McGregor Vs Aldo Preview

Categories :

Saturday sees UFC 194 take place in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand with a main event that is set to be a bigger than Christmas for MMA fans.

The bout between McGregor and Aldo has been a long time in the making, after Aldo had to pull out from the fight when it was originally planned for UFC 189.

This McGregor Vs Aldo Preview sums up the stats of the fighters and how they’re performing at the moment.

McGregor vs Aldo is probably going to be the one of the biggest fights in MMA history, let alone of 2015.

With a 5 month build up and masses of hype fuelled by the trash talk and personality of Irish born McGregor, fans, fighters and bookies remain torn on who will come out on top.

Aldo: Lives to Fight, Fights to Live

Jose “Scarface” Aldo

Pre-Fight Stats

Age: 29
Height: 5’7”
Weight: 145 LBS
Association: Nova Uniao
Win – Loss – Draw: 25 – 1 – 0

Jose Aldo is currently the best pound for pound fighter in the UFC and has gone 10 years undefeated with his last loss to Luciano Azevedo in 2005.

Originally fighting on the MMA circuit in Rio de Janeiro, Aldo battled his way to where he is today and spending much of his early career fighting just to eat.

“I never allow success to shadow my personality or roots,” he told UFC 194 Embedded.

McGregor: Big Man, Big Mouth

Conor “Notorious” McGregor

Pre-Fight Stats

Age: 27
Height: 5’8”
Weight: 145 LBS
Association: SBG Ireland
Win – Loss – Draw: 18 – 2 – 0

Conor McGregor who remains undefeated in the UFC octagon and similarly fought his way to where he is today, claiming two belts in the Irish MMA circuit before stepping up to this division.

One of the main advantages McGregor brings to fights is his size. As former Lightweight fighter, McGregor’s larger frame allows him to deal more damage in the Featherweight Division and has brought him endless victories.

It’s this new success that has made him such a large personality in the sport, with boasts about his bank balance and ‘undeniable’ skill making any fight the athlete walks into a historic event in the sport.

And we believe in this McGregor Vs Aldo Preview: that this bout will be his biggest yet.

There has been plenty of trash talk come from Conor McGregor, with a two week press tour for UFC 189 giving the undefeated interim featherweight champion every opportunity to get under Aldo’s skin.

McGregor Vs Aldo Preview: Our Thoughts

Who wins the fight is still widely open to debate. Some see McGregor’s cockiness and arrogance as a sign that he is going to fail, and surely the Irishman must run out of luck at some point?

His standing game is strong, but if the fight goes to the ground it could well be Jose Aldo that dominates and comes out on top, as we saw with McGregors fight against Mendes.

UFC 194 is a night set to go down in MMA history. Conor McGregor’s rise to fame has been fast and sharp, with the Lightweight turned Featherweight cutting down to make the 145lb weight class where he dominates.

It’s even inspired other fighters to do the same, TUF Season 1 Champion Diego Sanchez has recently cut 190lbs to 145lbs to follow in McGregor’s footsteps, with his eye on the Irishman and a comeback.
