera lost a unanimous decision to Song Yadong in May.
