Jose Aldo takes shot at Conor McGregor over Twitter

Conor McGregor wasn’t interested in flying to multiple cities to promote a UFC 200 rematch with Nate Diaz, and former champion Jose Aldo fired shots at the Irishman on Twitter.

Aldo, who lost to "The Notorious" back in December, flew to Las Vegas to promote his upcoming fight with Frankie Edgar, also booked for UFC 200 on July 9, and posted a picture on his Twitter after training with teammates.

Aldo (25-2) faces Edgar (20-4-1) for the interim belt at UFC 200, and the promotion has yet to officially announce the card’s main event. McGregor released a statement saying that he's willing to fight Diaz in July, but the promotion has made no comments yet.
