Jose Aldo has made it known since UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor lost on Saturday night that he wants McGregor next for a shot to regain the featherweight title.

Aldo posted a message addressing fellow featherweight contender Frankie Edgar and his campaign to fight McGregor for the featherweight title.

Aldo posted the following statement captioned on his Instagram post on Sunday:

“@Frankieedgar ouvi dizer que vc estar pedindo uma luta pelo cinturão, eu respeito você como lutador, mas vamos aos fatos: você perdeu duas vezes para o Ben Henderson nos leves e já veio direto lutar comigo sem nunca ter disputado uma luta no peso pena. Fizemos uma grande luta, mas o resultado todo mundo sabe qual foi. Não dá para chegar e querer sentar na janela, espera um pouco, vc não tem direito nenhum. Mcgregor, em vez de fugir para a categoria de cima e falar merda de mim vc podia aproveitar esse tempo para ir para uma verdadeira academia treinar jiu-jitsu de verdade. Mas, sem problema. UFC 200, vamos tirar todas as dúvidas. Estou te esperando.
@FrankieEdgar I heard you were asking for a title shot. I respect you as a fighter, but let’s check the facts: you lost twice to Ben Henderson before coming to the 145 division and geting a title shot against me without having fought once in the featherweight division. We had a great fight, but everybody knows the result. You can’t come here now and cut the line, you have to wait because you don’t have any right to ask for a title shot yet. McGregor: instead of running up to a different weight division and talking shit about me, you could make your time valuable and go to a real gym to learn real jiu-jitsu. I’ll be ready for you at UFC 200, so we can leave no doubt.

What do you make of former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo’s case? If Conor McGregor does in fact defend his title at 145-pounds in his next fight, will he be fighting Jose Aldo in a rematch?
