Conor McGregor, as always, has plenty to say.

The UFC featherweight champion will be vying become the first multi-weight champion in UFC history when he fights Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in New York on November 12.

But, while McGregor has gone in search of history, many feel he has neglected the one championship that he does hold.

Notorious won the featherweight strap from long-standing champion Jose Aldo in 13 seconds at UFC 194 with a brutal left hand, but the Brazilian has since come back and won the interim strap while McGregor was busy battling with Nate Diaz.

Before McGregor's blockbuster fight with Alvarez was made, Aldo was very vocal about getting a rematch with the Irishman and has threatened to retire if the UFC do not comply with his wishes.

However, Mystic Mac thinks Aldo's stance is all a ploy and stepping back into the Octagon with him is the last thing he wants.

"I don't think he wants the rematch," McGregor said during a recent Facebook chat for LAD Bible. "I think he's happy with this feud and this 'get out' clause.

"I knocked him out, he came back, won a decision, he has an interim belt. I think he wants this kind of feud with the UFC and he wants to just separate himself. He doesn't want this again."

In reality, there is not much in an Aldo rematch for McGregor. How is he meant to do better than he did in the first fight? And after watching Aldo get so savagely knocked out, how many people are going to buy the pay-per-view believing he can exact revenge?

Sooner or later, McGregor will have to go back down to 145lbs and defend his crown, it just doesn't seem like he is bothered about doing so against Aldo.
