McGregor also said Aldo deserves a rematch for his recent performances inside the Octagon. The pair initially met in the main event of UFC 194 back in 2015. After months of trash-talking, McGregor was able to get under Aldo’s skin enough and force him to come out aggressive. In turn, McGregor was able to counter the Brazilian for a 13-second knockout, the fastest finish in UFC title fight history.
With back-to-back knockout wins, McGregor believes Aldo has earned a rematch opportunity. He even thought about stepping in against Aldo at UFC 237 in Brazil, but the co-main event controversy put a stop to that:
“Even Aldo now currently, he had a great win, his last two wins were great wins,” McGregor said. “He had a little bit of a slip, but he’s had two great wins and now he’s fighting in his hometown of Rio De Janeiro.
“I actually was thinking I might slide in and face him, but all these politics and co-main event conversation kind of halted that as well. If he wins, I believe he’s up in line for a rematch also. Although it was a 12-second knockout, I still think if you rise up again, you deserve a rematch. So, this is where we are at.”
