McGregor was so excited about UFC on ESPN+ 2 that he took to Twitter to express his wish to fight in Brazil:

“What an amazing atmosphere at UFC Brazil tonight. I would LOVE to compete there for all the passionate Brazilian fans at some stage of my career. I was so close to securing a bout in Rio last year. It was essentially a done deal. Maybe next time. Ui Vai Morrer!!!! I’m still here.”

Aldo responded during the UFC Fortaleza post-fight press conference (via

“To me it would be great. I don’t know if this fight he said [would be] in Rio, it didn’t get to me, but if I have that opportunity at the division above, that way I don’t have to suffer through the weight cut, I think it would be a great fight. I think in the first fight we weren’t able to show my work. He connected with a great punch, but if you have another opportunity, I think the story’s going to be different.”

McGregor holds a 13-second knockout victory over Aldo back in Dec. 2015. While McGregor was becoming a star before that featherweight title bout, he truly took off with that stunning finish.
