It seems like it has been forever since “The Notorious” Conor McGregor stopped former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in just 13-seconds at UFC 194 to win the title. Since then, McGregor has gone on to bigger and better things while Aldo has sort of hit a downward spiral.

Aldo, for one, demanded an immediate rematch but UFC President Dana White just didn’t want to give it to him. Instead, McGregor went to Rafael Dos Anjos who got injured and was replaced by Nate Diaz.


Conor McGregor Stopped Jose Aldo In 13-Seconds At UFC 194

McGregor lost the first Diaz fight, so a rematch was inevitable. McGregor won and everybody knows how that went. After the Diaz rematch however, a lot of people wondered whether or not McGregor would return to featherweight for a rematch against Aldo.

McGregor ended up taking a bout against UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 and that’s where we are at right now. Aldo however, was promised another crack at McGregor by White or if that didn’t pan out, that McGregor would be forced to relinquish his featherweight belt.

Aldo, the UFC interim featherweight champion, would then be upgraded to regular champion. White however allowed McGregor to keep his title, and this was the last straw for Aldo. Aldo, tired of being disappointed by broken promises, demanded to be released from the UFC.

Aldo went public with his distaste for the UFC and for MMA altogether. He is adamant that he wants to retire from the sport that made him famous and try his hand at another sport.

Many fans wanted to know just what McGregor thought about the whole thing. In a video you will see below, McGregor shares what he thinks about Aldo and where he’s at with his career.

McGregor Feels Aldo Has Just Found His Way Out

“I don’t think [Aldo] wants the rematch, I think he’s happy with this feud — and this ‘get out’ clause,” said McGregor.

McGregor obviously feels Aldo is trying to scurry away from MMA after getting beat so badly.

Can’t imagine what this must be like for Aldo fans who have to hear this, but for McGregor fans and a lot of other people, it makes sense. Doesn’t it? What do you think?
