Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch
On Thursday, UFC president Dana White, appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said, “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time, and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again, and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus, Conor wants to be a two-belt champion, so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch, his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
