The potential boxing match between UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn’t even close to happening at this point in time. However, that hasn’t stopped people from the MMA and boxing world from making their picks on who would win a bout between the two.
UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo is now on that list, as he makes a pick for the hypothetical boxing match.
"Mayweather has the experience of competing for years in the sport of boxing, so I don’t see how,” Aldo said at an online Q&A. "Of course, it's a fight, but it’s hard for us MMA fighters to go to a different world challenging one of the best in the history. I don’t see a result different than a win for Mayweather."
Aldo is also on the side that the potential dream fight may never come to fruition.
"First of all, we don’t know if it will happen or not,” Aldo said, "there are a lot of things involved, mainly McGregor has a contract to follow so it’s hard to happen, but if it happens, I don’t think he has a chance."
Aldo hasn’t competed since UFC 200 in July 2016, where he defeated former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar to win the UFC Interim Featherweight Title.
