Already, many on YouTube are scrambling to watch the Jose Aldo Knockout video since it is so crazy. This match was so fast that it even broke Ronda Rousey’s record for a title fight finish. In order to understand what happened, you pretty much need to watch the video in slow motion.
McGregor defeated Aldo in just 13 seconds after Aldo rushed in with a left hook to McGregor’s face. But McGregor connected with his own left hook, resulting McGregor becoming the undisputed UFC featherweight champion, and Aldo suffering his very first KO loss record.
According to the Mirror, McGregor is claiming the UFC 194 fight went almost exactly as he predicted it would happen.
“I said his right hand would get him into trouble,” McGregor explained. “I said he’d overload on his right hand, and that’s what happened. I see these shots. I see these sequences. If you truly believe in it. If you become vocal with it — you are creating that law of attraction and it will become reality. So, mystic Mac strikes again.”
Other UFC fighters were not so cavalier in their response. In fact, many seemed to be shocked.

Just sucks getting that hyped for a fight and that happens. Jose is better than that and we all know it — Matt Brown (@IamTheImmortal) December 13, 2015
The shock was so evident that some of the UFC fighter could only express themselves using curse words, so we can’t reprint them here. For example, Cat Zingano said, “F**k that s**t, fix it. You’re better then that. True UFC fans know.” This apparent demand for a Conor McGregor vs. Jose Aldo rematch was also expressed by many others, including Miesha Tate.

Not everyone seems to think a rematch is likely to happen any time soon, including Michael Johnson.
don’t see an immediate rematch coming! Frankie should be up next By that time I’ll hold that LW strap and welcome Conor with closed fists!

But McGregor looks like he has set his sights set on fighting others besides Aldo.
“Jose has been a phenomenal champion, my respect to Jose, I wish him well, and it’s on to the next chapter,” he said.
According to MMA Fighting, Jose Aldo is already talking about a Conor McGregor rematch, and he claims trash talking will not dissuade him at all.
“It didn’t affect anything,” Aldo said. “[McGregor] can say whatever he wants. I’ll never fall in any provocation. He was happy today, he hit me with a good punch. We have to go for a rematch, and I will be better prepared to reclaim what is mine.”
Right now, it is questionable if Aldo will get his rematch against “The Notorious” McGregor, although the UFC’s Dana White apparently told Fox Sports that there’s no doubt about a rematch taking place, but he didn’t give any details.
