Jose Aldo calls Conor McGregor a ‘pussy’, calls for a lightweight rematch with the Irishman

Jose Aldo is still transfixed with Conor McGregor it seems.

Conor McGregor was stripped of the UFC featherweight title earlier this week with Jose Aldo promoted to champion from interim champion.

Jose Aldo spoke with Planeta SporTV this week and states that he is the rightful champion.

“I was always the champion and will always be as long as I’m in the featherweight division. No matter what happens, I will always be the champion. I had no doubt about it. The moment I lost, I knew the belt would be mine. It was a matter of time. It’s not the way I wanted, but I’m happy because I know I’m the champion.”

When it come to the UFC stripping the Irishman, Aldo was not surprised.

“That was a fact I knew would happen, that he would drop a belt, my belt or the lightweight,” he said. “It’s a tough fight for him at lightweight, with Khabib (Nurmagomedov), or a rematch with me, so he preferred to drop mine (belt). No problem.”

Aldo did not stop there. He then spoke to the UFC website in Brazil, Aldo called McGregor a “pussy” for never defending the featherweight title he won last December.

“I knew that would happen,” said Aldo, who lost to McGregor in 13 seconds at UFC 194. “To me, I never stopped being champion. I lost that fight because of an accident. I knew that I would win a rematch, that I would be champion again. It’s not my fault that he’s such a pu–y he was never the champion. I don’t see myself losing to anyone in this division or any other (division).”

UFC 206 will be held on December 10, 2016, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and with the interim featherweight title on the line between Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis, Aldo is looking to face the winner in March to unify the titles and then move to lightweight to face McGregor.

“First, I want to defend my title, and then go after a fight with him (at lightweight),” Aldo said. “Just like Dana (White) said, we can choose who we want to fight, so I want to fight him. That’s what will happen.”
