Watch: Jose Aldo Plays Football In Exhibition Match With Roberto Carlos

Jose Aldo could be considering a change in career after his recent loss to Conor McGregor – yesterday the Brazilian legend took to the football field to put those lethal leg kicks to good use.

The former UFC featherweight champion played in the ‘Game Against Hunger’ charity match for ‘Time of Love’, as they took on ‘Time of Peace’.

Jose Aldo played alongside legendary footballer Roberto Carlos, and his side prevailed 8-4 over the Time of Peace side (which contained former Manchester City duo Robinho and Elano).

Aldo (seen wearing the number two shirt for the team in red) was made to look badly exposed in his full-back role for the opposing side’s first goal, but nothing he did in this game could match his absolute embarrassment of Barcelona superstar Neymar with a rainbow flick last year.

Aldo favours his right leg while fighting in the Octagon, making him a natural fit for the right side of the pitch.

HD highlights of the game itself can be seen on SporTV’s official website.
