McGregor Says He Could Beat Aldo and Jesus, Aldo Says Conor is “Working For Me”

Conor McGregor (15-2) Is Looking To Take The UFC By Storm

TMZ caught up to Conor McGregor and like most TMZ interviews it was very interesting.

“I don’t think he’ll see the second round,” said McGregor. “I don’t think he’ll make it to the second… damaging, damaging blows in the first round. If he can withstand that, he could quit on the stool. Something’s telling me he might quit on the stool – not answer the bell for the second. Or maybe not quit on the stool, but be forced out of the contest because he can’t continue.”

Then he told TMZ he could take Jesus.

“Me … versus … Jesus … in … the … Octagon?” he repeated, smiling. “How would me vs Jesus… I tell you what, there’s not a man alive that can beat me. But Jesus ain’t alive is he, so I don’t f—ing know. Maybe he can come back from the dead. I don’t know. I’d still whoop his ass.”

Jose Aldo spoke to MMAFighting and claimed he was basically using Conor for selling the fight and explained why he pulled out the first time.

“Another win,” said Aldo, as transcribed by Guilherme Cruz for MMAFighting. “No reason to be different. That’s what I fight for. It doesn’t matter how it goes. I have to go there, win, and remain champion. The only difference is that I always fought against Americans, and now I’m beating up an Irishman.”

“He’s working for me, bringing me money, so why am I going to be angry at him? I love all this. He has done good things for the division. If we had another one like him, it would be great.

“He’s just another one. I’ve fought many top fighters before, and he’s just another opponent I have to go there and run through.”

“It doesn’t matter if he underestimates me or not. I focus on myself and I train for myself. When I get in there, it doesn’t matter what he or others think. I think about myself, and I know I’ll go in there to work and win.”

I will be there, for sure, one more time, winning, as usual. That’s normal for me.”

Aldo also addressed why he pulled out of the planned fight at UFC 189 with injured ribs.

“[McGregor] wouldn’t even get close to me, he wouldn’t hit me,” said Aldo. “That’s not what stopped me from fighting, but other things that would happen. The fight is not what bothered me. I will go there and win like I always did.

“It was the weight cut. I would go there and still need to cut weight. The fight itself didn’t bother me. He also had a bad knee too. Relax. Wherever I hit, brother, you go to sleep.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
