Royce Gracie is one of the legends of MMA, and he's also a Brazilian like the former featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Here's the reaction Gracie had to Conor McGregor's KO of Aldo in its entirety...

There were multiple bits that will certainly put things in perspective for Jose Aldo. One of the most important was the following sentiment, which I agree with:

"McGregor said what he was going to do, and he did it. He did it. Jose Aldo's been a champion for 10 years. He'll be back, he'll be back."

Here was the direct advice he had for Aldo:

"Go back to training camp, and re-do it again without the pressure of being champion. When you're the champion you have a lot of pressure man, to defend for ten years. Now he's got something to chase."
