UFC 194: Conor McGregor is never wrong, still doesn't think Jose Aldo will show up on Dec. 12

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) might want to start preparing for a new main event, especially considering it's just over one month away from its highly-anticipated UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Dec. 12, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Nevada.

That's where reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo is expected to unify the division titles against streaking interim titleholder Conor McGregor; however, the "Notorious" Irishman expects "Junior" to pull a repeat of last July's UFC 189 fiasco.

C-Mac talks to British GQ:

"I have beaten him already. He is dead. Look at his body language. His body is weak and his mind is weaker. I can smell the lack of confidence. If the mind is not in it, the body won't follow. He cannot beat me. He knows it. It's why he went running last time... I can hear it in his voice, I can see it in his eyes, I know when a man is beaten, and he is beaten mentally. I still don't think he will show. I am trying to be optimistic but I am never wrong, I always predict the outcome of my fights and I am never wrong."

Perennial day-saver Neil Magny might want to start his weight cut ASAP.

Depending on the outcome of UFC 194 (and the box-office bucks) an immediate rematch between Aldo and McGregor may be in order. That said, the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. Chad Mendes -- who fight here -- is also expected to get the next crack at the crown.

So, anyone (besides McGregor) think Aldo backs out?
