Jose Aldo Calls Out Conor McGregor: ‘I Wanna Whoop’ You In Rematch

by

A rough 13 seconds isn’t going to crush Jose Aldo’s confidence.

Aldo took to social media Wednesday to inform UFC he won’t accept anything less than a title shot. The lone exception? A rematch with Conor McGregor, who knocked out Aldo in 13 seconds at UFC 194.

Fala galera, estava quieto até agora porque da maneira que a luta aconteceu eu já estava me preparando nos treinos pois tinha certeza que teria a revanche imediata. Porém Acho que me enganei. Então queria deixar bem claro para o @UFC que não aceito nenhuma luta que não seja pelo cinturão, por tudo que eu fiz nesses 8 anos , por tudo que eu aceitei e pela forma que a luta acabou. A única exceção seria uma luta a qualquer momento, em qualquer lugar e já que ele está com medo de me devolver o cinturão, não precisa ser pelo cinturão…@thenotoriousmma Espero que que vocês também cumpram a palavra de vocês @danawhiteufc @lorenzofertitta pois ainda acredito na empresa que trabalho. #rematch Hi everyone, i was quiet for a while because i was waiting for my rematch based on how the fight Went down, in fact I was already training for it, but apparently I was wrong. So I wanted to make something clear to UFC: for everything I have done, everything I have accepted and mostly how the fight ended, I will not accept any other fight other than a title shot . My only exception would be fighting thenotorious , at any time, anywhere , and once that he is afraid and knows that I'm gonna win …. Doesn't have to be title fight against him. Keep my belt, but I wanna whoop ur ass anywhere. @danawhite @lorenzofertitta @ufc keep ur word. I still believe in the company that I work for. #rematch

McGregor is scheduled to fight Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 5. Aldo clearly would like to avenge last month’s loss to McGregor, though, especially since the quick knockout was such a shocking result after such a huge buildup.

We’ll see if UFC president Dana White grants Aldo his wish at some point in the near future, but McGregor can ill-afford to focus on anything his last opponent says or posts on social media. McGregor is moving up in weight to fight dos Anjos, so the featherweight champion already has his hands full.
