Jose Aldo Didn't Even Watch UFC 189, But He's Up For A Fight In Dublin

Jose Aldo Didn't Even Watch UFC 189, But He's Up For A Fight In Dublin

Jose Aldo was not impressed with Conor McGregor's victory over Chad Mendes at UFC 189, because he didn't even watch it.

The injured UFC featherweight champion was speaking to the media from his training center at Nova Uniao today and he explained that if one of his pals or teammates are not involved, then he's not really into the UFC:

It’s funny. When my friends aren’t fighting, I don’t even watch it. ‘Dede’ talked to me about it, said it’s cool, that it was a good fight for us. He saw his game, that Chad was winning while he had gas, and that they shouldn’t have stopped the fight. But when I’m not fighting, I don’t read or watch anything.

That they shouldn't have stopped the fight? Maybe you should watch it yourself Jose, because your coach seemed to have watched a different fight to the rest of us.


Also interesting was Aldo's response when asked about the possibility of a title unification bout in Dublin, despite the obvious advantage that such a location would hand McGregor:

It would be great, I don’t see any problem with that. They can say whatever they want. If they don’t say it in Portuguese, I won’t understand a word so I don’t care. I’m anxious to fight already.

Get ready, I’m coming. He can say whatever he wants, but his weapons are nowhere near what I’m showing him.

Make it happen Dana!

An Aldo v McGregor unification fight in Croke Park before the end of the year? Just thinking about that sends shivers down the spine. The atmosphere would be like nothing we've ever seen before, although that seems to be said every time Conor fights these days.
