Aldo and his camp have said the Brazilian star will wait on the sidelines until he’s granted a title shot, and that he won’t fight unless the belt’s on the line. But, recently Aldo posted a statement on Facebook, and that condition has been dropped. If, however, the fight involves McGregor.
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 WhiteLorenzo Fertitta, keep ur word. I still believe in the company that I work for. #rematch
How about that? Now could a non-title, McGregor – Aldo II bout materialize? Probably not. Unless, of course, McGregor loses the belt in the coming months…Up next, the new 145 champ will battle lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on March 5th.
