McGregor steals Aldo’s UFC belt again; brawl almost ensues
Conor McGregor did it again, and this time things got a little testy.
In front of a raucous crowd in Dublin, the Irishman took his taunting game to a new level as he once again stole UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo’s belt during their fight’s press conference.
McGregor’s stunt was the second of its kind when he also stole Aldo’s belt as the champion was being interviewed and a locked door was between them.
This time the only thing, or human, separating them was UFC President Dana White who did his best to separate the two.
Aldo first declared, through an interpreter, that he is the “King of Ireland.”
“When I got here, it was raining, but I brought the sun with me.”
McGregor, with Irish blood running through him and Irish cheers lauding him, audaciously put his feet at the top of the table, reached beyond White, then swiped Aldo’s belt from the other table
“You’re looking at the king!” McGregor shouted as a member of the security personnel returned the belt to Aldo’s camp.
Aldo and McGregor are set to fight for the title on UFC 189, July 11 at Las Vegas. IDL
