It appears one of Jose Aldo’s teammates wants a piece of Conor McGregor as well.
Yan Cabral who won his 155-pound debut fight over Naoyuki Kotani at UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro, is interested in challenging the mouthy Irish pugilist.
“I just got to the lightweight division, so my goal is to train, evolve and fight the best. I’ll eventually get to the top,” Cabral told the media after the win. “There’s a guy that I want to fight, a guy that has been talking a lot, talking about Jose Aldo as well: McGregor. He fights at 145, but talked about moving up to 155 for a fight, and I also thought about fighting at 145. I want to beat him up one day.”
Cabral says that there are a multitude of Nova Uniao fighters who could shut McGregor up.
“We have at least 10 featherweights at Nova Uniao that could beat him up,” Cabral said. “Until he gets to Aldo, there are more guys he has to beat. Hacran Dias would kill him.”
