The biggest featherweight bout of all time is coming to Las Vegas Sat., July 11. At UFC® 189, Jose “Junior” Aldo, the featherweight champion of five years, will defend his title against the UFC’s latest phenomenon, Conor “The Notorious” McGregor.
Both confident featherweights, these two have been eyeing one another from afar for some time now. McGregor has had his eye on the prize of being crowned a champion as he has climbed up the ranks, and Aldo has not been oblivious to McGregor’s bravado.
Let us not forget McGregor jumping over the Octagon™ to come straight up to Aldo seated in the stands moments after he beat Dennis Siver at UFC® Fight Night 59, in Boston earlier this year.
Take a look at how each of these fighters stack-up and my prediction on who will prevail!
