As an accomplished devotee to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, New York commodities trader Sean Kemery is an avid fan of the MMA and UFC. Sean Kemery follows the career of Jose Aldo, a young Brazilian fighter who recently lost his title of UFC featherweight champion.
At UFC 194 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in December 2015, Jose Aldo was forced to hand over his title to opponent Conor McGregor, “The Notorious.” The 13-second fight was a record for fastest knockout in a title fight, beating the previous record of 14 seconds held by Ronda Rousey. In what Aldo has dubbed a fluke, within the first few seconds of the match, McGregor responded to Aldo’s right hand with a straight left to the chin which drove him to the mat.
The loss was Aldo’s first since 2005 and broke an 18 fight winning streak. It was the first time Aldo has been knocked out.
Jose Aldo is known as one of the greatest fighters from Brazil. He is so popular that a movie about his rags-to-riches life is currently in the works. Born into poverty in Manaus, Brazil, Aldo eventually moved to Rio de Janeiro where he trained. He made his debut in 2004 and won his first UFC title in 2010.

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has filed legal action against ESPN and reporter Adam Schefter for the public release of a portion of Pierre-Paul’s medical records from last summer.
Pierre-Paul’s lawyers assert that Schefter unlawfully obtained the defensive end’s records following a July 4 fireworks accident last year, which revealed the amputation of one finger and a portion of the thumb. Schefter posted images of Pierre-Paul’s medical chart to his Twitter account, which boasts more than 4 million followers.
According to The Washington Times, the suit alleges that Schefter violated Florida statute 456.057, which states that medical records cannot be obtained or talked about with individuals not involved in the patient’s care.
Pierre-Paul is seeking more than $15,000 in damages.
