Few days ago Jose Aldo demanded a rematch with Conor McGregor for his 13 second humiliating defeat. Responding to that Dana White has dismissed these demands and said “It’s tough to make that fight again”.
This will come out as a blow for Brazilian and after this revelation by the UFC President, it seems the former UFC featherweight champion will be sitting on the sidelines for some time, unless he agrees to face another opponent.
“The Notorious” has now shifting his focus on acquiring the lightweight title from another Brazilian, Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 5. Nobody knows who his next target will be after that fight. The Irishman wants to keep two championship belts at the same time and wants to compete against top names in UFC.
Talking to Opie & Jim Norton, Dana White said: “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. Plus, Conor wants to be a two-belt champion, so he wants to fight dos Anjos.”
The 27-year-old McGregor has now become the most attractive name in UFC and fighter wants to fight him as “He’s the money fight” according to White.
