People seem to be forgetting just how lethal Conor McGregor’s UFC 194 opponent is…
Conor McGregor has stated himself that no one has risen up through the UFC rankings in as little time as he has. And that is very true. However, what cannot be dismissed is just how ferociously dangerous his next opponent is.
Jose Aldo is currently No 1 in the UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings and has been the UFC Featherweight champion since 2010. In the time since, the Brazilian fighter has not lost a single fight.
There is no doubting McGregor’s incredible talent. However, it does seem strange that he is already being ranked as the bookies’ favourite for the UFC 194 clash given the fact that Chad Mendes seems to be the only opponent of real note that he has defeated.
Aldo hasn’t lost a fight in over a decade, and without any real knowledge of MMA, one need only look at the video below to understand that the December 12th bout will undeniably be McGregor’s biggest test to date.
Speaking on the Jimmy Kimmel show last night, the Notorious Irishman proclaimed that he had nothing to fear at UFC 194 and that he planned to defeat the Brazilian in the first round. Based on the video below, we find that very hard to believe.
