One mistake and 13 seconds is all it took for Jose Aldo’s career come to a screeching halt. Prior to this weekend, Aldo was ranked by the UFC as the number one pound-for-pound fighter, had gone undefeated for over ten years and was on an 18-fight win streak. That all came to an end when Conor McGregor connected with a left that hook that led to the knockout of Aldo at UFC 194.
“When Aldo came in with the straight, Conor stepped back. Then, to close the distance, Aldo came at him with the overhand, but Conor threw his left hook which got Aldo in the chin. Aldo’s punch hit him in the head, some people said it even cut Conor, but Conor hit him in the chin, so Aldo fell.”
“Aldo wasn’t nervous, though. None of Conor’s shenanigans got to him. We were actually having a laugh in the locker room before the fight. That happened once and it will not happen again.”
Pederneiras said they are looking to get the rematch, but have not confirmed anything yet.
“Aldo is very sad. He’s hoping to get an immediate rematch. It’s too soon so say anything, but I have spoken to Dana and I will call him so we can talk.”
