    Conor McGregor was apparently one of the many spectators who saw Saturday night’s UFC card in Fortaleza, Brazil unfold. Right after the fight, “The Notorious” gave props to how the event unfolded, while also stating that he was close to finalizing a fight in Rio de Janeiro in 2018, which was supposedly against Rafael dos Anjos.

    McGregor’s statements were brought up during Aldo’s post-fight media scrum, which the former 145-pound champion entertained by another call for a rematch. However, he intends for it to happen outside of the 145-pound division.

    “If I have that opportunity at the division above, that way I won’t have to suffer through the weight cut, I think it…

    conor might get starched
    might have partied his reflexes away

    Aldo 2.0 is a mean guy

    I just want to see the fight actually play out.

    If aldo gets dropped again fine but we didn't learn much about how their skills actually match up in the first fight .

    I think it should happen. Conor got his rematch. Straight away against Nate Andy there’s were serious thoughts about having him rematch Khabib straight after he got his ass mauled.

    Aldos won two in a row against top ten fighters via tko and it’s not like anyone’s considers McGregor number 1 right now. So fuck it let’s have a rematch

    I don't like aldo 2.0. He needs more than one threat. Without his kicks he is 50% aldo 1.0.

    The second potential fight won't show what the first could have been though. Aldo can't kick anymore.

    He was injured a few years ago and can't kick because of it. He throws them out there from time to time, but there is nothing on them. It's his hips or some shit that got fucked up. Now he is all punches without even the threat of his kicks (the thing that made him aldo).
