Jose Aldo’s next opponent will likely be Conor McGregor, should ‘Notorious’ defeat Dennis Siver when the pair meet in January at UFC Fight Night Boston.
McGregor, who did several appearances prior to UFC 179 while in Brazil, was cageside for the action last night, and was even called out by Jose Aldo after his victory over Chad Mendes (Watch the call-out HERE).
Watch the highlights from the bout HERE.
Aldo continued to call-out McGregor in the post-fight press conference, but continued to do so without using his name.
“He’s a guy who just talks. He hasn’t fought anyone as tough as us. So to get here right now and talk, I’ve heard that a lot. Chael Sonnen did that a lot in his weight class, and now he’s lost, so he can talk as much as he wants.”
“We’re grounded, we have our feet on the ground. Chad and I, we know what the weight class is like. We’re athletes, we have to respect each other, we know that in there we make it happen, and that’s what we wanted to say.”
McGregor of course, responded with a toast to both men, and a warning that “the king is coming” (See that HERE).
