On August 20th, Conor McGregor will compete in his second fight since winning the UFC featherweight championship from Jose Aldo back at UFC 194. This fight, like the last one, will not be at featherweight.
This has led many to wonder whether or not McGregor will actually return to featherweight to defend his belt. With Jose Aldo currently the interim featherweight champ, he is hoping for a rematch with McGregor.
“You’ve got a repeat fight of Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar which is very similar (to their first fight),” Woodley said on his podcast The Morning Wood Show with Deez Nuts.
“They paid more attention to freaking Conor McGregor in the stands, standing up and attention-hunting, than they did the actual fight.
“These guys should have been fighting for the actual belt. He should be stripped of his belt.
“He’s fighting at 170 lbs for the second time. What other champion do you know that still maintains a belt and in his last fight, he lost?”
