Jose Aldo’s Coach: “We Lost A Battle, But War Continues”

Muitos falam, poucos sabem . Essa é a real, os Brasileiros se acostumaram a idolatrar pilantras e crucificar heróis, isso ja é quase cultural, quem era pra nos apoiar, aponta o dedo, critica e julga sem ao menos ter propriedade pra falar do assunto. Nos acostumamos a lutar contra os rivais e a receber críticas dos que eram pra ser nossos aliados. Ontem mais uma vez nosso campeão @josealdojunioroficial fez a sua parte, lutou bravamente contra um adversário muito duro que foi superior na Luta e venceu, assim como ele fez por muitos anos e ainda tem condições de fazer, o esporte é assim, nada e nem ninguém apagará sua história de vida e na luta. Todos nós amigos e companheiros de equipe estamos orgulhosos por tudo que você já nos proporcionou e ainda vai nos proporcionar , nada mudou, perdemos uma batalha, mas A GUERRA CONTINUA.

Emerson Vieira, the kickboxing coach for Jose Aldo, was at UFC 218 in the corner of the former featherweight champion when he lost to Max Holloway.

And Vieira has decided to speak out in regards to those criticizing Aldo for his performance – including his own supporters.

“Many talk, few know,” Vieira wrote. “This is the truth, Brazilians are used to idolizing crooks and crucifying heroes. It’s almost cultural. Who should be supporting us is pointing fingers, criticizing and judging without having any knowledge to talk about the topic. We’re used to fighting rivals and receive critics from the ones who were supposed be on our side.

“(Saturday), our champion Jose Aldo did his part, fought bravely against a really tough opponent, who was superior in the fight and won, like [Aldo] did for many years and still has what it takes to do. Sports are like this, nothing and no one will erase your story in life and in fighting. Your friends and teammates are proud of everything you’ve already done and will still do. Nothing changed. We lost a battle, but war continues.”

Aldo, who ruled the 145-pound division for several years, has won just once in his last four fights around two losses to Holloway and a defeat at the hands of Conor McGregor.
