Conor McGregor calls Jose Aldo a 'loser' after UFC 196 loss taunts

After Conor McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196, attention immediately turned to a potential rematch between the Irishman and Jose Aldo.

The Brazilian called for one after McGregor was shocked in the second round in Las Vegas, saying on Twitter: “You got nowhere to run now.”

Aldo lost his featherweight title to McGregor in 13 seconds last December but wants to reclaim it at UFC 200 in July.

He was the first to taunt the Dubliner, adding: “See ya at #UFC200. Your fairy tale is over. Time to a rematch, p***y.”

McGregor wasn’t too happy at Aldo for revelling in another man’s delight, saying: “Another man gets a victory over me and he celebrates it. That’s the sign of a loser, that’s the sign of a runner-up, not the sign of a champion.

“[Aldo] had an opportunity to show up and he didn’t. He could be sitting where Nate is now; he was the first choice.”

Rafael dos Anjos was McGregor’s expected opponent but the Brazilian was forced to pull out after breaking his foot.

Back to featherweight

The Dubliner fought Diaz at welterweight, weighing in at 168 lbs, but admitted he will go down to featherweight for his next bout.

He continued: “I am the featherweight world champion and if I feel it’s right to go back down there and remind them of what I achieved and what I did to that division.”

Another possible opponent is Frankie Edgar, who beat Chad Mendes the night before McGregor defeated Aldo.

But a rematch between the two rivals appears inevitable.
