Watch: The 13 Dejected, Defeated Minutes Jose Aldo Spent Facing The Dressing Room Wall
By Donny Mahoney Updated

We all know by now that it only took Conor McGregor thirteen seconds defeat Jose Aldo. We all saw it. What we can now also see is what Jose Aldo did immediately after the fight, thanks to the UFC's ingenious and voyeuristic locker-room cam. What Aldo did, for thirteen excruciating minutes after arriving back in the dressing room, is one of the most agonising and engrossing things you'll ever witness as a sportsfan.

After being greeted by him glum entourage and his wife, Aldo sits himself on the ground, with a towel often over his face, and stares at the wall. Then he seems to start weeping. His people try to offer consolation, rubbing him, toweling him off, but it doesn't seem to do anything. He does not run for the showers, he does not hide. But he is clearly in shock. His incredible win streak is gone. His career is possibly over. He only took about 5 punches in the fight, but the humiliation of defeat is a far more cruel kind of pain, and with his back to camera, Jose Aldo just sits and cries. Eventually he lays down and sits up again.

At a point deep into the video, Dana White arrives with some UFC blazers. They greet the room and before they can speak to Aldo, the camera moves.
