Jose Aldo hadn't lost in 10 years before he faced Conor McGregor, and all of that was over in just 13 seconds, so it's not surprising that he would be itching to have a rematch to avenge the loss.

“Every night I ask God ‘Please give me another chance. Let me get into the Octagon against him. I know it will be different this time,'” Aldo said during an interview with Revista Combate.

Jose hasn't been given the shot at McGregor yet, but he was given a shot at earning the interim title when he faced Frankie Edgar at UFC 200. Aldo won via decision to regain the belt, but only because the current featherweight champ (McGregor) was off fighting a war with Nate Diaz at 170 pounds.

“If [a fight with McGregor] doesn’t end up happening, I do rather a fight against [Anthony]Pettis," Aldo said.

It's more likely than not that McGregor will be facing lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez next and won't be returning to 145, at least not yet.

Regardless of who he'll be matched with, Aldo will be prepared. He recently posted a video of himself hitting pads, throwing slick combos and displaying his power.
