Let’s get ready to rumble because this fight is still set to go down.
After Jose Aldo pulled out of UFC 189 with a bruised rib, the pot has been boiling uncontrollably between Aldo and Conor McGregor. Aldo told the doctors that cleared him with his injury, that it was still too painful and there was no fight for the Featherweight belt in sight for Aldo.
McGregor, being the hot-headed Irishman he is, (don’t worry McGregor, I’m cut from the same cloth) took this backing out extremely personally and called Aldo out for being scared.
But who knows.
After Aldo said that there would be no fight, Chad Mendes was in line to fight McGregor. “The Notorious” Irishman took down Mendes with 0:03 in Round 2 by TKO
. Check out the video highlights of the fight…
During UFC 189 in the battle for the Featherweight title, Mendes had substantially more control
over McGregor. Mendes controlled the fight with 5:10 compared to McGregor’s 1:40. Taking this win over Mendes was something McGregor and the crowd saw coming, but it is still ammo for his arsenal against Aldo.
Aldo and McGregor have been set for a rematch, but no date or time has been specifically set. It’s been rumored AT&T Stadium
, home of the Dallas Cowboys might be where this all goes down. And let me tell you, it will go DOWN.
Jose Aldo is coming off of a rib injury which kept him out of UFC 189 against McGregor, but remains confident with his 25-1-0 record. Fighting out of Rio de Janerio, we can totally back up his strong
ground game considering Jiu Jitsu originated in Brazil. Not only is Aldo a force to be reckoned with on the ground, his KO power alone has allowed him to to pull out nine knockouts in his last 18 victories.
At 28 years old, standing 5’7” and weighing 145 lbs, Aldo’s strength is in his numbers.
He has not lost a fight since 2005, and is currently on a 18 fight winning streak. Not only is he a force on offense, but his defensive numbers keep him with the cream of the crop of the featherweight division. His takedown defense is a staggering 90% while he avoids 72% of all strikes. Just watch out for McGregor’s knees Aldo.
McGregor is coming off an impressive win
over Chad Mendes in UFC 189 and is looking to continue his 14 fight winning streak. With his overall record at 18-2-0, the 27 year old has built his empire. Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, McGregor has 16 wins by KO and one by a rear naked choke.
Standing at 5’9” and weighing in 145 lbs, McGregor is a lethal force in the octagon
. His impressive striking is only part of his deadly arsenal. The kid is a master at the rear naked choke, and he’s not afraid to use it. There is a reason why he’s such a hot commodity these days, the Irishman can BRAWL. Going in against Aldo, The Notorious already is favored 2-1, and us ladies here at The Coach’s Daughters couldn’t be more on his side.
And that’s not just because he’s easy on the eyes- But seriously, HOT DAMN.
This fight will be one for the books and everyone knows it.
So, hey, uh Dana White, you want to let us come ringside?
