UFC champion Fabricio Werdum lashes out at Conor McGregor

McGregor's loss earlier this month was his first in eight fights.

The back of a stamp would be deemed a superfluous surface to transcribe every word Jose Aldo uttered during his first five years with the UFC, but since losing the featherweight title his soundbites have become increasingly regular.

After comments he made yesterday which confused many, Aldo took to Twitter in an effort to engage with the MMA community. 

Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo believes Conor McGregor should end his time away from the 145-pound division and defend his title.

The unfortunate Aldo then revealed that besides his beloved Flamengo, his favorite football team is Chelsea, who now languishes in tenth in the Premier League.

Diaz was notified only 11 days before the fight with Dos Anjos suffering a foot injury while preparing for McGregor. McGregor is a cash cow for the UFC and will remain a drawing card no matter the result of the fight because his charisma, but two consecutive losses will dent his drawing power, if only until he regains his footing.

McGregor pointed to the weight difference as the main reason why he fell against Diaz, who was not happy with McGregor's excuses. Alternatively, the fight is a money match; probably the biggest realistic money match McGregor has right now, and a win will only reopen the doors for more fights of similar proportions.

There was a whole bunch of questions being asked in the lead up to UFC 196, as UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor prepared to take on Rafael dos Anjos, in an attempt to make UFC history.

Two weeks ago, I wrote that Diaz's win had thrown a wrench into the UFC's plans for UFC 200. Georges St. Pierre also could be fighting but nothing has been announced.
