McGregor Gives Tips to Win Bar Fight, Aldo to be Out For a Year

("Notorious" Conor McGregor)

UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor does most of his fighting in The Octagon, but if forced to defend himself, he will be okay.

“My top tips for winning a bar fight,” he began. “Like most self-defense situations it is about awareness. So be aware of your surroundings.

“Obviously if you can avoid the situation, avoid it and leave. If you are forced, where there is no going back, I would advise strike first, strike hard, and exit safely.

“James Bond had a quote – ‘ When you enter a room, be civil to everybody, but have a plan to kill each and every one of them.’

“That’s a KO win.”

So to sum up:

1. Be aware of your surroundings
2. Leave if you can.
3. Strike first, strike hard, then leave.
4. Be civil to everyone.

Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has a condition for his return to the Octagon – title fight only. Aldo won’t rule out sitting out an entire year if the next title shot at featherweight goes to Frankie Edgar. Aldo’s manager Andre Pederneiras explained the reasoning in a recent media scrum in Rio de Janeiro.

“What I can say is that that’s our idea right now,” said Pederneiras, as transcribed byGuilherme Cruz for MMAFighting.com. “It might change tomorrow, but that’s our idea right now.”

“Aldo believes he has this right, and so do I. He will only fight for the belt. The champion he was, undefeated for 10 years, he thinks he has the same right others had. Some fighters are getting rematches they deserve less than Aldo. If it’s going to be soon or in 10 years, he thinks he deserves a title fight.”

“I wouldn’t let (McGregor) move up and take the belt with him, but it’s the UFC’s call, I can’t do anything about it. I have to accept it. I can’t say I’m happy with it, though. I’m not, and Aldo is not happy about it either. But we can’t do anything about it. When you fight for a company, you have two options: leave the company, or accept the condition and wait, try to negotiate what’s better for you, and that’s what we’re doing right now.”

The manager said he expects to meet with UFC brass “soon” to decide Aldo’s next fight.

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.
