There’s beef in the UFC at the moment and – wouldn’t you know it? – it all revolves around the man of the moment, arguably the most-talked about sportsman on the planet, Conor McGregor. The row is between UFC boss Dana White and former champ Jose Aldo. The Brazilian fighter is p*ssed (to say the least). Accusing White of betraying him and going back on his word about a rematch.
Both parties have reacted strongly against one another…
And Jose is NOT happy. He posted this on his Instagram account recently:
Fala galera, estava quieto até agora porque da maneira que a luta aconteceu eu já estava me preparando nos treinos pois tinha certeza que teria a revanche imediata. Porém Acho que me enganei. Então queria deixar bem claro para o @UFC que não aceito nenhuma luta que não seja pelo cinturão, por tudo que eu fiz nesses 8 anos , por tudo que eu aceitei e pela forma que a luta acabou. A única exceção seria uma luta a qualquer momento, em qualquer lugar e já que ele está com medo de me devolver o cinturão, não precisa ser pelo cinturão…@thenotoriousmma Espero que que vocês também cumpram a palavra de vocês @danawhiteufc @lorenzofertitta pois ainda acredito na empresa que trabalho. #rematch Hi everyone, i was quiet for a while because i was waiting for my rematch based on how the fight Went down, in fact I was already training for it, but apparently I was wrong. So I wanted to make something clear to UFC: for everything I have done, everything I have accepted and mostly how the fight ended, I will not accept any other fight other than a title shot . My only exception would be fighting thenotorious , at any time, anywhere , and once that he is afraid and knows that I'm gonna win …. Doesn't have to be title fight against him. Keep my belt, but I wanna whoop ur ass anywhere. @danawhite @lorenzofertitta @ufc keep ur word. I still believe in the company that I work for. #rematch
And here’s what Dana White replied with when asked about it all:
“Well the problem is that’s what everybody’s saying now,” White said. “From flyweight to heavyweight, they all want to fight Conor McGregor. It’s the money fight!”
“It’s one of those things. We made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away.”
McGregor might have made light work of Aldo in that first fight, but don’t be fooled into thinking that he’s a pushover. This is one seriously tough guy we’re talking about here…
