Jose Aldo can’t wait to put his hands on Conor McGregor.

The UFC featherweight champion will face the Irish contender on July 11, but he’s not sure he will be able to wait for UFC 189. In fact, he wants to repeat the Jon Jones-Daniel Cormier pre-fight brawl days before the actual fight.

Aldo and McGregor faced off multiple times during the UFC 189 world tour earlier this year, and the possibility of being fined prevented him from touching his opponent. Now, the UFC champion believes he’s cleared to do whatever he wants.

"We talked about a possible fine during the tour, but it is too expensive, and I couldn’t afford getting fined," Aldo said in a press conference in his gym on Tuesday. "That was an issue because I couldn’t do what I wanted to do. But the fight is around the corner now so we can do something more because nobody will do anything about it. It there’s any trash talk, I know what I’m going to do.

"I already have in my mind what I’m going to do, but it’s a secret," the champion continued. "It’s going to be a different Aldo. There’s no fine or suspension anymore. After everything they spent, they won’t cancel this fight for anything. I’m sure he will come after me, but I guarantee it’s going to be different this time."

Asked about McGregor’s pre-fight trash talk, Aldo said he would love to brawl with "The Notorious" on fight week.

"It would be great if there’s a brawl. I hope that happens. That’s what people want," he said. "I’m paid to beat people up so, if that happens, it would be wonderful. I hope I can beat him up. The fun is over, it’s going to be for good now. After this staredown, he will give up doing anything he was planning to do. You will see."

Next to the bed in his Windsport motor home, parked behind a discount tire store in suburban San Diego, "The World's Most Dangerous Man" has a Bible and a Glock.

"That's the American way," Ken Shamrock says, breaking into a smile with just enough malice to make you wonder. "Me and my Bible will beat the faith into you."


In the next room, a timid pit bull whines, tail between its legs. She's been Shamrock's only company as he prepares for Friday's much-anticipated fight with Kimbo Slice on Spike TV. There's a greasy George Foreman grill in the back. A ubiquitous and eponymous energy drink is everywhere.

There are no luxuries here.
