Ladies and gentlemen, UFC interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor has opened as the 2-1 favorite over champion Jose Aldo.
They were supposed to fight at UFC 189, instead Aldo pulled out with a rib injury and McGregor took on Chad Mendes for the interim strap. McGregor survived and early onslaught of ground and pound to finish Mendes in the second round via TKO.
Looks like that win did a lot for McGregor. A few weeks ago BJPENN.COM. held a poll and it was Conor McGregor who came out on top over Aldo when we asked you all who would win.
According to betting site Bovada, McGregor has opened as the favorite over the Brazilian champ and a fighter many have called one of the pond for pound best.
- Conor McGregor -190
- Jose Aldo +155
