McGregor stellar win made him the UFC’s biggest star especially after Ronda Rousey ended her remarkable reign as the UFC women’s bantamweight champion.
Meanwhile, UFC President Dana White confirmed during an interview on Fox Sports 1 that McGregor would receive an immediate title shot should he elect to move up a division.
Jose Aldo’s translator has come under fire for misquoting the former UFC featherweight champion in the aftermath of his 13-second defeat to Conor McGregor at UFC 194.
It was Aldo’s first loss since 2005 and speaking in the octagon after the fight he said: “I think that we need the rematch, it was really not a fight so we need to get back in here”.
‘I understand why fighters have done that [before] because many fighters don’t fight as often as me, I stay busy. That means McGregor will be paid more per second than any other fighter in UFC history, notes Forbes. This Christmas was not taken from me, so I get to go home.
Jose Aldo insisted on having a rematch with Conor McGregor after their long-awaited fight on Sunday lasted for only 13 seconds with “The Notorious” Irish knocking out the Brazilian MMA legend with a left hook. “I’m only warming up”, McGregor said.
It’s a bad way to lose, especially considering that Aldo hadn’t tasted defeat in more than one decade, defending his 145- pound strap nine times in the process.
“There’s no way in hell that I’m vacating my belt”, McGregor said.
“Then I’ll go back up after a lightweight contender has emerged and take them out”. “If they offer me Croke Park or the football stadium, you’re damn right I’ll take it”.
Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh says we might see McGregor fight in both the lightweight and featherweight divisions in the next 7 months. We were actually having a laugh in the locker room before the fight.
The 27-year-old famously predicted he would floor Aldo within the opening round.
Commenting on his future plans, he said he intends to be a duel-weight champion.
