Jose Aldo wants rematch with Conor McGregor: ‘I will be better prepared to reclaim what is mine’

New, comments

Conor McGregor ended Jose Aldo’s reign as featherweight champion in just 13 seconds, and the Brazilian fighter wants another shot at "The Notorious".

Moments after losing the 145-pound championship in the quickest championship fight in UFC history, and suffering the first knockout loss of his MMA career, Aldo asked for an immediate rematch.

"He threw a right on my chest, I expected that," Aldo told Joe Rogan inside the Octagon, "and when I attacked him, he hit a good left, and that was it.  I think after this fight, we have to go for a rematch."

After months of build-up and trash talk, Aldo wants to get back inside the cage with McGregor, and guarantees that his opponent’s trash talk didn’t play a factor in the clash.

"It didn’t affect anything," Aldo said. "He can say whatever he wants. I’ll never fall in any provocation. He was happy today, he hit me with a good punch. We have to go for a rematch, and I will be better prepared to reclaim what is mine."
