I really hope this fight isn't called off.


I don't think I could stand the build up again.
Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get me...

Would feel bad on a lot of people who paid to go. Its still a great trip for them and he will fight someone, but they probably paid an additional premium because it was a title fight and many of them will want to go back again next time around, costing a small fortune again!

Jose Aldo has a serious track record of "being injured" - He's pulled out of UFC 125, UFC 149, UFC 153, and UFC 176. He's a bit of a coward.

It was funny watching Joe Duffy giving Conor alot of smack talk on Twitter. No way would Conor go even near him anytime soon LOL

Worth mentioning Cathal Pendred has been added to the UFC 189 card as of yesterday Thumbs Up

McGregor did an interview for UFC back in December.

He predicted Aldo would withdraw within 2 weeks of the fight and he'd be fighting Chad Mendes instead. Scary if it happens.

3 of those were in N. America too. Seems to be happy to fight in Brazil, though.

Mad to think that he's pulled out of 4 title defences and only fought 7 times in his 10 years in the UFC. SEVEN times in a decade!! Cathal Pendred is about to have his 5th fight within his first year!

Aldo has had 7 fights for UFC since April 2011.The merger took place towards the end of 2010.

That's still pretty weak considering Cathel Pandred is about to have his 5th in 11 months.

I think his track record and revenue lost are major factors in their decision to strip him if he doesn't fight.

7 title fights between April 2011 and October 14 isnt too bad .if the McGregor fight goes ahead on July it will be 8 fights in approx 51 months.
Pointless comparing Aldo to Pendred ,Aldo is a title holder and is gonna pick and choose who he fights,Pendred is taking any fight he gets to build a name/record.
A better comparison would be when Aldo joined WEC,he had 5 fights in a year basically the very same as Pendred now.

Aldo has his excuse boxed off now ..
Those who push for excellence will inevitably offend those who accept mediocrity.
