Ahead of UFC 194, many fight fans are counting Jose Aldo out of his title unification bout with the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor on December 12th.
While Aldo may be the only featherweight champion in UFC history, he is still the underdog in many betting lines.
The champ spoke to Sportv to discuss why he’s more than okay being the underdog and making people easy money.
“Whoever wants to make money, all they have to do is bet on Aldo. It’ll be the easiest money they will ever make in their lives. Just like what happened to Ronda Rousey against Holly Holm. That’s not a problem for me. I don’t know who decides who gets to be the favorite. I focus on myself. I know what I can do and what I have to do to win.”
“I’m always trying to learn more and to be a good role model for people. I have to train harder than everyone else. That way I’ll never be in a comfort zone. I won’t believe I’m better than everyone else.”
The fight is arguably one of the biggest in UFC history.
When these two elite level fighters step in the Octagon on December 12th, who do you see winning?
