Jose Aldo Is Getting Dragged On Twitter For Mocking Conor McGregor After His Loss
The majority of the UFC tipped its cap to Conor McGregor for a valiant 10-round effort against one of the best boxers of all-time. Eddie Alvarez said it was a “great show for the world of MMA.” Former UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold tweeted at McGregor: “money well earned. Respect.” Cody Garbrandt declared the fight “lived up to the hype.”
But one MMA fighter wasn’t as complimentary, which isn’t surprising.
The irony in Jose Aldo mocking McGregor for losing is that the Brazilian was decimated back in December 2015 after McGregor sent him face-first into the canvas just 13 seconds into the match. Aldo, who previously hadn’t lost in a decade, lost his featherweight title in the bout and possibly a chunk of his dignity.
Aldo’s tweet rightfully received some criticism from fans who have yet to forget how handily McGregor owned him.
