Current UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo is still not very happy with his employer or the UFC Lightweight Champion in Conor McGregor. Aldo recently spoke to Combate in an attempt to air his frustrations -- he would begin with the UFC.
"The UFC has been a mess for a while now,” Aldo said. “Not only for [myself], it's been happening way before that. It embarrassed featherweight and now embarrasses lightweight. Khabib Nurmagomedov signed two contracts to fight for the title and still hasn't [fought for the title]. We also have Demian Maia waiting at welterweight and Ronaldo Jacare is waiting for even longer than that [at middleweight]. It's cool for me, I was a dominant champion for a long time, but what about Jacare's situation? He's always winning and doesn't get his title shot. They tell him he'll fight for the title and he never does. And it seems he never will. It's a generalized mess.”
Aldo would also turn his attention to McGregor, who defeated Aldo in just thirteen seconds to win the UFC Featherweight Title at UFC 194.
"I knew I would be the champion and he knows what happened to me in that fight will never happen again,” Aldo said. “It was known I would be champion again so I don't have a problem with the way it happened. I've always said that having the belt around my waist is all that matters. No matter what, I'm the champion. I don't care about what his coach says. Who is his coach anyway? I don't know who he is. Or him. They're all pieces of sh*t."
Aldo was given the "undisputed" UFC Featherweight Championship after McGregor relinquished it.
