Next Wednesday, José Aldo will attend the party announcing the movie about his life. And according to the “Gente Boa” column in “O Globo” newspaper, the producers have already cast the actor to play the Manaus native who arrived in Rio de Janeiro without a penny to his name, only to become UFC champion. Malvino Salvador will play Aldo in the cinema.
It’s not the first time the actor, currently in primetime telanovela “Fina Estampa”, plays the part of a fighter. Malvino practices boxing, getting his start in Rio de Janeiro under Coach Raff Giglio. He has been a martial arts lover ever since.
