All in all, the former knockout artist turned distiller has kept his mouth shut under a haze of mystery. The UFC on ESPN+ 38 weigh-ins are complete, and all fighters were on target.

Let me ask you a quick question. Instead of the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the other two events were held at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan. Within a minute, Aldo regained consciousness and was on his feet. Both punches connected, but McGregor's left punch landed first.

However, Waterson pulled out of the bout on November 24 citing an injury. The supplement was tested and the banned substance did indeed come up, even though it was not listed on the label. It took just seconds for Moraes (23-6-1) to land a big head kick, immediately causing Aldo (28-6) to stumble. Boos rained down as Moraes' hand was raised, and the fighters embraced after the fight with Aldo visibly frustrated. Once again, however, White's proclamations need to be taken with a grain (or two...or 10) of salt. While Aldo lost the title to McGregor in December, Edgar has openly expressed his frustration with seemingly been passed over for the title shot. A lot of history. [18], Before the opening of the first round, they refused to touch gloves and went immediately into combat. I mean, who best to extinguish McGregor’s flame than the man it was ignited against on that fateful night in the MGM Grand? However, Aldo pulled out of the bout due to a rib injury and the event was instead headlined by an interim title bout between McGregor and Chad Mendes. Could he catch him with a good shot and rock him and follow it up? That stardom led to the UFC … Aldo came up just short in a highly-competitive, split decision loss to Marlon Moraes in their clash at UFC 245 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

However, the bout was cancelled both times due to Souza being struck with pneumonia[10] and Romero pulling out due to a ligament and meniscus tear in his knee, respectively. He would, however, like to see a rematch between McGregor and Aldo. However, the MGM Grand Garden Arena had already been booked for an Andrea Bocelli concert, prompting the UFC to look at alternative venues such as the Mandalay Bay Events Center. The former king of MMA has been pretty quiet since his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. Moraes rebounded from a knockout loss to bantamweight champ Henry Cejudo in his most recent fight, a loss that snapped a four-fight winning streak for the former WSOP champ. After rocking McGregor with a beautiful combination that would cause the featherweight champion to shoot in for a takedown, Diaz defended the takedown attempt flawlessly and eventually would lock in a rear-naked choke to earn a tap from McGregor and hand him his first ever UFC loss.

While there is a new 155-pound champion these days in Eddie Alvarez and a backlog of contenders in Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson and Michael Chiesa, there is no question that Alvarez vs. McGregor is the biggest fight that can be made at 155 pounds. Whatever way you answer that question, there is no doubt that betting on McGregor vs. Aldo 2 is going to polarize.

By: John Morgan, The Blue Corner. [20] “Again, nobody can take that left-hand shot,” said McGregor in the post-fight interview. As Aldo charged forward to connect with a right-left punch combination, McGregor moved backwards and connected with a left hook that landed on Aldo's chin and rendered him unconscious.

Known as the greatest featherweight in MMA history, this decade of dominance would be snapped by McGregor’s “Celtic Cross” at UFC 194 in December 2015.

The fact that Alvarez called out McGregor after taking the title speaks to that.

Aldo has now lost two consecutive bouts and is 3-5 since 2015. The typical USADA anti-doping violation suspension is two years. Does anyone know?

As a result, the 33-year-old fighter... Khamzat Chimaev isn't sure who he is fighting next but is pretty confident he can defeat whoever it may be. The UFC on ESPN+ 38 post-fight press conference will be live once the action concludes. Aldo faced McGregor in a title unification match on December 12, 2015, at UFC 194. This working-class Dubliner effectively tore through every man in front of him and did it with the confidence and aplomb of the greatest man to ever walk into a cage. If tonight's performance against one of bantamweight's elite is any indication, the former champ's future is indeed at 135 pounds. I think he will be up for the challenge, however, and will stop Aldo inside three rounds.

Their first bout was one of the most famous in the history of the UFC, if not one of the shortest. Make no mistake about it. The psychological advantage is in McGregor’s favor, and this is something that will matter more than some think. Are you sure you want to mark this comment as inappropriate?
