Jose Aldo’s new “tattoo” had MMA fans confused as the piece literally disappeared during the fight. After his unanimous decision victory over Marlon Chito Vera, the MMA veteran explained that the logo wasn’t a tattoo but a sticker to honor his countrymen.

The truth, I didn’t know if I needed permission because it’s the Navy Seals, and I put it there in the hotel before I came here, and I warmed up for three hours without a shirt. Nobody told me anything. I don’t think it’s a problem because it doesn’t have any sponsor information. If I caused any problems, I apologize.
After losing three in a row it’s good to see Aldo back in the win column. Jose previous losing streak to Yan, Moares, and Volkanovski shouldn’t be anything to be ashamed of as that list is as good as it gets in the division. Although he lost to prime competition, Aldo proved he is no where near retirement after running through Chito Vera. I think Aldo vs Dillashaw is the perfect match up for both fighters. Dillashaw is coming off of a 2 year suspension and Jose moving up in the division. This fight just makes sense.
