‘You Have Nowhere to Run’

Despite his loss at UFC 229, Conor
McGregor
is still in high demand as an opponent.

Jose
Aldo
recently called out the Irishman on social media for a
rematch. McGregor ended Aldo’s lengthy reign as featherweight
champion with a 13-second knockout victory at UFC 194 in December
2015.

“You have nowhere to run,” Aldo wrote. “The time has come.”

The Brazilian angled for a rematch for some time after that UFC 194
defeat, but McGregor eventually moved on to bouts against Nate Diaz and
Eddie
Alvarez
. Aldo has also considered moving up a weight class in
the past but hasn’t yet competed at 155 pounds.

Including the aforementioned knockout loss to McGregor, Aldo is 2-3
in his last five Octagon appearances. He last appeared at UFC on
Fox 30, where he earned a first-round technical knockout of
Jeremy
Stephens
.

McGregor had his first fight in nearly two years at UFC 229, losing
to Khabib
Nurmagomedov
via fourth-round submission in a lightweight
championship bout. The SBG Ireland faces discipline from the Nevada
State Athletic Commission for taking a swing at one of
Nurmagomedov’s cornerman following the defeat.
