UFC Champ Aldo Denies McGregor Slapping Incident



Early in the week Dana White talked about an incident that occurred between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo during the UFC 189 World Tour. White said McGregor slapped Aldo on the back and Aldo went crazy.

According to the featherweight champ himself, that might not be exactly what happened.

“We went to a studio early in the morning for a live show, and we already stared at each other as soon as (McGregor) arrived. I was sitting in the couch with Dana, and he sit behind me. He pulled my jacket, so I immediately stood up. Dana turned, separated us and apologized. There was no slap. He pulled my jacket. That’s what happened. It looks like Dana said that he slapped me, but he didn’t even see it.”
