Jose Aldo’s staking his claim for his rematch with Conor McGregor in the wake of McGregor’s loss to Nate Diaz on Saturday at UFC 196.
In a post to Twitter, Aldo called out McGregor for that Featherweight Championship fight at UFC 200, with a few choice words thrown in for good measure.

Penick’s Analysis: With McGregor now coming off a loss of his own, there’s more of a case to make this fight happen than there was before. Aldo was unbeaten in a decade, the only fighter to ever hold that belt. McGregor’s desire to hold multiple titles is out the door right now, and defending that Featherweight Title is what he’s got left. Beating Aldo a second time would be a huge bounce back, and though Frankie Edgar absolutely deserves a shot of his own, it’s hard to argue against Aldo getting that rematch now. Regardless, things have been shaken up to a significant degree.
