In Dec. 2015, Conor McGregor won his first undisputed UFC championship after knocking out Jose Aldo.
After winning the UFC featherweight title, McGregor clearly went over and told Aldo a private message.
While you couldn’t hear what McGregor said while watching the two inside the Octagon, referee “Big” John McCarthy later revealed what McGregor said to Aldo.
“Connor [sic] told Aldo that he was a great Champion and that if he wanted they will do it again,” McCarthy said on Twitter.
As of today, that was the last time McGregor fought as a featherweight. Since then, he has gone on to win the UFC Lightweight Championship. As for Jose Aldo, without even own a UFC title to contest for, it would no longer make sense for Conor McGregor to honor these words.
McGregor last saw action losing to Floyd Mayweather in round 10 of their boxing match.
It is currently speculated that he will face Tony Ferguson in his return to UFC action.
