Conor McGregor claimed the UFC World Featherweight title after knocking out Jose Aldo just 13 seconds into the first round. Now Aldo wants an immediate rematch. Aldo suffered his first loss in more than ten years in Saturday’s UFC 194 pay-per-view headliner.
Aldo’s 18-fight winning streak and nearly five-year UFC featherweight title reign came to a stunning end when McGregor caught him with a perfect punch for a 13-second knockout victory.
According to MMA Junkie:
The outcome was humiliating for the Brazilian after a lengthy buildup to the grudge match, and while he gave McGregor credit for his ability to land the fight-ending blow, Aldo said he wants a shot at redemption.
“He threw a straight to my chest, I was expecting it, and when I went to attack him, he hit a good straight,” Aldo said in his post-fight interview (translated via Twitter). “I think this fight here, I think now we have to go to a rematch. I think it doesn’t end there. I think it was very fast there. He hit a good blow and was able to finish the fight.”
