Fans debate whether Jose Aldo would have beaten Conor McGregor in a rematch

Following Jose Aldo’s retirement from MMA last month, his dream rematch against Conor McGregor has once again become a hot topic in the MMA community.

McGregor KO’d Aldo in just 13 seconds to become the undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion at UFC 194 in December 2015. After that, the paths of both fighters never crossed again.

In a post on the @thefightbubble Instagram account, fans have expressed opposing viewpoints on a hypothetical rematch between McGregor and Aldo. Some fans said McGregor was mentally unbeatable in his prime. One fan praised ‘The Notorious’ for using the greatest mental warfare they’ve ever seen on Aldo:

“Conor easy, he played the greatest mental warfare I’ve ever seen”

Also, some fans agreed with the hypothesis that Aldo could have been in the best mental state but still lost to McGregor because the latter was a poor stylistic matchup for him. A fan wrote:

“Jose might be in the best mental state he’s ever been in, but he would never have beaten that Conor. There’s a lot that goes in and out of that style of movement and Jose wouldn’t have countered that.”

Some fans also suggested that an immediate rematch would have favored McGregor, while a fight down the line could have seen Aldo emerge victorious. One fan hinted that Aldo could have hit McGregor if he drowned out the Irishman’s mental warfare:

“If Jose had found a way to drown out the mental torture Conor sent him, Aldo. If not, Conor would have done the same, just maybe not in 13 seconds.”

Also, an Instagram user claimed that Aldo defeated McGregor in 12 seconds in a rematch. Meanwhile, another user declared that Aldo didn’t deserve a rematch:

“No rematch needed… fell asleep in seconds, accept clean losses and move on!”

Is Conor McGregor Coming Back To Welterweight?

While former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has retired from MMA, his nemesis Conor McGregor has vowed to get back to the top of the food chain.

Former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion McGregor suffered a gruesome leg injury in his lightweight matchup against Dustin Poirier last July.

The consensus is that Conor McGregor’s injury layoff is unlikely to end until February/March 2023 at the earliest. Additionally, many believe McGregor – who has been bulking up in recent months – won’t be competing at lightweight next.

Conor McGregor is said to be targeting a return to welterweight on his much-anticipated return in 2023. However, it remains unclear who he will face in his comeback fight.
