Now that Conor McGregor has been defeated, courtesy of a fourth-round submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) event last Sat. night (Oct. 6, 2018) in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch it), fighters are coming out of the woodwork in hopes of scoring a red-panty night against the “Notorious” one.
Including former opponent Jose Aldo, who told the recovering Irishman “there’s nowhere to run” and “it’s time” in his recent Instagram post.
“Junior” was stopped in just 13 seconds when he fought McGregor in the UFC 194 main event back in late 2015 (recap). It was the Brazilian’s first loss inside the Octagon and his career has been up-and-down in the years that followed.
Sounds like Aldo is looking to exorcise a few demons.
But McGregor has other plans, according to his UFC 229 post-fight reaction (see it). He’s also going to have to make sure Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) doesn’t block the exit in hopes of handing down punishment for his role in the “Sin City” debacle.
McGregor vs. Aldo 2 ... who wants it?
