Jose Aldo hasn’t faced really many bad nights during his reign with a UFC though there was nothing worse than his 13-second knockout suffered to Conor McGregor in 2015.
It was radically a calamity incited to existence after Aldo intent in a year prolonged argument with McGregor including a worldwide media debate that incited flighty on some-more than one occasion. In a end, Aldo’s seven-time fortifying featherweight pretension strain came to a crashing hindrance with one punch that handed a Brazilian his initial detriment in over a decade.
Since that time, Aldo has finished all in his energy to book a rematch with McGregor though to no avail. Despite winning a featherweight pretension in a Irishman’s deficiency and McGregor relocating adult to 155 pounds to win a pretension in that division, Aldo still can’t shun questions about him any time a microphone is placed in front of his face.
Of march it’s formidable for any warrior to demeanour behind on a quite tough loss, though for Aldo it’s roughly like he can’t shun that 13-second knockout no matter what he does with his career.
So during this point, Aldo is creation it transparent that he’s relocating past McGregor once and for all. He’s finished posterior a rematch given Aldo knows it’s not going to occur so there’s no genuine reason he should still be responding questions about McGregor anymore.
“The UFC attempted to make this quarrel occur again. It didn’t happen. The man does not wish to quarrel with me again so might it be a final time that people ask,” Aldo barked during a UFC 212 pre-fight media discussion call on Thursday. “He doesn’t wish to have anything to do with me anymore and that’s fine.
“People don’t need to keep seeking me about Conor McGregor anymore. It’s happened. It’s in a past.”
Even with a adversary that Aldo common with McGregor for a improved partial of a year and a simmering contempt he’s felt for a stream lightweight champion ever since, he indeed has no regrets about what happened outward of a detriment itself.
Aldo knows he can’t change a past so he can’t lay and protest about a detriment to McGregor any longer.
Instead, Aldo is only relocating brazen with his career and he’s happy that his star got even brighter during a barbarous showdown with McGregor from scarcely dual years ago.
“I fought Conor, it’s something that we try to take a best out of. I’m not going to lay around and cry, though in a finish we did remove a quarrel so if we were to go behind and change anything, we would change that,” Aldo said.
“Really all else that went around it, a prophesy was promoted, a UFC, myself we was promoted so we try to see a good in it, a china lining.”
