I'm not entirely certain Jose Aldo has the right to talk shit right now, but that doesn't mean he's not going to do just that. He may have lost in 13 seconds to Conor McGregor at UFC 194 but he now has some words for Conor McGregor after his loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196.
Here's what he had to say to Esporte Espetacular about how Conor McGregor should feel after attempting to go up two weight classes (to welterweight) to 170 pounds and now possibly returning to featherweight.
"You will come back (to the featherweight division) with your tail between your legs after what happened, after that embarrassment. You will come back. My hand almost caught you, but when it does for good, you will sleep."
Hmm... I don't fully understand how this much trash is being talked by Jose. Take a look at what happened when these dudes fought last.
That didn't stop him, though. He went on and added,
"He’s a lion when he’s attacking, but a kitten when he’s getting beat up. Everybody saw in his eyes that he’s just a p---- that quits when he’s getting beat up. That’s what we saw."
With McGregor-Diaz targeted for UFC 200, Aldo insists that the fight the world wants to see is his rematch for the featherweight crown.
"I’m waiting for the rematch. It’s the right thing to do in my opinion because there was no fight, and everybody wants to see a fight. Everybody wants to see me beating him up, and that’s what I’m going to do. I will run through him, that’s a fact. I don’t see other scenario in my head besides going there and winning, and getting my belt back."
What do you think?
Should Jose Aldo be talking trash right now?
