UFC fans witnessed an exciting boxing match at Gamebred Boxing 4 in Milwaukee last Saturday when Jose Aldo and Jeremy Stephens boxed to a majority draw. The former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor was among the fans who followed the match and expressed his interest in boxing with Aldo. However, Aldo did not take McGregor’s words kindly and fired back at him in the post-fight press conference.
McGregor further added that McGregor talks only to sell things and not to fight. Aldo said he would consult with his manager Ali Abdelaziz to decide his next move, which includes boxing Floyd Mayweather Jr. exhibition match in Saudi Arabia and rematching Stephens under the Gamebred Boxing banner.
During the press conference, the translator did not translate Aldo’s words to McGregor, which the latter noted. McGregor, who is expected to face Michael Chandler later this year, responded to Aldo’s comments on social media.
