Conor McGregor shut the lights out early on Aldo at UFC 194. It took just 13 seconds for McGregor to land a punch flush on Aldo’s chin that dropped the former pound-for-pound king to the mat and finished it off with brutal hammerfists.
Aldo says that it was a lucky punch and that it will never happen again and wants his chance to prove that to the world.
Aldo posted a photo to his Instagram account recently in the traditional jiu-jitsu gi. Could this be a hint at the jiu-jitsu black belt’s strategy for a rematch with McGregor after seeing fellow black belt Nate Diaz submit McGregor by rear-naked choke?
While no announcement has been made from the UFC on who McGregor will be fighting next, it is a close race between Aldo and former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. Edgar has been on the cusp of getting his second chance at the featherweight title and wants nothing more than to take it from McGregor.
Who do you want to see Conor McGregor make his first title defense against? Should Aldo get the fight as he was undefeated for 10 years and the promotion’s sole featherweight champion prior to the fight with McGregor? Or does Edgar deserve the shot over Aldo?
