Conor McGregor Refuses To Play Jose Aldo In PR Ploy, Calls Champion ‘Fake’

This weekend, the UFC thought that it would be a great idea to have Conor McGregor play Jose Aldo in a soccer match. Apparently, the Irish featherweight contender didn’t agree.

“They tried to get us to play a game, to play football together,” McGregor said yesterday. “The f*ck? I’m not playing football with him. I’m not here to play friends. I’m not here to play games with this fool. I’m here to kill him.”

McGregor will meet Aldo at UFC 189 on July 11 in Las Vegas and the challenger says he is ready.

“I’m ready to fight tomorrow,” he said. “If something kicks off, I’m ready to go. There’s no commission out here, so if sh*t pops off I’m ready. I know that much. People think it’s a joke and I’m playing the joker. We’ll see who’s the joke tomorrow.”
