Jose Aldo Posts Statement, Says He’ll Fight Conor McGregor in Non-Title Fight
By FCF Staff
Jose Aldo has said he’s willing to wait on the sidelines until he’s granted a title shot, but the former featherweight champ has changed that stance..somewhat.
Since Aldo was KO’d by Conor McGregor at UFC 194 last month, the Brazilian star has repeatedly called for an immediate rematch with his rival. But, in a new post that’s gone up on Aldo’s Facebook page, the featherweight has relayed he’s willing to fight McGregor even if it’s not for the title.
Hi everyone, I was quiet for a while, because I was waiting for my rematch. In fact, I was already training for it, based on how the fight went down. But apparently I was wrong. So I wanted to make something clear to the UFC: for everything that I’ve done, everything I’ve accepted, and mostly how the fight ended, I will not accept any other fight other than a title shot. My only exception would be fighting Conor McGregor. At any time, anywhere, and since he is scared and knows that I’m gonna win… It doesn’t even have to be title fight against him. You can keep my belt. What I want is to whoop your ass. Again: any time, anywhere.
Dana White Lorenzo Fertitta, keep ur word. I still believe in the company that I work for. #rematch
McGregor is scheduled to fight lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on March 5th at UFC 197.
