Conor McGregor Jose Aldo | UFC | MMA | UBET

One of the most anticipated bouts in recent UFC history will take place this weekend at UFC 194 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas when Conor “The Notorious” McGregor takes to the octagon against Jose “Junior” Aldo. This fight has been coming ever since McGregor jumped out of the Octagon after knocking out Dennis Siver and directly challenged a smiling Aldo in the front row. After withdrawing from an earlier proposed meeting at UFC 189 due to a rib injury, Aldo has ensured the world that he will rock up and take the points from the UFC Interim Featherweight champion McGregor. The Irishman has been slugging Aldo with some quality lip for months, ensuring this bout will be a fiery one. UBET takes a quick look at each fighter.
