“It’s time! @TheNotoriousMMA” – Jose Aldo
Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor first met back at UFC 194 in December of 2015.
Aldo entered that contest, which at the time was for his UFC featherweight title, riding a sensational eighteen-fight win streak.
McGregor was able to land a picture perfect left hand that sent the mixed martial arts legend crashing to the canvas.
Aldo has always wanted a chance at redemption against McGregor and now might be as good of a time as any for this rematch to happen.
Jose Aldo is coming off a first-round TKO victory over Jeremy Stephens which occurred this past July in Calgary.
Following his first stoppage win in nearly five years, Aldo announced his intentions to move up in weight and join the promotions 155-pound ranks.
Unfortunately for Aldo, Conor McGregor appears to have his sights set on an immediate rematch with current lightweight title holder Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“Mystic Mac” has gone 9-2 under the UFC banner, with his only two setbacks coming at the hands of Nate Diaz and the aforementioned Nurmagomedov.
