With a huge interim title fight coming up in just five days time, you'd think Jose Aldo would be 100 percent focussed on his opponent at UFC 200, Frankie Edgar.
However, almost seven months on from his humiliating 13-second defeat to Conor McGregor at UFC 194, the Brazilian still can't get 'The Notorious One' off his mind.
Speaking via Fox Sports this week, Aldo confirmed that wasn't going to change until he was given the opportunity to take on McGregor again - even if that meant taking the fight to the streets:

"Only if he stops fighting," Aldo told reporters recently when asked if he'd retire before getting a second shot at the reigning Featherweight champion.
"As long as he's in the UFC, this fight will happen. That's a fact. We will get the belt back and be champion again...We'll move up.
"The UFC will do this fight. It doesn't matter at which weight. I don't care...We catch him in the street. No matter how, we will fight. [expletive] it."
Considering the way their first meeting went down - Aldo barely having time to take a swing at McGregor before being KO'd in Las Vegas last December - it is hardly surprising that the UFC's first ever Featherweight champion still has the current champ in his cross hairs.
With the Irishman having neglected his Featherweight duties in favour of fighting at a heavier weight since UFC 194, that has only intensified Aldo's desire to get revenge over his rival.
Of course, there is a fairly simple way for the Brazilian fighter to get what he wants. Beat Frankie Edgar this weekend, and he will automatically earn himself a title shot against McGregor.
Lose against Edgar, however, and he would be at the mercy of the UFC and McGregor. Whether the Dublin native would be willing to take on the fight outside of a mandatory title bout is unclear at this stage.
