Aldo: McGregor ‘only a talker’ for now

Saturday, May 03, 2014

Connor McGregor said recently that the featherweight division is his and he would annihilate champion Jose Aldo. Today, Aldo finally responded:

That’s normal,” Aldo told “Some fighters like to promote themselves by talking, and he’s just another one. I’m open to new challenges and I really hope he gets where he’s saying he will, so we can fight and see for sure everything he says. For now, he’s only a talker.”

McGregor is 2-0 in the UFC with wins over Max Holloway and Marcus Brimage, but Aldo still hopes to see more from the Irish.

“I never watched this guy fight, man,” he said. “He only fought once and thinks he’s the king. I’m waiting to see him fight again.”
