Ever since his emphatic loss at the hands of Conor McGregor at UFC 194, Jose Aldo hasn’t really seemed capable of moving on from the Irishman.
Aldo had been undefeated for over a decade before Conor McGregor sent him plummeting to the canvas 13 seconds into their featherweight title bout at UFC 194.
Since then, McGregor has become the lightweight champion, while Jose Aldo has pulled off a number of stunts in an effort to secure a rematch with the SBG man. Last year alone, he won the interim featherweight title, retired, un-retired and was once again named the undisputed 145 lbs champion after McGregor was stripped.
Last month Aldo stated that, similar to McGregor, he would like to pursue a career in boxing while he was also shortly in line for an interim lightweight title fight. That bout never materialized and Aldo now looks likely to defend his featherweight title against Max Holloway in the coming months. However, that hasn’t stopped the Brazilian from speaking about the Irishman.
Speaking at a Q&A event last Friday, Aldo criticized McGregor’s recent pursuit of a super-fight with Floyd Mayweather stating that the Irishman’s contract would prevent the bout from ever taking place.
“First of all, we don’t know if it will happen or not,” said Aldo.
“There are a lot of things involved, mainly McGregor has a contract to follow so it’s hard to happen.”
Pushed on the outcome of the bout should it actually take place, Aldo stated that the ‘Notorious’ Irishman wouldn’t have a chance against the undefeated boxer.
“If it happens, I don’t think he [McGregor] has a chance.I don’t see a result different than a win for Mayweather.”
