Audio Released Of Jose Aldo’s Camp Trying To Calm Him Down During Conor McGregor’s Walk Out
Another slice of unseen footage from Conor McGregor’s infamous bout with Jose Aldo at UFC 194 has surfaced this week, complete some very interesting audio, including trash talk from both sides of the octagon.
The Irish mixed martial arts superstar, now the UFC’s lightweight champion, had been scheduled to fight Aldo all the way back in July of 2015 at UFC 189, however, Aldo was forced to withdraw from the card due to injury only a few days before the bout. He was replaced with Chad “Money” Mendes, who McGregor would go on to knockout in the second round of the fight, earning the interim featherweight title in the process.
“I see him overreacting, overextending and then being knocked out unconscious,” said McGregor in the lead-up to the bout. As these things tend to go with “Mystic Mac”, he was right.
The lead up to the fight resulted in some of the most hardcore trash talk the UFC has seen since Chael Sonnen took the stage, and it didn’t end when Aldo and McGregor were finally in the cage together.
“Welcome to hell, Aldo,” calls out McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh as Aldo’s team heckles them in Portuguese.
McGregor finally got his crack at Aldo at UFC 194, destroying his Brazilian rival in just 13 seconds with a vicious left hook and some follow-up shots on the ground, walking away moments later as the undisputed king of the UFC’s featherweight division.
“F*ck…WOW! Did you see that?” screams Kavanagh as McGregor mounts the cage in what would go on to become a defining image of his victory over Aldo
While McGregor may have never defended his title, instead opting to take on two welterweight bouts with fan favorite Nate Diaz, and then brutalizing Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight strap, a rematch between Aldo and McGregor, and the subsequent trash talk is something more than a few fans would love to see.
