Conor McGregor will finally be getting the chance to avenge his only defeat in the UFC later this month at UFC 202. 

McGregor will be going toe-to-toe with Nate Diaz on August 20th to try and undo the humiliation he suffered when he tapped out in the middle of the octagon on that fateful night at UFC 196, gassing himself early before getting put in a rear-naked choke.

The Notorious One will be going all out to get that victory back, which could have serious repercussions for the future, which Jose Aldo has now revealed.

While speaking during a media scrum in Rio de Janeiro, via The Daily Star, Aldo claimed that if McGregor does come out victorious over Diaz then he will not be getting a shot at the UFC featherweight title anytime soon.

"No, no. He has to lose. Otherwise, they will do a third fight," Aldo reportedly told members of the media in his native Brazil.

"I’m rooting for him to lose, of course. If he wins, they will do another rematch with Nate, and that’s bad," Aldo added about McGregor.

"If he loses (to Diaz), it’s highly likely that they put us to fight on November 12, at Madison Square Garden. The Irish community is big over there," Aldo went on to add.

"But if he wins, I think they will do a third fight between them and ruin all my plans."

McGregor hasn't defended the UFC featherweight title once since beating Aldo in 13 seconds back in December 2015 at UFC 194.
