Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor took aim at former rival Jose Aldo on Wednesday, accusing the Brazilian of being back on the sauce.
The UFC had shared a photo of the Brazilian on their official Instagram page, which resulted in the following comment from ‘Mystic Mac’.
“Back on the sauce.” – Conor McGregor
McGregor would later delete the comment from social media, but not before it was picked up by members of the MMA Community.
Jose Aldo is set to return to the octagon at this weekend’s UFC 237 event in Rio, against perennial division contender Alexander Volkanovski.
Aldo has returned to form in his two most recent octagon appearances, scoring stoppage wins over Jeremy Stephens and Renato Moicano in that time.
Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo met inside the octagon way back at UFC 194, with the Irishman emerging victorious by way of knockout in just 13-seconds.
It is expected that the Irish superstar will return to the octagon this summer. Potential opponents for Conor McGregor include Donald Cerrone, Nate Diaz, Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson.
While ‘Mystic Mac’ still seems to be fixated on receiving an immediate rematch with ‘The Eagle’, it appears that current UFC interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier will be the next man to challenge the undefeated Russian, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
