Queria agradecer a todos que estavam e torceram na arena e nas suas casas muito obrigado, agradecer a toda minha equipe @dede_pederneiras @mabogea @guidarellif os treinadores @emersonfalcaovieira @aleksandrofg @piratiev_oficial @rafaelviniciusbertho me colocaram como nunca estive antes! Mas nunca lutei tão mal na minha vida sem desculpas nenhuma porque não sou disso, mas sei da minha capacidade e talento e não posso fazer isso, sem tirar os méritos do meu adversário que fez a luta dele mas fico triste comigo mesmo e transfiro tudo em mim mesmo porque deixei acontecer e não fiz a luta que deveria fazer. Já passou e vamos pra próxima!------

Here is a translation of what Aldo wrote, provided by Google Translate:

“I would like to thank everyone who was there and thanked everyone in the arena and in their homes thank you very much, thank all my team @dede_pederneiras @mabogea @guidarellif the trainers @emersonfalcaovieira @aleksandrofg @piratiev_oficial @rafaelviniciusbertho put me like I've never been before! But I have never fought so badly in my life without excuses because I am not of this, but I know of my ability and talent and I can not do it, without taking the merits of my opponent who made his fight but I am sad with myself and I transfer everything in myself because I let it happen and I did not do the fight I was supposed to do. It's over and let's move on!”

Aldo has one more fight left before retiring, it is unknown at this time as to when that bout will happen or whom it will come against.
