Jose Aldo Wants Rematch With Conor McGregor


Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor was last seen in the main event of UFC 229, suffering a fourth round submission loss to UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Although McGregor hinted at wanting an immediate rematch against Nurmagomedov, a familiar foe has thrown his name into the hat for a second chance at McGregor.

That foe is former UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo, who suffered a thirteen second knockout loss to McGregor in the main event of UFC 194.

Aldo would take to Instagram to issue the challenge to the Irishman:

“You have nowhere to run! It's time!”

The former UFC Featherweight Champion hasn’t competed since defeating Jeremy Stephens by first round TKO at UFC on Fox 30.

McGregor has yet to respond to the challenge made by Aldo, as his is awaiting any potential punishment for the brawl that took place at UFC 229.
