“We catch [Conor McGregor] in the street. No matter how, we will fight. F*** it… No way [will I retire without fighting him again]. Only if he stops fighting. As long as he’s in the UFC, this fight will happen. That’s a fact. We will get the belt back and be champion again. We’ll move up. The UFC will do this fight. It doesn’t matter at which weight. I don’t care.”

Penick’s Analysis: It’s definitely a fight that should happen, but it’s going to take Aldo beating Edgar and the UFC urging McGregor back down to featherweight for it to happen soon. Without that, Aldo may have to move up, or in the case of a loss to Edgar may have to get back on track again. A lot of it depends on what McGregor does after UFC 202, but of course the most important thing for Aldo now is to beat Edgar a second time at UFC 200.
