Jose Aldo, Rafael dos Anjos rip Conor McGregor's performance against Floyd Mayweather

Conor McGregor’s performance against Floyd Mayweather didn’t impress everyone.

UFC fighters Jose Aldo and Rafael dos Anjos took to Twitter on Saturday night to criticize the Irishman’s boxing performance against the undefeated Mayweather, who is arguably one of the best boxers of all time. McGregor suffered a tenth-round technical knockout loss to Mayweather.

Immediately after McGregor’s boxing bout, Aldo tweeted a series of crying-of-laughter emojis. The Brazilian has history with McGregor as they competed back at UFC 194 in December, 2015. That night in Las Vegas, Aldo lost his featherweight title after getting knocked out by McGregor just 13 seconds into the fight.

On the other hand, dos Anjos upped Aldo by not only using Twitter to blast McGregor but also Instagram.

Dos Anjos was scheduled to defend his UFC lightweight title against McGregor back in March of 2016, but due to a foot injury, dos Anjos was forced to withdraw from the bout. The Brazilian was never rebooked to fight McGregor again, and went on to lose his lightweight belt to Eddie Alvarez after coming back from his injury.
