According to a recent report, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is looking to stage a rematch between former Lightweight and Featherweight champion, Conor McGregor, and former 145-pound kingpin, Jose Aldo.
If it comes to pass, it could go down at the upcoming UFC 244 PPV event on Nov. 2, 2019 in New York City inside famed Madison Square Garden. TalkMMA has the rumored scoop:
The two men initially three down way back in 2015 at UFC 194, with McGregor scoring a speculator 13-second knockout win to claim the 145-pound title. Indeed, the win was great for McGregor, but left fans feeling bit robbed, as the buildup to the title bout had all the making of a memorable five-round war.
Indeed, the two men embarked on a world tour to promote the fight for two months, leading to many face-to-face confrontations and memorable moments. But once the night cam to fight, Conor barely brook a sweat handing Aldo his first loss in a decade.
With both men coming off loses — Conor to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Aldo to Alex Volkanovski — it makes sens to stage the rematch, as the two men have been asking for it for some time.
It will give “Notorious” the chance to prove that his first win was no fluke, while it allows Jose the opportunity to get some sweet revenge on the man who sent his career spiraling downward in just 13 seconds.
