The campaign trail to face Conor McGregor at UFC 200 is hotting up. Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com reported last week and confirmed yesterday on The MMA Hour that the UFC are working on a rematch between Nate Diaz and McGregor at UFC 200.
However, former 145lb king Jose Aldo is still on the hunt for a rematch of his own and has taken to social media to stake his claim.

In their first bout at UFC 196, Conor McGregor defeated Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds, ending the bout with a beautiful counter left, rendering Aldo unconscious in the process.
Aldo has become more active on social media in the past few weeks and is not going to be deterred by the hate coming his way.
