MANILA, Philippines - That was quick.
With the MGM Grand still emptying out after Conor McGregor’s second round submission loss to Nate Diaz, Jose Aldo called out McGregor on Twitter for a rematch at UFC 200, which takes place July 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
“Your fairy tale is over. You got nowhere to run now. Time to a rematch, pussy,” Aldo challenged to McGregor, who knocked out the Brazilian in a record 13 seconds to win the featherweight title at UFC 194 in December.

McGregor is still reeling from his welterweight non-title loss on Sunday, March 6, having been pummeled by the California native Diaz, who took the fight on just 11 days notice.
Aldo isn’t the only fighter trying to get in the Octagon with the brash Irishman.
Frankie Edgar was promised a shot at the title by UFC president Dana White after defeating Chad Mendes in The Ultimate Fighter 22 finale in December.
“Everybody believes they’re ready for the title shot and they deserve it, and Frankie’s one of those guys,” said White. – Rappler.com
