Jose Aldo has already bailed on a fight with Conor McGregor once. And according to one report, Aldo could do it again.
Former UFC fighter Chael Sonnen cited sources in Brazil on his “You’re Welcome” podcast that told him McGregor might not be the interim featherweight champion much longer.
“I am hearing things from people in Brazil, and in this sport where there is smoke there is fire,” Sonnen said. “Every single time — if there is smoke there is fire, and I am hearing things from people in Brazil … that they are not confident that Jose’s gonna make the walk. I want that fight to happen, I really do, and I don’t wanna start a rumor here … but that’s what I heard.”
Aldo, of course, infamously pulled out of his title bout versus McGregor at UFC 189 last July. Aldo claimed an injury and decided not to fight just two weeks before it was scheduled.
