Conor McGregor comes to the rescue – Defends his former foe

✅ Conor McGregor: "I wish him well"

Conor McGregor isn’t known for making friends, but lately “The Notorious” McGregor has been very cordial to his fellow MMA athletes.

When everyone seemed to blast his former foe Jose Aldo for his weight cut down to bantamweight, McGregor came to the rescue and gave his opinion on the matter. MMA journalist Ariel Helwani shared “troubling” pictures of Aldo and McGregor answered:

“I disagree here. He looks more than on top of it in my experienced opinion,” Conor McGregor wrote. “Well trimmed in advance, and naturally a lighter man now. This can only be done over a long length of time and with complete dedication. Respect! I wish him well and am excited to see him in this division.”

This is a complete turnaround from 2015 when Aldo and McGregor were on a collision course for the featherweight strap. McGregor played mind games with Aldo and ended up finishing the Brazilian in just 13 seconds. Since then, Aldo has gone 3-3 in the UFC, losing twice to current champion Max Holloway.

Already a legend in the featherweight division, Aldo decided to move down to bantamweight after a decision loss to Alexander Volkanovski in May. Helwani questioned Aldo’s reasoning in a reply to McGregor:

“What can be gained from a cut like this at this point,” Helwani asked. “Prior to his last fight, a loss to the man who is fighting for the belt next week, he looked great in two straight wins/finishes.”

McGregor answered:

“The rejuvenation of your career with fresh goals and targets,” McGregor wrote. “The prestige of being a UFC World champion in two weight divisions! The feeling of excitement you will give the fans with all the new potential match-ups that can be made! All great and valid reasons! Enjoy ;) ”

 

Aldo will make his bantamweight debut against top ranked Marlon Moraes at UFC 245 on December 14.
